Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean pixel intensity using dynamic laser-induced-fluorescence-videoangiography [ Time Frame: dec. 2008--des 2010 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Perfusion measurements were conducted intraoperatively by assessing microcirculation using the technique of dynamic laser-induced-fluorescence-videoangiography (IC-VIEW, PULSION Medical Systems AG, Munich, Germany).


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: September 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Indocyanine green (ICG)
    a water-soluble dye that binds to plasma proteins and remains in the intravascular space after intravenous injection.ICG has a normal plasma half life of 3-4 min. Dosage planned is 0 .5 mg/kg dose of ICG resolved in 5 % dextrose 2 mg /ml.
Detailed Description:

Perforator flaps are increasingly used in reconstructive surgery both as pedicled and free flaps, mostly because of reduced donor site morbidity and superior aesthetic result. However, the there is still much to learn about the hemodynamic changes within these flaps.The aim of the present study is to assess the microcirculatory changes in the distal part of the perforator flap using ICG fluorescence angiography.
