Dilated Thoracic Duct Terminal and Chyle Withdrawal from a Central Venous Port in Innominate Vein Stenosis
Chyle withdrawal from a central venous port in innominate vein stenosis
Central vein stenosis is a rare complication that occurs after central venous port placement. We report a case of chyle withdrawal from a central venous port in a patient receiving chemotherapy for stage IV rectal cancer. Dilated thoracic duct terminal and innominate vein stenosis both were clearly shown in the angiography results, and innominate vein stenosis was resolved by performing percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
