Doctor Fares Benmiloud shares his experience with FLUOBEAM®LX
Dr Fernando Dip
Maxillofacial surgery, otolaryngologists, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina and Cleveland Clinic, Florida, USA
'NIR fluorescence imaging significantly increases the number of parathyroid glands identified during thyroid surgery.'
Eren Berber, MD
Associate Professor of Surgery, Director of Robotic Endocrine Surgery, Co-director of Liver Tumor Ablation Program
'Identification of parathyroid glands is important to minimize hypocalcemia in thyroid surgery and to facilitate the parathyroidectomy procedures. Similar to using the neuromonitoring to identify the recurrent laryngeal nerve, I believe there is a value in using this technology in my cases.'
Dr. Sam Van Slycke
Endocrine Surgeon, OLV Clinic Aalst, Belgium.
'Near infrared (autofluorescence) imaging in endocrine surgery is a helpful tool in confirming and visualization of parathyroid glands. It is an excellent teaching instrument for less experienced surgeons. In combination with ICG fluorescence it can change your intra-operative decision making!'
Dr Fares Benmiloud
General Surgeon, European Hospital, Marseille, France
'Near-infrared use during total thyroidectomy significantly reduced postoperative hypocalcemia,improved parathyroid identification and reduced their autotransplantation rate.'
