Abstract

Authors report their clinical experience in the treatment of chylous disorders due to congenital dysplastic malformation or secondary to oncological operations with nodal dissection. They report proper diagnostic investigations including above all traditional oil contrast lymphangiography associated with CT scan. A sequential therapeutical sequence is finally described including conservative procedures, laparoscopic approach and microsurgical methods.
