Isolated primary chylopericardium. (1/245)

A 16-year-old man was found to have an enlarged cardiac silhouette. Primary chylopericardium was diagnosed when pericardiocentesis yielded the characteristic milky-white fluid. The thoracic duct was easily identified by giving milk and butter and an injection of ethylene blue immediately before the operation. Intraoperative thoracic ductography showed no abnormal findings. Mass ligation of the thoracic duct above the diaphragm and partial pericardiectomy were successfully performed through a right thoracotomy approach. In addition, many of the lymphatics were ligated above the diaphragm. The right thoracotomy approach was a useful method for resection and ligation of the thoracic duct just above the diaphragm. Follow-up showed no accumulation of pericardial fluid or pleural effusion.  (+info)

Lymph and pulmonary response to isobaric reduction in plasma oncotic pressure in baboons. (2/245)

Plasma colloid osmotic pressure was reduced by 76% (from 19.6 +/- 0.6 to 4.7 +/- 1.5 mm Hg) in five baboons while pulmonary capillary hydrostatic pressure was maintained at a normal level. This resulted in fluid retention, weight gain, peripheral edema and ascites, but no pulmonary edema. Thoracic duct lymph flow increased 6-fold and pulmonary lymph flow 7-fold. Thoracic duct lymph had a lower colloid osmotic pressure (2.0 +/- 0.7 mm Hg) than plasma (4.7 +/- 1.5 mm Hg), whereas the colloid osmotic pressure of pulmonary lymph (4.7 +/- 0.7 mm Hg) was the same as that of plasma. The lymph-plasma ratio for albumin fell in thoracic duct lymph but remained unchanged in pulmonary lymph. The difference between plasma colloid osmotic pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure decreased from 15.3 +/- 1.9 to -0.7 +/- 2.9 mm Hg. Despite this increase in filtration force, the lungs were protected from edema formation by a decrease of 11 mm Hg in pulmonary interstitial colloid osmotic pressure and a 7-fold increase in lymph flow.  (+info)

Identical T cell clones are located within the mouse gut epithelium and lamina propia and circulate in the thoracic duct lymph. (3/245)

Murine gut intraepithelial (IEL) T cell receptor (TCR)-alpha/beta lymphocytes bearing CD8alpha/13 or CD8alpha/alpha coreceptors have been shown previously to express different oligoclonal TCR beta chain repertoires in the same mouse, in agreement with other evidence indicating that these two populations belong to different ontogenic lineages, with only CD8alpha/beta+ IELs being fully thymus dependent. CD8alpha/beta+, but not CD8alpha/alpha+, T lymphocytes are also present in the lamina propria. Here, we show that CD8alpha/beta+ lymphocytes from the lamina propria and the epithelium are both oligoclonal, and that they share the same TCR-beta clonotypes in the same mouse, as is also the case for CD4alpha T cells. Furthermore, identical T cell clones were detected among CD8alpha/beta IELs and CD8alpha/beta+ blasts circulating into the thoracic duct (TD) lymph of the same mouse, whereas TD small lymphocytes are polyclonal. These findings must be considered in light of previous observations showing that T blasts, but not small T lymphocytes, circulating in the TD lymph have the capacity of homing into the gut epithelium and lamina propria. These combined observations have interesting implications for our understanding of the recirculation of gut thymus-dependent lymphocytes and their precursors, and of the events leading up to the selection of their restricted TCR repertoire.  (+info)

Computer analysis of defined populations of lymphocytes irradiated in vitro. II. Analysis of thymus-dependent versus bone marrow-dependent cells. (4/245)

Three uniform populations of T and B cells exposed to varying amounts of x-irradiation are examined utilizing computer-assisted morphometric analysis. These populations are: thoracic duct lymphocytes (TDL) from congenitally athymic (nude) mice (B cells); TDL from CBA mice treated with anti-Ig plus complement (T cells); and computer-selected untreated T cells from CBA TDL. Irradiated B cells show a more even dispersion of the nuclear chromatin and a dose-dependent increase in relative nuclear area beginning with the lowest dose evaluated (50 rads); no significan change in total optical density (OD) is demonstrable over the dose range evaluated (0 to 2000 rads). Anti-Ig-treated irradiated T cells demonstrate an initial shift toward lower OD values as a function of dose followed by a marked rise of OD values at 2000 rads, where numerous densely staining Feulgen-positive aggregates are identified. The relative nuclear area of this cell population also shows a biphasic response to radiation injury with an initial increase at the lower dose levels followed by a progressive decline to approximate control levels at 2000 rads. This effect is mirrored by the alteration in total OD which, after a decrease at low dose levels, approximates control values at 2000 rads. The computer-selected T cells show little change in OD values at the low-dose levels but show a marked increase in the more densely staining Feulgen-positive material following 2000 rads. This population reveals no apparent change in either relative nuclear area or total OD as a function of dose. Thus, untreated computer-selected T cells exhibit remarkably little evidence, morphologically, of radiation injury of doses associated with pronounced alterations on the part of B cells. In addition, treatment of a mixed cell population (CBA TDL) with anti-Ig plus complement to remove the B cells appears to alter the response of the residual T cells to radiation injury. These results, in conjunction with recent evidence to support the concept that T cells possess surface Ig, suggest that an Ig-anti-Ig interaction may alter the radiosensitivity of T cells.  (+info)

