OBJECTIVE: To explore the treatment strategies of chylous leakage after dissection of central lymph nodes in thyroid cancer.
METHODS: Patients with chylous leakage after dissection of central lymph nodes in thyroid cancer were recruited in this study. All participants adopted a conservative treatment method of external fixation of neck brace + cotton ball packing and compression bandage + adequate negative pressure drainage and assisted low-fat diet.
RESULTS: A total of two patients were included in this study. The results showed that the drainage rate of these two patients was reduced to less than 10 ml after 1-2 days of drainage. The maintenance treatment was continued for 10 days. The drainage volume of the patient did not increase during the three days after returning to normal diet. There was no recurrence of posterior lymphatic leakage.
CONCLUSION: External fixation of neck brace + cotton ball packing and compression bandage + adequate negative pressure drainage is important for the treatment of mild to moderate chylotrhea after thyroid cancer surgery which was of clinical application.
