Fluorescence angiography can change the operative strategy in performing colorectal anastomosis
One of the most important factors for a viable colorectal anastomosis is sufficient perfusion. The use of fluorescence angiography for perfusion assessment is a promising method which can be utilized in gastrointestinal surgery. We present a case with a 68-years-old male where fluorescence angiography resulted in a break down of a colorectal anastomosis resulting in a permanent ostomy.