Myasthenia gravis: studies on HL-A antigens and lymphocyte subpopulations in patients with myasthenia gravis. (5/245)

Thirth-three patient with a clinical diagnosis of myasthenia gravis were tissue-typed for HL-A antigens. In agreement with earlier reports a significant increase in antigens HL-A1 and HL-A8 were found in this material. Two of the patients were treated with chronic thoracic duct drainage. Proportions of T and B lymphocytes in lymph and peripheral blood were estimated in these patients. In the lymph an initial decrease in the proportion of T cells occurred, which was accompanied by a subsequent increase in the proportion of B cells. Towards the end of the chronic drainage period this effect was reversed. A slightly different picture occurred in blood lymphocytes. Initially, there was an increase in both T and B cells, followed by a decrease in T-cells numbers in one patient, whereas in the second patient the proportion of T cells decreased from the onset of drainage while the proportion of B cells steadily increased. These studies showed that available markers for determination of T ANd B cells were useful for studies of lymphocyte subpopulations in blood and lymph. Lmyphocytes from the thoracic duct were also tested for their reactivity to various mitogens specific for either T or B cells. The B-cell mitogens which were used were dextran sulphate, lipopolysaccharide, purified protein derivative, as well as rabbit anti-human beta2-microglobulin serum. The T-cell mitogens investigated were concanavalin A and phytohaemagglutinin. No significant differences in the responsiveness of thoracic duct lymphocytes compared to normal peripheral blood lymphocytes were found.  (+info)

Lymphocutaneous fistula as a long-term complication of multiple central venous catheter placement. (6/245)

We report a case of a lymphocutaneous fistula in a 19-month-old boy who had been a premature neonate, born in the 23rd week of gestation. The fistula, an apparent complication of central venous line placement during the patient's first 5 months of life, was composed of a distinct lymphatic vessel bundle in the right supraclavicular region, with its exit point at the posterior aspect of the right shoulder. The drainage ceased immediately after resection and repair of a 1-cm obstruction in the superior vena cava.  (+info)

In vitro response of bovine thoracic duct lymphocyte to phytohaemagglutinin following adult thymectomy. (7/245)

The effect of adult thymectomy on the thoracic duct lymphocyte population of yearling calves has been investigated. Four to 6 weeks after thymectomy animals showed significantly reduced thoracic duct lymphocyte concentrations when compared to non-thymectomized controls. In addition, phytohaemagglutinin responsiveness of thoracic duct lymphocytes, measured by (3H) thymidine uptake, was significantly decreased following adult thymectomy. However, this decreased response to PHA was not accompanied by a change in spontaneous isotope incorporation. It is concluded that adult thymectomy in the bovine probably leads to a reduction in the number of PHA responsive T cells in the thoracic duct lymph.  (+info)

Fatal bilateral chylothorax in mice lacking the integrin alpha9beta1. (8/245)

Members of the integrin family of adhesion receptors mediate both cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions and have been shown to play vital roles in embryonic development, wound healing, metastasis, and other biological processes. The integrin alpha9beta1 is a receptor for the extracellular matrix proteins osteopontin and tenacsin C and the cell surface immunoglobulin vascular cell adhesion molecule-1. This receptor is widely expressed in smooth muscle, hepatocytes, and some epithelia. To examine the in vivo function of alpha9beta1, we have generated mice lacking expression of the alpha9 subunit. Mice homozygous for a null mutation in the alpha9 subunit gene appear normal at birth but develop respiratory failure and die between 6 and 12 days of age. The respiratory failure is caused by an accumulation of large volumes of pleural fluid which is rich in triglyceride, cholesterol, and lymphocytes. alpha9(-/-) mice also develop edema and lymphocytic infiltration in the chest wall that appears to originate around lymphatics. alpha9 protein is transiently expressed in the developing thoracic duct at embryonic day 14, but expression is rapidly lost during later stages of development. Our results suggest that the alpha9 integrin is required for the normal development of the lymphatic system, including the thoracic duct, and that alpha9 deficiency could be one cause of congenital chylothorax.  (+info)

