Indocyanine green (ICG) is a near-infrared dye that has been used in the clinic for retinal angiography, and defining cardiovascular and liver function for over 50 years. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in the incorporation of ICG into nanoparticles (NPs) for cancer theranostic applications. Various types of ICG-incorporated NPs have been developed and strategically functionalised to embrace multiple imaging and therapeutic techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment. This review systematically summaries the biodistribution of various types of ICG-incorporated NPs for the first time, and discusses the pri...

Conclusion This study shows that significant PAD is present in almost 15% of ischemic Egyptian patients. We recommend ABI to be done routinely in patients with significant CAD for exclusion or diagnosis of PAD to help in treatment and improving quality of life in addition to modification of cardiac rehabilitation program in presence of PAD according to its severity.

AbstractPurposeStudies focusing on the originating patterns of the deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEA) have not been conducted. Here, we analyzed the vascular anatomy of the DIEA with computed tomographic angiography (CTA) to provide assistance during proximal pedicle dissection of a DIEA-based flap.MethodsWe conducted a retrospective study on patients who had undergone breast reconstruction with the transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap and the deep inferior epigastric perforator flap from March 2006 to October 2016. Preoperative three-dimensional computed tomographic angiograms of the abdominal wall (hemi-...
