摘要

Postoperative chylothorax is sometimes difficult to be managed either by conventional therapies or by surgery. Herein, we report the experience of octreotide therapy for intractable postoperative chylothorax in two children (one was severe tetralogy of Fallot received Blalock-Taussing shunt, and the other was a single ventricle received bi-directional Glenn shunt) and review the literature on octreotide efficacy.
