Abstract: We describe the technical operative details of the robotic repair of a type II endoleak (T2E) following endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). We demonstrate that indocyanine green (ICG) can be used intra-operatively to demonstrate perfusion of the colon following ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) vessel feeding the aneurysm sac.
Conclusion: A total robotic approach can be performed safely with intra-operative ICG used to demonstrate colonic perfusion as an added safety measure.
