Vascular thrombosis is a cause of allograft loss after pancreas transplantation. We present the use of intraoperative fluorescence imaging with the SPY imaging device (Novadaq Technologies Inc, Toronto, Canada) in two pancreas transplants as a means to assess patency of the vascular anastomoses. Intravenous indocyanine green 2.5 mg/mL was fluoresced with the device to create […]
