“ICG to Assess Ovarian Perfusion”
To assess the feasibility of using intravenous ICG to characterize the vascular perfusion of ovaries during gynecologic surgery
Drug - ICG
Indocyanine green (ICG) is a Food and Drug (FDA)-approved tricarbocyanine dye that is fluorescent under near-infrared (NIR) light. ICG solutions for injection often contain sodium iodide. ICG is water soluble and when introduced intravenously, it is bound by plasma proteins, namely albumin. The intravascular half-life of ICG is 3-4 minutes with rapid hepatic clearance.
