Lymphaticovenous communications have been studied by techniques of plastic corrosion models in rate and tracer studies in living dogs and at autopsy in man. There is evidence that there is a relationship between aeurologic control of lymphatic tone and those factors, such as obstruction of the major lymph channels, increased intralymphatic volume, abdominal pressure, ganglionic blocking agents, renal diseases, and accumulation of intracavital fluid, which increase the incidence of demonstration of lymphaticovenous communications. Although there are undoubtedly other factors which influence the function or demonstration of lymphaticovenous communications those which have been presented are some for which there is direct experimental evidence or strongly suggestive data. There is a need for further investigation to determine additional factors affecting these functions and to establish the precise mechanisms for stimulating function of the lymphaticovenous communications to improve transport of lymph to the circulation as an aid in alleviating symptoms associated with accumulation of fluid and protein in limits or organs.
