Summary

In this procedure, the provider incises the abdomen to drain a collection of lymph fluid from the space outside of the peritoneal cavity, a common complication from a traumatic injury or extensive abdominal surgery, in which fluid accumulates faster than it drains and becomes trapped. The provider opens tissues to allow the fluid to drain into the peritoneal cavity to eliminate pain from the enlarging mass and reduce the chance of infection.
