Myogenic responses of isolated lymphatics: modulation by endothelium.


OBJECTIVE To characterize the effect of increases of intraluminal pressure on the spontaneous diameter oscillations of isolated lymphatics and on the maximum and minimum diameter, in the presence and absence of endothelium. METHODS Afferent lymphatics were isolated from rat iliac lymph nodes. After cannulation of both ends, lymphatics were equilibrated… (More)
