Chylothorax after high translumbar aortography. (1/50)

Two patients who had high translumbar aortograms for suspected arterial disease developed shortness of breath 48 hours after aortography and were found to have chylothoraces. Conservative management was initially adopted for both, but surgery had to be resorted to, although the first patient died before arriving in the operating theatre. The literature and the management of this condition are reviewed.  (+info)

Isolated chylopericardium due to mediastinal lymphangiomatous hamartoma;. (2/50)

Isolated chylopericardium is a rare cause of pericardial effusion. Intrapericardial chyle was first noticed by Hasebroek (1888) at necropsy. Twenty years ago Groves and Effler (1954) first reported a clinical case of isolated chylopericardium. The present case is similar to theirs in several respects, and is the nineteenth case to be reported. To our knowledge this is the first British report of an isolated chylopericardium and is the fourth case of isolated chylopericardium due to a mediastinal lymphangiomatous hamartoma to be successfully treated.  (+info)

Chylous ascites following abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy. Management with total parenteral hyperalimentation. (3/50)

Chylous ascites may follow operative injury to retroperitoneal lymphatics. When possible, early reoperation has been advised. This report describes a patient with chylous ascites following emergency abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy. Because the patient was not a candidate for reoperation, total parenteral hyperalimentation was employed in management. This approach resulted in a successful outcome.  (+info)

Multiple chylous cysts of abdomen causing intestinal obstruction. (4/50)

A case of multiple chylous cysts of the abdomen in a 35 years old female is presented here. The patient presented with signs and symptoms of acute intestinal obstruction. Exploratory laparotomy revealed few intestinal adhesions along with multiple small cysts containing blood stained gelatinous material in the abdominal cavity, some of which were excised alongwith lymph nodes. The abdomen was closed after a saline peritoneal lavage. Chylous nature of the cysts was confirmed on histopathology. The post-operative course was asymptomatic.  (+info)

Retroperitoneoscopic renal pedicle lymphatic disconnection for chyluria. (5/50)

OBJECTIVE: To report our experiences in retroperitoneoscopic renal pedicle lymphatic stripping for chyluria. METHODS: Six cases of filarial chyluria were admitted to our hospital from November 2001 to June 2002. Of these cases, 4 were men and 2 women, with age ranging from 34 to 52 years (mean, 42 years). Diagnosis was made by using urine test for the presence of chyle and fat globule, cystoscopy, excretory urogram and retrograde pyelography. Chyluria was found on the left renal unit in 2 cases and on the right side in 4 cases. The technique of retroperitoneoscopic management of chyluria consisted of nephrolympholysis, hilar vessel stripping and ureterolympholysis. RESULTS: Operative time ranged from 69 to 120 minutes (mean, 95 minutes). Intraoperative blood loss was 50-180 ml (mean, 85 ml). Chyluria disappeared in all patients immediately after operation. Mild hematuria occurred in 4 cases within 12 hours and disappeared at 24 hours. Subcutaneous emphysema around the lesions was found in 2 cases and was spontaneously absorbed 3 days after the treatment. There was no lymphatic leak at the lesions. The patients were discharged from the hospital 5-9 days after the treatment. All patients gained weight and their haemoglobin and serum protein increased by 13.5 g/L and 3.66 g/L respectively. No chyluria recurrence was reported during 1-1.6 years follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Retroperitoneoscopic renal pedicle lymphatic disconnection for chyluria is a safe, effective and efficient surgical procedure with minimal invasion, less pain, lower morbidity, short hospital stay and rapid recovery.  (+info)

Life threatening chylous pleural and pericardial effusion in a patient with Behcet's syndrome. (6/50)

Chylothorax and chylopericardium secondary to thrombosis of the superior vena cava and the innominate and subclavian veins were diagnosed in a patient with Behcet's syndrome. Immunosuppressive treatment, diet, and underwater seal drainage led to a diminished volume of pleural fluid and pericardial fluid and to a diminished concentration of triglyceride in them; pleurodesis with tetracycline was then performed.  (+info)

Successful treatment of chyluria, glomerular and tubular abnormalities in a young lady with silver nitrate instillation. (8/50)

A 21- year-old lady presented with chyluria, severe malnutrition, secondary amenorrhea, profound hypoalbuminemia, heavy proteinuria and renal tubular abnormalities suggestive of Type IV renal tubular acidosis. No particular cause for chyluria could be ascertained. She was successfully treated with an injection of 2% silver nitrate into the left ureter and urinary bladder. She continues to be well after 15 years of follow-up.  (+info)

