Effect of acute venous hypertension on erythrocyte, leukocyte, and plasma protein extravasation in the dog hindlimb.

The effect of acute venous hypertension on the extravasation of plasma proteins, erythrocytes, and leukocytes into regional lymph was studied in the dog hindlimb. Although the lymph protein transport sharply rose with hindlimb phlebohypertension, capillary permeability was unchanged with retention in draining lymph of a normal proportion of large to small… CONTINUE READING
