Abstract

Chylous ascites complicating a Warren shunt was successfully treated with a Denver peritoneovenous shunt. There was spontaneous closure of the chylous peritoneal fistula seven months after the Denver shunt was inserted. This approach obviates the nutritional and septic complications of repeated paracentesis in the management of patients with chylous ascites.
