We tested the hypothesis that the effective oncotic force that opposes fluid filtration across the microvessel wall is the local oncotic pressure difference across the endothelial surface glycocalyx and not the global difference between the plasma and tissue. In single frog mesenteric microvessels perfused and superfused with solutions containing 50 mg/ml albumin, the effective oncotic pressure exerted across the microvessel wall was not significantly different from that measured when the… CONTINUE READING
