THYROID AND PARATHYROIDS 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® LX
the most powerful parathyroid imaging solution!
FLUOBEAM® LX is an imaging device exclusively dedicated to thyroid and parathyroid surgery, which offers surgeons with an optimal comfort of use throughout the procedure. Highly sensitive, it allows to detect parathyroid gland by autofluorescence with an optimized real-time display, a high depth of field and a compatibility with ambient operating room lights.

FLUOBEAM® LX IN ACTION

Parathyroid gland identification

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

 Identification of vessels that vascularize parathyroid glands 

By easily combining autofluorescence and indocyanine green angiography during the procedure, FLUOBEAM® LX allows a clear identification of vessels that vascularize parathyroid glands and their preservation during thyroid dissection.
The global information provided by FLUOBEAM® LX (localization and vascularization of parathyroid glands) should allow to decrease significantly postoperative complications linked to damaged parathyroid glands during surgery.

 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® LX allows surgeons to clearly visualize the vascularization of the parathyroid glands and therefore to assess their viability during the surgery.
