Abstract

A new technique was developed in dogs for direct visualization of the thoracic duct - innominate venous junction. A modified Dyonics needlescope introduced through the left extemal jugular vein permitted vascular endoscopy (lymphoscopy) with internal cannulation and retrograde lymphangiography of the thoracic duct.
