The thoracic duct may be injured in a variety of surgical procedures as well as obstructing processes, predisposing individuals to chylothoraces, chylopericardium, and postoperative chylous wound leakages, leading to nutritional depletion and impaired respiratory function. Knowledge of thoracic duct anatomy coupled with awareness of appropriate thoracic duct embolization techniques allows highly successful treatment with minimal morbidity or mortality.
