Lymphatic Vessels and Lymph Circulation Lymphatic vessels begin as blind-ended lymph capillaries in tissue spaces between cells. Interstitial fluid drains into lymphatic capillaries, thus forming lymph . Lymph capillaries merge to form larger vessels, called lymphatic vessels , which convey lymph into and out of structures called lymph nodes.

Lymphatic Vessels & Circulation Capillaries that begin as closed-ended tubes found in spaces between cells Combine to form lymphatic vessels resemble veins with thin walls & more valves Fluid flows through lymph nodes towards large veins above the heart lymph emptied into bloodstream

Lymphatic Capillaries Found throughout the body except in avascular tissue (cartilage, epidermis & cornea) Structure is designed to let tissue fluid in but not out anchoring filaments keep tube from collapsing under outside pressure overlapping endothelial cells open when tissue pressure is high (one-way valve)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
