ENDOCRINE SURGERY

Parathyroid glands real-time identification 

INTRAOPERATIVE FLUORESCENCE IMAGING: 

A PRECISE AND EFFICIENT METHOD.

Parathyroid gland identification can be challenging even for skilled surgeons due to their tiny size (a few mm) and that they are often buried in fat tissue or ectopic (located in atypical areas).

The unexpected excision of healthy parathyroid glands is a current complication of thyroidectomies. This can lead to hypoparathyroidism, most of the time transient, and might come with disruptions of calcium metabolism and notably hypocalcemia. It is therefore critical to properly identify parathyroid glands during surgery.

FLUOBEAM® IN ACTION

Parathyroid glands identification

Unique to FLUOBEAM®  parathyroid glands emit fluorescence in the near Infrared without any dye injection. This is called auto-fluorescence. FLUOBEAM® allows the surgeon to identify in real-time parathyroid glands and to preserve them during surgery. 
FLUOBEAM® also allows surgeons to visualize parathyroid adenoma using auto-fluorescence. This detection guides the surgeon and makes resection easier.

 Checking the parathyroid gland vascularization 

It is commonly known that complications such as transient hypocalcemia are linked to the unexpected excision of parathyroid glands or the alteration of the vascularization of these glands during thyroid surgery.
After intravenous injection of indocyanine green, FLUOBEAM® allows surgeons to clearly visualize the vascularization of the parathyroid glands and therefore to assess their viability during the surgery.