Chyle fistula is defined as a leakage of lymphatic fluid from the lymphatic vessels, typically accumulating in the thoracic or abdominal cavities but occasionally manifesting as an external fistula. Chyle fistula is a rare but potentially devastating and morbid condition.
Dıscussıon. Lymphatic ducts draining renal parenchyma and capsule which are rich in lymphatic ducts are drained via renal hilum into the lateral aortic and interaortacaval lymph nodes. Chyluria is a condition explained by Ackermans obstructive theory firstly in 1893 are generally benign but can cause serious morbidity. In this theory, it is proposed that lymphatic fluid is drained to urine by a fistula between renal lymphatics and pelvicaliceal system (1,2). Chyluria is occurred in Southeast Asia, South America and Asia because of parasitic infections like filariasis, and cysticercosis echinococcus. On the other hand in Europe, North Asia and North America granulomatos infection, neoplasia, lymphatic malformations and kidney surgery and trauma are reasons for chyluria. All of these diseases can cause chyluria by lymph calyceal fistula because of obstruction in lymphatic ducts (2). In chyluria cases which are treatment resistant or not treated for a long time, renal dysfunction, nephritic ...
Chyluria, also called chylous urine, is a medical condition involving the presence of chyle in the urine stream, which results in urine appearing milky white. The condition is usually classified as being either parasitic or non parasitic. It is a condition that is more prevalent among people of Africa and the Indian subcontinent. Chyluria appearance is irregular and intermittent. It may last several days, weeks or even months. There are several factors that trigger Chyluria recurrence. Chyluria is often caused by filariasis due to the parasite Wuchereria bancrofti, a thready nematode which lodges the lymph channels. The parasitic infection can lead to obstruction of peripheral lymphatic vessels and increased pressure within the vessels causing collateral flow of the lymph, redirecting the lymph flow from the intestinal lymphatic vessels into the lymphatic vessels of the kidney and ureter. Because of obstruction, subsequent local inflammation of the area leads to dilation of the lymph vessels and ...

We report five cases of vesical and paravesical granulomas of varied aetiology and discuss their diagnosis and management. Granulomas may occur a few months to several years after surgery. One of our patients had a neglected laminaria tent kept for abortion four years ago that migrated up anterior to the bladder. She had conceived and delivered a full-term normal baby uneventfully one and a half years after the abortion, and eventually presented with haematuria and right groin swelling. An-other patient who presented with a midline supravesical mass gave a histoer of two diagnostic laparoscopies done over a span of two years for infertility, and endometrial curettage for incomplete spontaneous abortion. The third patient had sustained a gunshot injury in the lower abdomen more than a year prior to the development of haematuria. The bullet deep in the left side of pelvis was left unretrieved at the time of initial laparotomy and there was an inflammatory band of encapsulated tissue from the ...
Chyluria: Another of the chronic filarial syndromes, Chyluria, is caused by the intermittent discharge of intestinal lymph (chyle) into the renal pelvis and subsequently into the urine. The mechanisms underlying this discharge have not been well defined, though the clinical course is known to be intermittent, sometimes remitting after treatment with DEC, sometimes after lymphangiography (owing to the scelerosing effects of the injected contrast material) or sometimes spontaneously. Nutritional compromise can, however, be severe in patients with chronic chyluria; special low-fat, high-protein diets supplemented with fluids that minimize the intake and subsequent loss of medium-chain triglycerides when possible can be helpful.. Non-invasive management of chyluria relies on nutritional support, especially substitution of foods fat-rich by high protein, high fluid diets supplemented where possible with medium- chain triglycerides. Correction of the lymphatic defect can be effected through surgery, ...

