Abstract: Chylothorax is a debilitating condition characterized by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid into the pleural space. This research is about a new minimally invasive procedure to treat chylothorax. The surgery involves inserting a catheter into the thoracic duct and creating an embolism (blockage). The procedure had a low success rate and is not yet recommended for clinical use, however, technical modifications may eventually allow this procedure to be used on clinical cases.
