Pressure gradients and transport in the murine femur upon hindlimb suspension.

Abstract

Interstitial fluid flow (IFF) is important in a number of processes, including stimulation of cells and nutrient and waste transport. In bone, it arises from the vascular pressure gradient between the medullary cavity and the lymphatic drainage at the periosteal surface and is enhanced by mechanical loading events. However, little is known about the… (More)
