Change of the body fluid exchange and of the composition of metabolites in the hepatosplanchnic area in canine hemorrhagic and endotoxin or septic shock models were studied by investigating the qualitative and quantitative changes in thoracic duct lymph draining from abdominal organs. In the present study, it might be summarized that the changes in the flow rate and composition of thoracic duct lymph were put forward to much more directly and apparently indicate the degree of hepatosplanchnic cellular impairment in canine experimental shock than in the circulating blood.
