Toluidine Blue Dye

There’s been little written about TB dye in the peer-reviewed literature over the past 30 years, so I have included all of the research (that I could find) here, along with a selection of text books that include it, as well. Some discuss the utility of TB dye in greater depth than others. As with any research, it is imperative that you read these articles (particularly the older ones) with a critical eye toward the methodology used and the relevance of their findings in light of advances in the science. Not included below (but obviously important to take note of) are links to the relevant sections of both the Adult/Adolescent and Pediatric National Protocols. (UPDATED 8/19)
