Abstract

Cannulation of peripheral lymphatics in man offers possibilities qf a wide range of studies of the human tissue fluid under various conditions. Studies of the cell content of peripheral lymph have provided new information about the lymphocyte kinetics in lymphomas (3, 4). The distribution of drugs (1), irnmunoglobulins and complement (5) between blood and lymph has yielded valuable data.

The method used for cannulation has been described previously (2). Recently the method has been modified. Lymph cannulation is now performed in direct connection with lymphography without extra surgical intervention for cannulation. This allows us to collect lymph for some days in a large group of patients. It is assumed that this modification might be of interest to other centers where lymphography is performed.
