Figure 1: (a) Assessing pulsations at proximal end of the conduit after trial clamping of middle colic, right colic & branch between ileo-colic & right colic artery (bulldog clamps seen in situ); (b) homogeneous fluorescence noted after administration of ICG; (c) appearance of the tip of conduit in the neck: conduit appears congested in visible light; (d) intense fluorescence under near-infrared light with ICG fluorescence imaging; (e) appearance after the anastomosis under visible light: C (colon), E (esophagus); (f) appearance after the anastomosis using ICG fluorescence imaging: C (colon), E (esophagus).
