CANINE THORACIC DUCT CANNULATION REVISITED
- D Briscoe
The knowledge of the physiopathologic aspects of lymph in certain pathologic thoracic states has increased, resulting in more thoracic duct oriented operations. Participation of the thoracic duct in the treatment of many clinical disorders, trauma, obstruction, tumors, portal hypertension, cirrhosis, pancreatitis, esophageal varices, immunologic depletion, biliary atresia, and diagnostic purposes (1) has furthered its reawakening. It has become timely to review the cannulation procedure of the canine thoracic duct.
