Lymphatic vessel of the large intestine especially the existence of the intra mucosal lymphatic vessel



Lymphatic vessel of the large intestine especially the existence of the intra mucosal lymphatic vessel



Journal of the Japan Society of Coloproctology 35(5): 509-514



Microlymphangiographic studies were performed to clarify the existence of intramucosal lymphatic vessels of the large intestine. Previous studies have not satisfactorily shown its correct morphology. Microlymphangiographic methods consisting of intraarterial injection of silver nitrate with india ink and of direct submucosal puncture injection of india ink were performed. Experimental materials were obtained from 25 dogs and 12 resected specimens from humans. Some authors feel that there are no lymphatic vessels in the intramucosal zone except the area nearly above the muscularis mucosae. Two horizontal lymphatic networks, which appear near the mucosal surface and above the muscularis mucosae in 4 dog specimens, were found. Findings of lymphatic vessels above the muscularis mucosae were observed in both materials from dogs and humans.
