Abstract

We describe the case of a 23 year old man who had undergone laparoscopic surgery in order to remove a residual mass secondary to a testicular embryonal carcinoma. 15 days after he attended the emergency department complaining about abdominal bloating and copious drainage via the two laparoscopic surgery incisions. Biochemical analysis was consistent with chylous ascites. Although this is uncommon, it is well known that there is more likely to develop chylous ascites after oncologic surgery if retroperitoneal lymph nodes dissection is performed1. We decide to start with conservative treatment (dietary modifications) but, as it is not enough, then we decide stop any oral intake and treat him with parenteral nutrition, achieving then total resolution of the ascites.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 March 2015.
All research outputs
#4,099,959
of 4,901,725 outputs
Outputs from Nutricion Hospitalaria
#235
of 509 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#121,275
of 145,285 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nutricion Hospitalaria
#12
of 16 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,901,725 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 509 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 145,285 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 16 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
