In this lecture, Professor Antonino Spinelli talks about the use of fluorescence imaging to confirm vascularisation of the ileal pouch. Fluorescence imaging has been used widely in the recent years as a tool to evaluate perfusion in colorectal surgery. It appears to be of even more importance in pouch construction, but it needs refining and decisions must be guided by clinical experience.
