Microscope integrated indocyanine green videoangiography (ICG-VA) is a new technique for intraoperative assessment of blood flow that has been recently applied to the field of Neurosurgery. ICG-VA is known as a simple and practical method of blood flow assessment with acceptable reliability. Real time information obtained under magnification of operating microscope has many potential applications in the microneurosurgical management of vascular lesions. This review is based on institutional experience with use of ICG-VA during surgery of intracranial aneurysms, AVMs and other vascular lesions at the Department of Neurosurgery at Helsinki University Central Hospital.
