Abstract

The authors analysed the various enzymes in the lymph of the thoracic duct and the right lymphatic duct in a series of 15 dogs submitted to extracorporeal circulation, the experimentors noted a series of diffuse cellular lesions which involved transiently the main organs. This lesion seems only to occur at first: independent of the duration of the by-pass, probably due to hypoxia following the rapid and massive introduction of priming. It is concluded that lymph analysis is more revealing for knowledge of enzyme behaviour than blood analysis. A differential study of lymph in the right lymphatic duct and in the thoracic duct is surprisingly much less important.
