The diagnostic value of computed tomography during lymphangiography on the postoperative chylothorax in a lung cancer



The diagnostic value of computed tomography during lymphangiography on the postoperative chylothorax in a lung cancer



Journal of the Japanese Association for Thoracic Surgery 37(2): 379-382



A successfully operated case of postoperative chylothorax in a lung cancer was reported, under the diagnosis of computed tomography during lymphangiography demonstrating the disruption of the thoracic duct. The computed tomography during lymphangiography is considered to be very useful for deciding the surgical indication of postoperative chylothorax and prompt surgical treatment is recommended when the main truncus of the thoracic duct is lacerated.
