LYMPHATIC VESSELS IN HUMAN ALVEOLAR BONE

Author
  • J Barker

Abstract

There are large vessels within the trabecular spaces of human alveolar bone buccal to the maxillary first premolars. In form and fine structure the vessels are collecting lymphatics which originate as initial lymphatics within the periodontal membrane and extend through the buccal plate of bone. By contrast, present evidence suggests that such vessels do not exist in long bones.
