  • lymphatic
  • Scintigraphic finding was well correlated with the subsequent thoracoscopic observation, showing chyle leakage from a lymphatic tributary near its confluence to the thoracic duct at the level of the azygos continuation. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Injury of the the thoracic duct or the adjacent small lymphatic channels is commonly met with esophagectomy, mediastinal exenteration, or pediatric cardiac operation. (annexpublishers.co)
  • Ultrasonography of the cisterna chyli has been used in humans to diagnose increased lymphatic flow or lymph flow obstruction and to guide percutaneous embolization of the thoracic duct via the cisterna chyli. (wiley.com)
  • injury
  • As the chylothorax was considered to be due to thoracic duct injury at the time of operation, lymphoscintigraphy was performed by oral administration of I-123 beta-methyl-iodophenyl pentadecanoic acid (BMIPP). (semanticscholar.org)
  • aorta
  • It traverses the diaphragm at the aortic aperture and ascends the superior and posterior mediastinum between the descending thoracic aorta (to its left) and the azygos vein (to its right). (wikipedia.org)
  • abdomen
  • Conclusion: This study challenges the paradigm that abdominal lymphatics join in the abdomen to pass the diaphragm as a single thoracic duct. (uu.nl)
  • right side
  • Generally, the dissection plan for the RIGHT SIDE includes locating the three parts of the subclavian artery (and their branches) and the brachial plexus, whereas the plan for the LEFT SIDE includes locating the thoracic duct and the anterior scalene muscle, and preserving the classic anatomical relationships of the anterior scalene muscle.

  • on the right side, it drains into the right lymphatic duct. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • Hypothesis on the swiss-roll method of investigating cancer necrosis during metastasis in the human thoracic duct. (alliedacademies.org)
  • By 1798, the great Sir Astley Cooper adverted to the importance of the thoracic duct regarding the "human economy. (alliedacademies.org)
  • The great Sir Astley Cooper [ 1 ] appreciated back in 1798 the importance of the thoracic duct as regards the "human economy. (alliedacademies.org)
  • Accordingly, this paper hypothesizes on the need for a wider approach to using the Swiss-roll technique to unravel the hidden treasures constituted by the natural necrosis of cancer cells which daily metastasize in the human thoracic duct. (alliedacademies.org)
  • Finally, the hypothesis itself rests on obtaining from the human thoracic ducts the necessary two scientific subsets consisting of both lively and necrotizing cancer cells [ 9 ]. (alliedacademies.org)
  • All other sections of the human body are drained by the thoracic duct. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • Although small, the results of this series suggest that the formation of the thoracic duct above the diaphragm is more common than previously thought. (uu.nl)
  • Male
  • mesonephric duct an embryonic duct of the mesonephros, which in the male becomes the epididymis, ductus deferens and its ampulla, seminal vesicles, and ejaculatory duct, and in the female is largely obliterated. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • müllerian duct either of the two paired embryonic ducts developing into the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes, and becoming largely obliterated in the male. (thefreedictionary.com)
