Near infrared fluorescence laparoscopy is used in general surgery to perform fluorescence cholangiography. For optimal results indocyanine green (ICG) dye should be given one hour prior to the start of the case, and it is commonly thought that if the preoperative dose is missed the technique cannot be used. With this case, we demonstrate that intraoperative dosing of ICG can still yield valuable anatomical information and that the ICG cholangiography should thus not be discounted when a preoperative dose is not possible.
