Abstract

Disruption of the thoracic duct can have devastating consequences and be associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Conservative therapies have been attempted to treat chylothorax without much success. Surgical management has traditionally been necessary to provide definitive treatment at the expense of increased morbidity. Lymphatic interventions have recently emerged as a new frontier for interventional radiologists to add value and provide minimally invasive therapies for debilitating conditions. The goal of this manuscript is to review the anatomy of the thoracic duct, describe various percutaneous techniques for accessing the duct, and briefly discuss outcomes as reported in the literature.
