Tóm tắt

Chylous fistula is a rare complication following renal surgery, especially partial nephrectomy due to renal cell cancer. A unified treatment guideline for this complication is currently unavailable. We report a clinical case of chylous fistula after laparoscopic partial nephrectomy due to renal cell cancer, seen on the 4th postoperative day (POD), which was successfully treated conservatively by octreotide and diet adjustments. We take this opportunity to review similar cases mentioned in the literature in order to contribute to the knowledge of symptoms, management and treatment of this complication.
