OBJECTIVE: Glioma resection with fluorescein sodium (FNa) guidance has a potential drawback of nonspecific leakage of FNa from nontumor areas with a compromised bloode-brain barrier. We investigated the diagnostic accuracy of in vivo confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) after FNa administration to differentiate normal brain, injured normal brain, and tumor tissue in an animal glioma model.
