Conclusion

Lymphangiography in conjunction with thoracic duct embolization is a relatively safe, powerful, and reliable interventional method. It enables identification of lymphatic leakage and provides complete occlusion, which results in complete resolution of one of the most devastating complications of thoraco-abdominal surgery. Due to its minimally invasive nature and its proven effectiveness, the need for reoperation and exposure to perioperative morbidity may be avoided.
