Here in, we described and discussed a successful case of image-guided percutaneous embolization of cisterna chyli as a treatment modality for chylous
fistula after failed conservative treatment modalities in an adult.
Though criticism and limitations in terms of requirement of fasting sample, unsuitability for chylous
specimens and Frederickson classified type-I hypercholesterolemia were the major limitations for this calculated LDLc,5 still the calculated LDLc (cLDLc) got slowly incorporated into the labs and received recommendations from various authorities.6,7 Alongside the directly measuring clinically suitable technologies for measuring LDLc also evolved, became simplified by removing multiple steps and to some extent cost-effective and less labor intensive.
Seromas are composed of clear liquid, while lymphoceles have chylous
content and contain triglycerides.
We conclude that in cN0 patients, removal at levels II and III is mandatory but levels I, IV, and V may be spared, possibly lead to a significant decrease in surgical morbidity because lesions of the phrenic nerve, a mandibular branch of the facial nerve, and chylous
fistula are associated with removal at levels I and IV.
Hypopharyngeal fistula (6), Horner's syndrome, chylous
leakage fistula (7,8), flap edema (7) and seroma (8) are rare complications following thyroidectomy.
GSS presents with lytic destruction of one or more bones, which may also include chylous
effusion in the pleurae, peritoneum, and cystic lesions in visceral organs, such as the spleen.
ascites as a late complication of immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) in patients with HIV and colonic Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is an uncommon occurrence and has rarely been reported in the literature.
Immediately after volvulus detorsion and suction of a liter of chylous
effusion, multiple full-thickness ileal and ascending colon biopsies were obtained.
ascites is a rare cause of turbid dialysate and has been associated with lymphoma, pancreatitis, and superior vena cava syndrome.
According to European Respiratory Society guidelines for the diagnosis and management of LAM, the diagnosis can be made clinically with the combination of findings from high-resolution CT and patient's history (angiomyolipoma, lymphangiomyolipoma, chylothorax or abdominal chylous
effusion, definite or probable TSC) and/or by pathological diagnosis made by tissue biopsy.
Amylase, lipase, triglyceride, HDL, and LDL were studied in the patient's blood after emulsion of chylous
fluid from abdomen during the cesarean section.
ascites (4.3%), which is significantly greater than the 0.4%-1.7% rate reported in a primary open series [4, 9, 36].