Lymph is a clear-to-white fluid made of: ·Fluid from the intestines called chyle, which contains proteins and fats ·Red blood cells ·White blood cells, especially lymphocytes, the cells that attack bacteria in the blood. First of all, lymph is important - as important as blood or oxygen. While loss of the lymph system would not be as immediately fatal, it would be fatal nonetheless - in less than 72 hours. Lymph is blood plasma after it has carried its nutrients into the bodys tissues, dropped them off for the cells, picked up our metabolic wastes, and re-entered our water reclamation plant, which is the lymph system. Once it has passed through a series of nodes, where it is filtered and detoxified, lymph empties back into the heart where it once again becomes blood plasma. Keeping the lymph system active is therefore extremely important - the faster we detoxify, the healthier we are. Lymph drainage is always indicated in cases of lymphedema. These can arise following surgery, trauma, or ...
The valves of the heart were discovered by a physician of the Hippocratean school around the 4th century BC. However their function was not properly understood then. Because blood pools in the veins after death, arteries look empty. Ancient anatomists assumed they were filled with air and that they were for transport of air. Herophilus distinguished veins from arteries but thought that the pulse was a property of arteries themselves. Erasistratus observed that arteries that were cut during life bleed. He ascribed the fact to the phenomenon that air escaping from an artery is replaced with blood that entered by very small vessels between veins and arteries. Thus he apparently postulated capillaries but with reversed flow of blood. Galen in the 2nd century AD knew that blood vessels carry blood and identified venous (dark red) and arterial (brighter and thinner) blood, each with distinct and separate functions. Growth and energy were derived from venous blood created in the liver from chyle, while ...
The authors present a 71-year-old woman who had a right chylothorax after right upper lobectomy for lung cancer. 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). After visualization of the stomach and intestine, abnormal accumulation of the radiotracer was found initially around the right pulmonary hilum and then spread laterally in the upper pleural cavity, indicating chyle leakage in the region of the right pulmonary hilum. 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. The disruption site was ligated by video-assisted-thoracoscopic-surgery procedure with successful termination of the chyle leakage. Lymphoscintigraphy by oral administration of I-123 BMIPP is thought to be a
Chylopericardium is a rare clinical entity in which chylous fluid accumulates in the pericardial cavity. This entity results from thoracic duct disruption or obstruction, with both inadequate collateral drainage and reflux of chylous lymph through the lymphatics draining the heart and pericardium [3]. Secondary chylopericardium is frequently caused by disruption or obstruction of the thoracic duct as a result of thoracic or cardiac surgery, chest trauma, mediastinal neoplasms, mediastinal tuberculosis, or mediastinal radiotherapy, and it is occasionally a consequence of thrombosis of the subclavian vein.. Hasebrock was the first to describe the presence of 22.6 ml of chyle in the pericardial cavity [4], detected during the autopsy of a man who had died from asphyxia secondary to constriction and tracheal ulceration. The term "primary chylopericardium" was first used by Groves and Effler [5], who described a case of isolated accumulation of chyle in a 31-year-old woman who was found to have ...

Chylous ascites is a rare finding that was shown in a study by Press and colleagues to occur with an incidence of approximately 1 in 20,000 admissions to a large university-based hospital over a 20-year period [4]. However, it is widely believed that the incidence of chylous ascites has increased because of more aggressive cardiothoracic and abdominal surgery as well as the longer survival of patients with cancer [5]. Chylous ascites can be caused by any of 3 mechanisms: obstruction of the major lymphatic channels at the base of the mesentery or the cisterna chyli, which causes leakage of chyle from dilated mesenteric lymphatic vessels; direct leakage of chyle through a lymphoperitoneal fistula created by abnormal or injured retroperitoneal lymphatic vessels; or the exudation of chyle through the retroperitoneal megalymphatic vessels without a visible fistula or obstruction of the thoracic duct [6]. Chylous ascites is caused by an abdominal malignacy or cirrhosis in more than two-thirds of all ...

A chylothorax is a collection of fluid around the lungs that can occur after cardiac surgery. The fluid contains chyle, a milky fluid consisting of fat droplets. The standard treatment is to feed an infant with a specialized low fat formula for up to 6 weeks until the chest has time to heal. This formula is generally not well tolerated and mothers of our patients have expressed a desire to continue using breast milk. A few case reports have been published, but there have not been any studies to date looking at this. Data will be collected to include information about nutrition, weight gain, teaching needs, surgical, hospital, and discharge information ...

