Chyle leak/fistula is a rare complication of oesophageal cancer surgery, usually consequent on an unintended breach of the thoracic duct, its tributaries or the cisterna chyli. For high volume persistent leaks, further surgery, either open or minimally invasive trans-thoracic, with a potentially significant risk of attendant morbidity. At this National Centre, our policy has evolved to using interventional radiology to define the lymphatic system and to target embolization or disruption. We report herein 3 exemplar cases which highlighted the clinical presentation, and technical aspects of its resolution.
