Occasionally, the typical transverse medial wound is very cephalad and does not allow for the proper visualization of the fracture. It is difficult to decide how to extend these open wounds to get access to the fracture while minimizing disruption of the blood supply to the skin. We describe the use of a new tool, laser-assisted indocyanine green angiography, to assist in incision planning for the definitive treatment of these injuries.
