This study investigates the fluid flow through tissues where lymphatic drainage occurs. Lymphatic drainage requires the use of two valve systems, primary and secondary. Primary valves are located in the initial lymphatics. Overlapping endothelial cells around the circumferential lining of lymphatic capillaries are presumed to act as a unidirectional valve system. Secondary valves are located in the lumen of the collecting lymphatics and act as another unidirectional valve system; these are well… Expand
