Abstract

Post-traumatic chylothorax needs surgical approach when conservative treatment is not successful to reduce chyle leakage. Thoracic duct ligation requires thoracoscopic or thoracotomic access. The authors report on a surgical thoracotomic approach to a severe and unremitting thoracic duct lesion after IX and X ribs and vertebral fractures.
