Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigated the lymph flow and other parameters of lymph microcirculation in vivo. The analysis of lymphatic functions in norm and at the topical application of N-nitro-L-arginin (L-NNA, 10-4M), dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO, 30%) was performed. We observed lymph microvessels of rat mesentery with diameter from 50 to 270 micrometers . The lymph flow velocity was determined by the biomicroscopic (V) and speckle-interferometrical (M1) methods. L-NNA and DMSO led to different effects on diameters of lymphatics. L-NNA as well as DMSO stimulated the phasic activity and lymph flow in microvessels of rat mesentery. We suggested that used vasoactive drugs stimulated lymph pumping by different ways.