Ayurveda is grounded in the physics of the "five elements" i.e. Prithvi (earth), Jala (water), Agni (fire), Vaayu (air) and Akasha (ether). All of which compose the Universe, including the human body. Chyle or plasma (called rasa dhatu), blood (rakta dhatu), flesh (mamsa dhatu), fat (medha dhatu), bone (asthi dhatu), marrow (majja dhatu), and semen or female reproductive tissue (shukra dhatu) are held to be the seven primary constituent elements i.e saptadhatu of the body. Ayurveda deals elaborately with measures of healthful living during the entire span of life and its various phases. Ayurveda stresses a balance of three elemental energies which are vata (air & space - "wind"), pittha (fire & water - "bile") and kapha (water & earth - "phlegm"). According to Ayurveda, these three regulatory principles - Doshas are important for health, because when they are in a more balanced state, the body will function to its fullest, and when imbalanced, the body will be affected negatively in certain ...
Ayurveda is mainly focused in the three great terms viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha; called Tridosha. These are the great physiological terms so to understand this properly is to understand all about Ayurveda. The general meaning of Vata, Pitta and Kapha may be air, bile and sputum respectively but its not that. These terms in Ayurveda has a great significance.. Vata may be understood as nerve force, electro-motor, physical activity or that, which is responsible for motion. It is commonly called air. The root, va means to spread. In Western terms, it is the electricity setting the organism into motion, maintaining the equilibrium between Pitta and Kapha (inerts). Vata relates to the nerve-force. It is responsible for all movement in the mind and body. The movement of Vata even regulates the balance of Pitta and Kapha. Pitta relates to internal fire, bile, body heat, digestive enzymes, physio-chemical, biological, metabolic and endocrine systems. It is responsible for digesting the chyle into a ...

The cornea arch, also known as the old ring, is associated with hyperlipidemia in the case of 40 years of age, with familial hypercholesterolemia, but not strong in specificity. The change of fundus in hyperlipidemia is due to the deposition of large triglyceride rich large lipoprotein in the fundus arterioles, which is caused by light refraction.

The cisterna chyli (or cysterna chyli, and etymologically more correct, receptaculum chyli) is a dilated sac at the lower end of the thoracic duct in most mammals into which lymph from the intestinal trunk and two lumbar lymphatic trunks flow. It receives fatty chyle from the intestines and thus acts as a conduit for the lipid products of digestion. It is the most common drainage trunk of most of the bodys lymphatics. The cisterna chyli is a retro-peritoneal structure. In humans, it is located posterior to the abdominal aorta on the anterior aspect of the bodies of the first and second lumbar vertebrae (L1 and L2). There it forms the beginning of the primary lymph vessel, the thoracic duct, which transports lymph and chyle from the abdomen via the aortic opening of the diaphragm up to the junction of left subclavian vein and internal jugular veins. In dogs, it is located to the left and often ventral to the aorta; in cats it is left and dorsal; in guinea pigs it runs to the left and drains into ...

AbstractCHYLOTHORAX is produced by interruption of the thoracic duct above the aortic hiatus with fistulous communication into a thoracic space. Such a condition is serious and will prove fatal in a high percentage of cases unless adequate treatment is instituted. A review of medical literature suggests considerable variation in opinion as to clinical management of this complication.Etiology: Chylothorax is usually produced by direct trauma to the thoracic duct. Until recently the chief offenders have been penetrating wounds inflicted by bullet, steel fragment or knife. Fractures of the vertebral column and severe compression injuries of the thorax have resulted in interruption of the duct. Neoplasms involving the posterior mediastinum may be capable of producing chylothorax; care must be taken, however, to distinguish between chyle and a chyliform effusion. In recent years an increasing number of surgical procedures have been employed involving the posterior mediastinum; splanch-nicectomy,

Introduction. Chylous effusions, particularly chylothorax, are frequently reported in dogs and cats. Chyle is the term used to denote lymphatic fluid arising from the intestine and therefore containing a high quantity of fat. Chyle is normally transported to the venous system by a network of lymphatics in the mesentery (intestinal trunk). These lymphatics arborize in the cisterna chyli, a large dilated sac that lies adjacent to the aorta at L1-L4. The thoracic duct (TD) is the cranial continuation of the cisterna chyli and is generally said to begin between the crura of the diaphragm. In dogs (cats), the thoracic duct lies between the aorta and the azygous vein on the right side (left side) of the thorax and terminates in the venous system of the neck (left external jugular vein or jugulo-subclavian angle). Regardless of the etiology, chylothorax is a potentially devastating disease. Chylothorax results in both compromised respiration and debilitation because of loss of large amounts of ...
Surgical treatment is often recommended for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Open surgeries lead to severe surgical trauma, and minimally invasive surgeries cannot completely remove the hematoma. A new treatment protocol for traumatic iliopsoas hematoma by retroperitoneoscopic approach has been introduced. The goal of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of retroperitoneoscopic approach used to remove iliopsoas hematoma. Between January 2009 and July 2012, 13 patients were diagnosed of traumatic iliopsoas hematoma. Retroperitoneoscopic surgeries were performed on all patients to remove the hematomas after admission. The size of hematoma, VASA score and neurologic status were dynamic evaluated before and after surgery. Soft tissue damage and complications caused by retroperitoneoscopic approach also were recorded and evaluated. We performed retroperitoneoscopic surgery to remove traumatic iliopsoas hematoma successfully on 13 patients without complications. The mean procedure time was 52.5 ±

