ActivSight is used in colorectal surgery to evaluate tissue perfusion when creating anastomoses. This surgeon is using ActivSight in a colectomy to assess perfusion post-dissection pre-transection, pre-anastomosis, and post-anastomosis.
“ActivSight is valuable in my surgical practice because it provides dye-free, real-time tissue perfusion information at critical surgical decision points.”— Emily Huang, MD, Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
Thoracic / Foregut
In thoracic procedures, ActivSight is used in esophagectomy with ActivPerfusion to show tissue viability in the chest, showing a clear line of demarcation in the esophagus. This surgeon is using ActivSight to conduct an abdominal evaluation of the gastric conduit, an intrathoracic evaluation of the gastric conduit pre-anastomosis, and an intrathoracic evaluation post-anastomosis.
“ActivSight provides instantaneous feedback to help guide intra-operative decision-making. The fact that it is non-invasive, hardware agnostic, with an easy-to-navigate learning curve further adds to ease of incorporation into surgical flow. I look forward to the ongoing development and implementation of this technology.”– Dr. Kirsten Newhams, MD, MPH
In revisional bariatric procedures, blood supply is altered due to changes from the index procedure. As a result, small bowel can be more susceptible to ischemia. This surgeon is using ActivSight to assess perfusion of the small bowel pre-anastomosis.
“The benefit ActivSight brings to my practice is an increased level of confidence and efficiency. Specifically, as it relates to when you are in the Operating Room and dealing with complicated anatomy, being able to make sure that you have good perfusion quickly and efficiently, that you could not get in the past.”– Erik Wilson, MD, Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at Memorial-Hermann Texas Medical Center
“The ActivSight system, when used in laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures, produced an ICG enhanced image consistent with best-in-class performance as seen in the industry, and that guided intraoperative decision-making, improving safety.”– Steven Schwaitzberg, MD, FACS
