1. Pleural permeability may contribute to pleural fluid turnover. The transmesothelial resistance (R(TM)), is an established surrogate of mesothelial permeability. The aim of the present study was to compare the electrophysiological properties of costal and diaphragmatic parietal pleura. 2. Specimens of the parietal pleura were isolated from 12 adult sheep from the chest wall and the diaphragm. Electrophysiological measurements were conducted with the Ussing system. Specimens of the parietal… CONTINUE READING
