In this procedure, the provider examines the inside of the abdomen through a laparoscope, a tubular instrument with a light source and camera. The provider opens up tissues to allow a lymphocele, a collection of trapped fluid, to drain into the peritoneal cavity to eliminate pain and reduce the chance of infection. Lymphoceles occur in areas of damaged tissue following abdominal trauma or extensive abdominal surgery.
