MetadataShow full item record
Lymphatic complications are uncommon after spinal surgery. Thoracic duct injury is a rare complication of scoliosis surgery. Intensive care staff must be alert about complications, because early diagnosis is essential for treatment. To increase awareness of the surgeon and the intensive care staff about such a rare postoperative complication, we report a 5-year- old girl patient who developed a thoracic duct injury after correction of scoliosis.
