Abstract

Objective: To discuss the role of FLOW 800 innovative software for analytical color visualization and objective evaluation of fluorescence videos obtained by microscope-integrated intraoperative indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence angiography in arteriovenous malformations (AVM) surgery. Materials and Methods: Microscope-integrated intraoperative FLOW 800 was used and evaluated in three consecutive AVM surgeries over a period of two months. The role of FLOW 800 to distinguish feeding arteries from arterialized veins and other arteries was evaluated. Its advantages and limitations over conventional intraoperative ICG angiography were evaluated. Results: This software was found to be useful in identifying arterial feeders, arterialized veins and other arteries in all the three patients and it gives additional information on the status of AVM before and after clipping suspected feeders which is sometimes difficult to interpret on conventional ICG angiography. Conclusion: Flow 800 is a reliable and useful addition to microscope-integrated color ICG video angiography. Although its role is limited in deep-seated AVMs, if properly dissected and exposed it can give useful information which can be easily interpretable and reproducible.