Ultrasonography of the cisterna chyli has been used in humans to diagnose increased lymphatic flow or lymph flow obstruction and to guide percutaneous embolization of the thoracic duct via the cisterna chyli. The aim of this study was to describe the ultrasonographic characteristics of the dorsal portion of cisterna chyli in dogs and cats with chylous ascites or chylothorax and in a group of healthy dogs and cats. The aorta and the cranial mesenteric artery were used as anatomic landmarks. Ultrasonography was performed before and 2 h after a fatty meal in healthy dogs and cats. The visualized structure was confirmed to be a dilated cisterna chyli at necropsy in a dog with chylous ascites. The confirmed or presumed cisterna chyli was consistently detected using ultrasonography in nonfasted healthy animals and clinically affected animals and appeared as an anechoic tubular structure, without detectable flow, at the right dorsolateral aspect of the aorta. It had a similar ultrasonographic ...
The cisterna chyli (or cysterna chyli, and etymologically more correct, receptaculum chyli) is a dilated sac at the lower end of the thoracic duct in most mammals into which lymph from the intestinal trunk and two lumbar lymphatic trunks flow. It receives fatty chyle from the intestines and thus acts as a conduit for the lipid products of digestion. It is the most common drainage trunk of most of the bodys lymphatics. The cisterna chyli is a retro-peritoneal structure. In humans, it is located posterior to the abdominal aorta on the anterior aspect of the bodies of the first and second lumbar vertebrae (L1 and L2). There it forms the beginning of the primary lymph vessel, the thoracic duct, which transports lymph and chyle from the abdomen via the aortic opening of the diaphragm up to the junction of left subclavian vein and internal jugular veins. In dogs, it is located to the left and often ventral to the aorta; in cats it is left and dorsal; in guinea pigs it runs to the left and drains into ...

Rat bone marrow is deficient in immunologically competent cells when compared with the peripheral pool of circulating small lymphocytes. However, circulating lymphocytes capable of initiating a lethal graft vs. host reaction can develop from myeloid precursors. In adult rats inoculated at birth with parental strain bone marrow cells, the thoracic duct lymph contains cells having the immunological capability of the marrow donor. The evidence suggests that immunologically competent lymphocytes derive from cells normally resident in bone marrow and probably not from precursors in the peripheral lymphocyte pool.. ...
The thoracic duct cysts located in the supraclavicular region are very rare masses, the etiology of which is not completely known. This article presents the clinical follow-up of a 35-year-old male patient diagnosed with throracic duct cyst situated in the left supraclavicular region and the patients condition is discussed in line with literature. The patient admitted to our clinic with a complaint of a mass in the left supraclavicular region that had appeared six months ago and that had been increasingly growing. A cyst excision under general anesthesia was performed to the patient who was pre-diagnosed with thoracic duct cyst following the radiological evaluation and the needle aspiration biopsy. There were no complications or a recurrence during the six months of postoperative follow-up. ...

A one-step separation procedure is described for both depleting and obtaining in pure form Fc receptor (FcRL), C3 receptor (CRL) and surface immunoglobulin bearing (IgL) lymphocytes from rat lymphoid populations. The method is a modification of the Bӧyum (1968) technique for separating lymphocytes from whole blood by sedimentation on Ficoll/Isopaque, and is based on the fact that when a lymphocyte forms a rosette with sensitized erythrocytes it will sediment with the red cells rather than float with the non-rosetting lymphocytes. The technique is , 99.5% efficient at depleting thoracic duct lymphocytes (TDL) of FcRL, CRL and IgL and these subpopulations can be recovered 93-98% pure. The total recovery of lymphocytes applied is usually , 90% and the separated lymphocytes are , 95% viable. This technique allowed the cellular distribution of Fc receptors, C3 receptors and surface Ig to be determined. It was found that (a) Almost all CRL carry surface Ig, although a very small sub-population of ...

Lymphatic pump treatment (LPT) is used as a lymph enhancing therapy to treat edema. In animals, LPT enhanced lymphatic flow, released leukocytes and inflammatory mediators into lymph, and inhibited pulmonary tumor formation. Therefore, we hypothesized the administration of LPT would enhance immunity and inhibit primary breast tumor growth. Rats were subcutaneously injected with MTLn3 and divided into MTLn3, MTLn3+Sham-LPT and MTLn3+LTP group. Sham group received light touch under anesthesia and LPT group received treatment under anesthesia. There were no changes in tumor growth between groups. Administration of Sham-LPT resulted in an increase in tumor-adjacent lymph node weight. Collectively, our data suggests LPT did not enhance primary tumor growth and may also protect against the pathogenesis exhibited by sham-LPT.

