Abstract

Lymphatico-venous (L-V) anastomosis at the cardiac end of the stomach was found in 5 out of 19 dogs with severe lymphatic stress and hexamethonium in­jection. The significance of such a finding is discussed in relation to the genesis and rupture of oesophageal varices complicating portal hypertension.
