PMID:  3741665     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An acute study was performed in dogs to test the feasibility of using another bodily fluid in place of saliva in patients with xerostomia. Chyle was routed from the thoracic duct to the oral cavity via a vein graft using the external jugular vein. While technically challenging, the vein conduit worked well in delivering chyle to the oral cavity.
