  • CHYLOTHORAX COMPLICATING CORONARY-ARTERY BYPASS-GRAFTING JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY Smith, J. A., Goldstein, J., Oyer, P. E. 1994; 35 (4): 307-309

    Abstract:

    Chylothorax is a rare complication of coronary artery by-pass grafting. We present two patients who developed a left chylothorax at one week and 14 days post-coronary artery by-pass grafting. In both cases an internal mammary artery graft was harvested. Nonoperative therapy, which included adequate pleural drainage and a low fat diet, lead to successful resolution of the chylous leak in each instance.
