Abstract

Lymphatic leak is a well-documented complication following neck dissection surgeries. When conservative methods fail to control the leak, thoracic duct embolization becomes an option. Transabdominal access is the standard for this procedure; however, it is not always feasible. We discuss a technique of selective lymphatic vessel embolization utilizing retrograde transvenous access.
