The fine structures of the tissue channels and the lymphatics are described. The two systems form part of the whole blood vascular-tissue channel-lymphatic complex. The fine functioning of this is very dependent on the structures of its individual components. In brief, the tissue-lymphatic system is a leaky swamp through which material flows due to the vagaries of adjacent pressure changes. It enters the lymphatics via holes in their walls: it is retained in them when the holes are closed.
