Chylothorax secondary to a pleuroperitoneal communication and chylous ascites after pancreatic resection.

J Surg Case Rep 2019 Jan 24;2019(1):rjy364. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of General Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Shiga University Medical Science, Setatsukinowa-cho, Otsu, Shiga 5202192, Japan.

To the best of our knowledge, there have been no previous reports of chylothorax developing after pancreatectomy, although chylous ascites can occur. In patients with a pleuroperitoneal communication, ascitic fluid can flow into the thoracic cavity through a small hole in the diaphragm. A 70-year-old woman underwent total pancreatectomy and was referred to our department for treatment of right chylothorax after removal of her abdominal drainage tubes. Read More

Ligation of thoracic duct during thoracoscopic esophagectomy can lead to decrease of T lymphocyte.

J Cancer Res Ther 2018 ;14(7):1535-1539

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Qianfoshan Hospital of Shandong Province, Shandong University, Jinan, Shandong, China.

Background: Video-assisted thoracoscopic esophagectomy has been one of the most preferable surgical treatments for early esophageal cancer. Some scholars suggested that the thoracic duct should be routinely ligated to reduce the incidence of postoperative chylothorax, while another group raised an objection. As a classic indicator of immune function, T lymphocyte subsets can be applied to assess the effects of prophylactic thoracic duct ligation during thoracoscopic esophagectomy. Read More

Direct contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance lymphangiography in the diagnosis of persistent occult chylous effusion leak after thoracic duct embolization.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2019 Mar 13;7(2):251-257. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Section of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, Calif. Electronic address:

Thoracic duct embolization (TDE) is currently the technique of choice for chylothorax refractory to medical management. Diagnosis and treatment of persistent lymphatic leakage after an initially successful TDE are complicated by inadequate imaging to localize the nidus of the lymphatic leak. Traditional imaging modalities including nuclear medicine lymphoscintigraphy, magnetic resonance lymphangiography, and fluoroscopic lymphangiography lack spatial resolution and dynamic physiologic real-time evaluation.

Tetralogy of Fallot in the Current Era.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Only few studies have reported long-term outcome of the transatrial-transpulmonary approach in the current era of management of tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). We investigated 15-year outcome of correction via a transatrial-transpulmonary approach in a large cohort of successive patients operated in the 21st century. All infant ToF patients undergoing transatrial-transpulmonary ToF correction between 2000 and 2015 were included (N = 177, 106 male, median follow-up 7. Read More

Gan To Kagaku Ryoho 2018 Oct;45(10):1449-1451

Respiratory Division, Dept. of Internal Medicine, Itami City Hospital.

Chylothorax has been reported to be caused by accidental injuries in half of all cases in Japan, and < 10% of these cases have been associated with malignant tumors, including lymphoma. Chylothorax is a rare complication of gastric carcinoma. We successfully treated a 58-year-old man with gastric carcinoma, chylothorax, and ascites using a combination of talc pleurodesis and a lipid-limited diet. Read More

Body surface area as a novel risk factor for chylothorax complicating video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer.

Thorac Cancer 2018 Dec 16;9(12):1741-1753. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.

Background: The study was conducted to demonstrate the predictive value of body surface area (BSA) for chylothorax complicating video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Methods: Large-scale retrospective analysis was conducted on the data of 1379 patients who underwent VATS lobectomy between January 2014 and October 2017 at our institution. Receiver operating characteristic analysis was conducted to determine a threshold BSA value for the prediction of chylothorax. Read More

[Modern Treatment Options for Postoperative Chylothorax: a Systematic Review].

Zentralbl Chir 2018 Oct 15. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Klinik für Thoraxchirurgie, REGIOMED Kliniken GmbH, Sonneberg/Coburg, Deutschland.

Background: Chylothorax is a multifactorial complication, usually caused by surgery or traumatic injury, and more rarely by malignant disease. Because of the lack of prospective, randomised trials, the evidence-based treatment rests upon personal experience, but ideally taking into account retrospective analysis.

Material And Methods: The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of the currently available modern treatment options. Read More

[Energy Device and Soft Coagulation System in Thoracic Surgery].

Kyobu Geka 2018 09;71(10):759-762

Division of Chest Surgery, Department of Surgery, Toho University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

While the recent emergence of energy-based surgical techniques and soft coagulation has made surgical procedures less invasive, the safety and proper use of such advances have yet to be investigated. Herein we review the experimental and clinical use of ultrasonically-activated coagulating shears, a vessel sealing system, incorporating ultrasonic and vessel sealing technology, and a soft coagulation system in thoracic surgery. All energy devices have been reported to be safe for use on pulmonary vessels, and use in combination with a ligature appears to be adequate. Read More
