ZusammenfassungNach einer kurzen historischen Übersicht über den Chylothorax und einer abgrenzenden Darstellung der fett-haltigen Pleuraergüsse (pseudochylös, chyliform, chylös) werden zunächst 3 eigene Beobachtungen eines Spontan-Chylothorax (2 mal mit Chylascites, 1 mal mit Chyloperikard) mitgeteilt.Die klinische Bedeutung des Chylothorax beruht auf seiner Pathogenese. Daher werden die 300 Fälle des Schrifttums von 1945–1965 (einschließlich der 3 eigenen Beobachtungen) hinsichtlich ihrer… Expand
Experiences of postoperative chylothorax in children
Eight cases of postoperative chylothorax in children are discussed, and drainage of the pleura with continuous suction has proved to be the therapy of choice. Expand
Are There Early Clinical Factors to Decide Early Surgical Management for Secondary Chylothorax? A Review of 32 Cases
Chylothorax arising after esophageal resection with a flow rate of leak of more than 500 ml/day should be proposed to an earlier surgical treatment. Expand

Nach einer technisch schwierigen Pneumolyse kam es im Anschluß an die enzymatische Hämatomausräumung zu einem Chylothorax, der Fistel schloß sich nach 2 1/2 Wochen spontan, und der extrapleurale PneumothOrax blieb voll wirksam. Expand
Chylothorax in Children A Contribution to the Elucidation of the Pathogenesis
A case of a patient who was hospitalized for her lesion on two occasions in 1948 and 1949 in the University Hospital Paediatric Department, where the reproduction of exudate had ceased altogether after the first hospitalization, and the patient had a healthy appearance. Expand
Chylothorax as complication in pulmonary resection.
The decrease in mortality among patients operated for chylothorax is due to such factors as the general practice of intervening seven to 14 days after the trauma (before inanition or collapse may develop), improved anesthetic and surgical technics, antibiotics and careful postoperative attention.

The presence of a chylothorax is obvious when the pleura is perforated, but is difficult to explain when it is intact, as in the obstructive cases. Expand
Treatment of Chylothorax by Producing Pleurodesis Using Iodized Talc
The better results obtained by conservative treatment in recent years, as compared with a previous mortality rate approaching 50% in Shackelford and Fisher's series (1938), indicates that a trial of conservative treatment should be undertaken. Expand
The diagnosis and surgical management of chylothorax with the aid of lipophilic dyes.
A simple and specific test for chylothorax due to rupture of the thoracic duct is presented, in which the patient is fed a fat meal containing a lipophilic coal-tar dye, which becomes grossly detectable in the pleural fluid obtained by thoracentesis a few hours later. Expand
Management of chylous extravasation.
The extravasation of chyle into thoracic and abdominal cavities has been recognized as a clinical problem since the 17th century and a number of reviews with collected cases have appeared. Expand
Coincident bilateral chylothorax and chylous ascites.
A report of a case of a man admitted to the King County HospitaI on December 14, 1954 with problems of chylothorax and ascites, whether of traumatic or nontraumatic origin, which are increasing in frequency due to automobiIe injuries and to new surgica1 operations in the region of the thoracic duct.

Five cases of the last type of traumatic chylothorax are observed in the past four years, and these have shown a striking similarity in etiological factors, and it seems worth while to present them and to discuss their pathogenesis and management. Expand
Chylothorax and chyloperitoneum; report of a case occurring after embolism of left subclavian vein with thoracic duct obstruction.
Although the thoracic duct is usually a single structure that empties into the left subclavian vein, it is variable both in structure and venous termination, it may consist of multiple trunks in the thorax with cross communications. Expand
