A simplified version of the model of interstitial transport developed earlier (D. G. Taylor, J. L. Bert, and B. D. Bowen, 1990, Microvasc. Res. 39, 253-278) is used to investigate microvascular exchange of fluid and a single "aggregate" plasma protein species in mesenteric tissue. The interstitium is approximated by a rigid, rectangular, porous slab displaying two fluid pathways, only one of which is available to plasma proteins. The model is used to explore the effects of the interstitial… CONTINUE READING
