Case Report Highlight: Use of Near-infrared Incisionless Fluorescent Cholangiography (NIFC) for Identification of the Anatomy in Biliary Surgery
Bile duct injuries during laparoscopic cholecystectomy remain a
potentially devastating complications and are responsible for major 1
morbidity and prolonged hospitalization . Visual misperception, anatomical variations in the extrahepatic biliary tree, combined with inflammatory changes and surgeon inexperience in recognizing the
2 anatomy, are among the most common reasons for these injuries .
Near-infrared Incisionless Fluorescent Cholangiography (NIFC) has been
shown to improve the visualization and identification of the biliary structures compared to traditional white light.
