Abstract

Lymphatic leakage can develop as an iatrogenic complication of thoracic, cardiac, and neck surgery. The management of this complication may be challenging and involves more specialists. Percutaneous, image-guided techniques may offer two advantages: mini-invasivity and ability to image and identify the anatomy and the site of the leakage. We report a case of refractory cervical chylous leakage after thyroidectomy and lymphadenectomy for cancer that was successfully treated with an ultrasound-guided intranodal lymphangiography and a percutaneous puncture of the leak performed using CBCT as imaging guidance.
