A huge lymphocele following abdominal surgery presents with pressure symptoms affecting abdominal organs and must, therefore, be treated. Sites of extravasation were identified with a new perioperative diagnostic device (the SPY™ intraoperative imaging system), which makes fluorescent the dye indocyanine green administered to tissue. Afterwards, lymph ducts were successfully ligated.
