"Very likely," says the doctor: "I have known people eat in a fever; and it is very easily accounted for; because the acidity occasioned by the febrile matter may stimulate the nerves of the diaphragm, and thereby occasion a craving which will not be easily distinguishable from a natural appetite; but the aliment will not be concreted, nor assimilated into chyle
, and so will corrode the vascular orifices, and thus will aggravate the febrific symptoms.
It is conceivable that occult trauma to lymphatic collaterals during dissection of the internal thoracic artery, or during cautery of small vessels in the superior left mediastinum, could have allowed gradual accumulation of chyle
and symptomatic onset at a time remote from thoracotomy.
The fluid may be straw-colored (lymph), or fat-containing, milky white (chyle
), or pinkish-red if it contains blood.
, from the Greek word chymos meaning "juice," is a milky body fluid that consists of lymph and is abundant with triglyceride-rich chylomicrons.
The high-resolution ultrasonographic imaging has been reported to assess the diameters, structures, and chyle
flows of normal TD.
(b) Including cardiovascular events, cerebrovascular events, deep vein thrombosis, and chyle
Among the 5 (2.6%) patients suffering from chyle
leakage, 2 (1.1%) patients underwent the second operation to ligate the fistula.
Fistula: The key to treatment of a chyle
fistula is prevention which demands knowledge of the relevant anatomy.
Increased presence of lipids imparts a milky or opalescent colour to the effusion and such an effusion that contains chyle
is called chylothorax.

Leakage in Patients Undergoing Lateral Neck Dissection for Metastatic Thyroid Cancer.
[Examines "the physiology of digestion within the poetics" of Emerson and Whitman and probes "Whitman's 'Emersonianism' at the end, rather than the beginning of these writers' careers," focusing on "two neglected yet important works, Whitman's Two Rivulets (1876) and Emerson's "Poetry and the Imagination" (1875), both of which use the word "chyle
" and the figure of what Emerson calls "intellectual digestion," a metonymic process that suggests "a paradox of identity through change, of composition by way of decomposition"; includes a reading of "Out From Behind This Mask" as it appears in Two Rivulets (printed directly above prose that comments on "chyle
After a significant decrease or cessation of chyle
output, patients received a strict low-fat diet with medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) for at least 4 weeks.
