Lymph Flow Transient Following Elevation of Venous Pressure in the Dog’s Hind Paw

Steady-state lymph flows have been measured in numerous organs (1,2,6,8,9,10,11,12) for both normal and altered filtration pressure*. The steady-state measurement of lymph flow are very useful for measuring or calculating PC, PT, ЛL and the imbalance in Starling forces across the capillary membrane (8,9); however, this type of lymph flow measurement does not yield any information as to the mechanisms responsible for lymphatic propulsion.