PURPOSE: Computer-assisted laparoscopic surgery (CALS) in children is increasingly used and has proven to be feasible and safe. However, its full potential remains unclear and clinical comparative studies hardly exist. The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate our experience with CALS for performing retroperitoneal nephrectomies in children when compared with controls undergoing open surgery in terms of safety, operative time, blood loss, opoid requirements, the duration of hospital stay and complications. CHILDREN AND METHODS: Computer-assisted retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy was undertaken in ten consecutive children, mean age at the time of surgery 6.4 (SD ± 4.5) years, and compared with a retrospectively collected control group of all other children, mean age 3.9 (SD ± 4.6) years, who underwent the same procedure by conventional open surgery between the years 2005 and 2009. The endpoint of the study was 1 month postoperatively. RESULTS: Nephrectomies were performed in all the ...

CASTOR OIL Explanation Castor oil is obtained from the seeds of the castor bean plant (Ricinus communis L., Euphorbiaceae). The oil consists of a triglyceride of fatty acids. The fatty acid content of castor oil consists of about 88-90% ricinoleic acid, 4-5% linoleic acid, 2-3% oleic acid, 1% palmitic acid, 1% stearic acid, about 1% dihydroxystearic acid, and trace amounts of other fatty acids (Binder et al. 1962). BIOLOGICAL DATA BIOCHEMICAL ASPECTS About 7% of the ricinoleic acid present in a 1 ml oral dose of castor oil given by stomach tube to fasted Sprague-Dawley rats was absorbed into the chyle within a 24-hour period. About 24% of the ricinoleic acid was absorbed if the substance was given to fed rats. Seven weanling rats were given a diet containing 20% castor oil, the animals gained weight on the diet, although at a lower rate than animals fed an olive oil supplemented diet. After eight weeks on the castor oil diet, the amount of ricinoleic acid in the animals fat pads was about 9.7%. ...

Chylotorax is a relatively uncommon and difficult to treat complication after esophagectomy for cancer. We report a case of a young adult male who underwent neoadjuvant chemoradiationtherapy followed by Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy for a squamous-cell carcinoma of the distal esophagus. During the postoperative course the patient presented recurrent episodes of hemodynamic instability mimicking cardiac tamponade, secondary to compression of the left pulmonary vein and the left atrium by a mediastinal chylocele. Mediastinal drainage and ligation of the cisterna chyli and the thoracic duct was successfully performed through a transhiatal approach.

Clinical manifestations usually develop months or years after infection, and many of the patients are asymptomatic even when they have microfilaremia. Lymphangitis and filarial abscesses occur with a greater degree of frequency than in W. bancrofti infections. If elephantiasis occurs, the swelling is normally restricted to the lower extremities below the knee. Sclerotic cordlike lymphatics and enlarged nodes in the arms and legs are common; urogenital involvement with chyluria does not occur. In disease caused by B. malayi, episodes of prolonged fever, adenolymphangitis, abscesses of affected lymph nodes, and local residual scarring occur quite frequently. Chronic lymphedema or elephantiasis, as seen in bancroftian filariasis, does not occur frequently.. Clinical Specimen: ...
PREVENTION:. In many cats, the underlying cause of chylothorax is never determined, and therefore, cannot be prevented.. Chylothorax can occur as a symptom of heart failure caused by heartworm disease. Discuss heartworm prevention with your veterinarian.. PROGNOSIS:. There is a good prognosis with treatment to stabilize breathing and for any underlying conditions.. Since the excess liquid irritates the heart and lungs, scar tissue may form. It will press on the lungs, causing breathing difficulty and long-term damage. Therefore, you must go to the veterinarian as soon as you notice signs.. ...

