Author
  • WL Olszewski

Abstract

Methods used for collection and measurement of physiological parameters of peripheral lymph and interstitial fluid in man have been described, basing on the experience of lymphological groups from Warsaw and Oslo and on data from the relevant literature. The review consists of description of methods for chronic cannulation of leg lymphatics, collection of lymph from skin lymphatic vessels, measurement of peripheral lymph flow, lymph hydrostatic and oncotic pressures, collection of interstitial fluid with the capsular, liquid-paraffin cavity, wick and skin window methods, interstitial fluid hydrostatic and oncotic pressure measurement.
