Abstract

The effects of decreased RBF on renal lymph formation and TP were investigated during experimentally maintained IRVP. It was found that this procedure is effective in maintaining TP and LCP at or above control even in the absence of RBF. While lymph PAH and creatinine concentrations were unchanged under these circumstances, lymph protein concentration was increased. It is concluded that IRVP is a major factor determining lymph and tissue pressure and that increases above control may be due to a combination of physical factors and tissue ischemia.
