To evaluate the correlation between computed tomography (CT) findings after therapeutic lymphangiography for lymphatic leakage and the clinical course of lymphatic leakage. Therapeutic lymphangiography for lymphatic leakage was performed in 14 patients. In all patients, CT was performed 0.5–26 h (mean 6.9 h) after lymphangiography and results were retrospectively evaluated. In 8 of the 14 patients (57 %), lymphatic leakage stopped after lymphangiography. Lymphatic leakage was detected on CT in… CONTINUE READING