Among 2600 FB procedures, 434 (17%) were performed with the indication of recurrent or persistent pneumonia. There were 237 (54%) boys. Median age at presentation was 84 months, and median duration of symptoms was 9 months. FB led to specific diagnosis in 33% of the cases. The most common diseases diagnosed by FB were malacia disorders (n: 32, 7%), aspirated foreign body (n: 30, 7%), endobronchial tuberculosis (n: 20, 5%), congenital airway anomalies (n: 14, 3%), mucus plugs (n: 14, 3%), pulmonary haemosiderosis (n: 12, 3%) and middle lobe syndrome (n: 11, 3%). During FB, only 6% of the patients had minor complications such as transient hypoxia, stridor and tachycardia. ...
The clinical features of chylothorax depend on the rate of chyle accumulation in the pleural space as well as the concomitant effect of the etiology. The presentation of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) depends upon the type of lymphoma and the areas of involvement. Some NHLs behave indolently while others are very aggressive. Aggressive lymphomas present acutely or subacutely with a rapidly growing mass, systemic B symptoms (ie, fever, night sweats, weight loss), and/or elevated serum LDH and uric acid. Lymphomas with aggressive presentation include diffuse large B cell lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma, and precursor B and T lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma. Indolent lymphomas, like in our patient, are often insidious, presenting with slow growing lymphadenopathy, hepato-splenomegaly, or cytopenias. Lymphomas with indolent presentation include follicular lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, and splenic marginal zone lymphoma (10 ...

Introduction: Chylothorax is a rare, but serious complication after congenital heart surgery in neonates. Management of this condition has been hampered by poor understanding of pathophysiology and limited therapeutic options. Lymphatic imaging could help to diagnose and guide therapy.. Methods: A five week old infant developed chylothorax after Norwood operation for Hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Initially, chyloascites and bilateral chylothoraces occurred. Medical management with inotropes, supportive therapy and Octreotide infusions failed. Non-invasive near-infrared fluorescence lymphatic imaging (NIRFLI) at the bedside was used to determine whether thoracic duct ligation or pleurodesis would restore normal drainage. After an emergency IRB and FDA approvals, indocyanine green was injected intradermally (0.025 - 0.05 ml of 0.25 mg/ml solution) in the left and right feet as well as left hand.. Result: NIRFLI showed that lymph flow from the feet stopped at the level of both groins. From left ...
BACKGROUND: The two major life-threatening complications associated with laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy are sudden severe bleeding and intestinal injury. A combined technique-hand-assisted and retroperitoneoscopic (HARS)-reduces the risk of these life-threatening complications. In this study, we report on our experience from the first 75 consecutive HARS operations. METHODS: The data has been collected prospectively according to intention to treat and includes all consecutive donors operated with the HARS technique. Warm ischemia time, operating time, and blood loss were recorded. Complications, convalescence, and allograft outcome were followed postoperatively with a mean follow-up of 701 (range 60-1438) days. RESULTS: The mean operating time was 138 (range 85-260) minutes and the mean warm ischemia time 175 (85-510) seconds. The operative time was significantly longer in male donors. The mean bleeding was 176 (50-700) ml. There were no conversions to open surgery. Major complications ...

  • Chyle is transported via the intestinal lymphatics to the cisterna chyli (which is located in the retrocrural space at approximately the level of the L1/L2 vertebral body) and then ascends in the thoracic duct. (heartandcoeur.com)
  • Alternatively, sudden compression of the lipemic and engorged mesenteric lymphatics, adjacent nodes, and lower thoracic duct aggravated by deformations associated with stretching and tearing motions may also directly disrupt chyle containing lymphatics (6). (freethesaurus.com)
  • Binding of prothrombin to chyle chylomicrons: effects of temperatuure and calcium ions, and role of surface phospholipids. (lu.se)
  • The ability of chyle chylomicrons to bind prothrombin has been studied. (lu.se)
  • Rat chyle chylomicrons were incubated with human 125I-prothrombin and binding was examined by separating the chylomicrons from free 125-I-prothrombin by density-gradient ultracentrifugation, and by gel filtration on Sepharose CL-2B. (lu.se)
  • A significant binding of prothrombin to chyle chylomicrons occurred. (lu.se)
  • Bound prothrombin could not be removed from chyle chylomicrons by treatment with EDTA, suggesting that this binding is not a simple Ca2+ dependent association between prothrombin and chyle chylomicrons. (lu.se)
  • It is suggested that the binding of prothrombin to chyle chylomicrons is in part mediated by negatively charged phospholipids of the chylomicron surface, although a specific role of the PE could not be demonstrated. (lu.se)

  • The initial signs included anorexia, colic, kicking at belly, paddling of limbs in recumbency, frequent getting up and lying down which subsided after 2 days which might be attributed to stimulation of autonomic nervous system distended cranial loops of obstruction with chyle and fluids (Papadopoulos et al. (freethesaurus.com)
