131 Possible Causes for Thoracic Duct Obstruction

  • Ligation of the Thoracic Duct

    Ultrasonography is used to avoid vascular structures, and the fluoroscopy is used to target the opacified duct. [24] Thoracic duct obstruction The association between sudden[emedicine.medscape.com] Obstruction Of Thoracic Duct Sometimes in filarial infection, the thoracic duct is obstructed by microfilarial parasites (Wuchereriabancrofti) leading to widespread effects[earthslab.com] It occurred to one of us (H.L.A.) that thoracic-duct ligation might provide a model for a study of the effect of lymphatic obstruction dissociated from venous hypertension[nejm.org]

  • Lymphangioma Circumscriptum

    Chylous ascites – The presence of chyle in the peritoneal cavity as a result of anomalies, injuries, or obstruction of the thoracic duct.[lgdalliance.org] Chylous effusion – The leakage of chyle from the thoracic duct.[lgdalliance.org]

  • Abdominal Surgery

    To test postoperative serum albumin drop (ΔAlb) as a marker of surgical stress response and early predictor of clinical outcomes. Prospective cohort study (NCT02356484). Albumin was prospectively measured in 138 patients undergoing major abdominal surgery. Blood samples were collected before surgery and on[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Disseminated Histoplasmosis

    Laryngeal histoplasmosis is very rare among patients with HIV and very few cases have so far been documented. We report a case of laryngeal histoplasmosis in a patient with no prior AIDS defining diagnosis, which mimicked epithelial neoplasia, and was treated successfully with oral fluconazole.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracic Surgery

    Cardiothoracic surgery (also known as thoracic surgery) is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax (the chest)—generally treatment of conditions of the heart ( heart disease ) and lungs ( lung disease ). In most countries, cardiac surgery (involving the heart and the great[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Thyroid metastasis from pancreatic adenocarcinoma is extremely rare, with only two previous cases in the literature. We report a case of pancreatic adenocarcinoma metastasising to the thyroid. We review the incidence, diagnosis, and management of this rare occurrence. A 38-year-old man with a synchronous 6-month[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Filariasis

    The objective of this series was to show that the sonographic appearance described as the "filarial dance" is not characteristic of filariasis but occurs in nonendemic areas as a manifestation of epididymal obstruction. An experienced observer documented cases after initial observation of the filarial dance in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