Introduction. Chylous effusions, particularly chylothorax, are frequently reported in dogs and cats. Chyle is the term used to denote lymphatic fluid arising from the intestine and therefore containing a high quantity of fat. Chyle is normally transported to the venous system by a network of lymphatics in the mesentery (intestinal trunk). These lymphatics arborize in the cisterna chyli, a large dilated sac that lies adjacent to the aorta at L1-L4. The thoracic duct (TD) is the cranial continuation of the cisterna chyli and is generally said to begin between the crura of the diaphragm. In dogs (cats), the thoracic duct lies between the aorta and the azygous vein on the right side (left side) of the thorax and terminates in the venous system of the neck (left external jugular vein or jugulo-subclavian angle). Regardless of the etiology, chylothorax is a potentially devastating disease. Chylothorax results in both compromised respiration and debilitation because of loss of large amounts of ...
There are also initial lymphatics (called lacteals) and collectors in the intestinal tract and the other organs. The collectors mostly go to the largest lymph trunk in the body, the thoracic duct. The thoracic duct passes through the diaphragm, up the body to the supraclavicular nodes. There the lymph is returned to the bloodstream through a connection with the subclavian vein. Along the way from the abdomen, the lymph is filtered by numerous nodes. The thoracic duct carries not only the lymph from the various organs but also lymph from both legs, the lower trunk of the body, and the upper left half of the body, including left arm and left side of the head. A problem with the abdominal lymphatics or with the thoracic duct can have much more serious consequences than lymphedema of the limb. It can lead to conditions of chylous reflux (the backflow of lymphatic fluid from the intestines to other areas of the body) and protein-losing enteropathy (PLE). In PLE instead of plasma proteins being ...
Jean Pecquet (9 May 1622, Dieppe, Seine-Maritime - 26 February 1674) was a French scientist. He studied the expansion of air, wrote on psychology, and is also known for investigating the thoracic duct. Furthermore, he studied the nature of vision. He studied medicine at Montpelier, where he made the important discovery of the course of the lacteal vessels, including the receptaculum chyli, or reservoir of Pecquet, as it is sometimes called, and the termination of the principal lacteal vessel, the thoracic duct, into the left subclavian vein. He dissected the eye and measured its dimensions. Contrary to Edme Mariotte, he maintained that the retina, not the choroid, was the principal organ of vision. He wrote: Experimenta Nova Anatomica (Paris, 1651; English translation, as New Anatomical Experiments, 1653) De Circulatione Sanguinis et Chyli Motu (1653) De Thoracicis Lacteis (1653) Pecquet, cistern of, reservoir of - The receptaculum chyli.

Description: Blood lymphocyte numbers, essential for the development of efficient immune responses, are maintained by recirculation through secondary lymphoid organs. We show that lymphocyte trafficking is altered by the lysophospholipid sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and by a phosphoryl metabolite of the immunosuppressive agent FTY720. Both species were high-affinity agonists of at least four of the five S1P receptors. These agonists produce lymphopenia in blood and thoracic duct lymph by sequestration of lymphocytes in lymph nodes, but not spleen. S1P receptor agonists induced emptying of lymphoid sinuses by retention of lymphocytes on the abluminal side of sinus-lining endothelium and inhibition of egress into lymph. Inhibition of lymphocyte recirculation by activation of S1P receptors may result in therapeutically useful immunosuppression. ...
Two previous studies provide additional support for physiologic apoptosis of SED epithelial cells. In the first, Huang et al. (50) demonstrated in uninfected rats the presence of CD4−/OX41− DCs containing apoptotic bodies and cytokeratin+ inclusions in the lamina propria and T cell zones of mesenteric lymph nodes. They also showed that DCs contain epithelial cell-derived, nonspecific esterase in the basal layer and T cell zones of PPs. The OX41− DC subset is a weak inducer of T cell proliferation and constitutively migrates from the intestine to mesenteric lymph nodes, as evidenced by the presence of large numbers of these cells in the thoracic duct lymph after mesenteric lymph node adenectomy (51). In the second, Vezys et al. (52) demonstrated that expression of a nonsecreted form of OVA in intestinal epithelial cells results in OVA-specific CD8+ T cell unresponsiveness. OVA-specific, OT-1 T cell receptor-transgenic T cells transferred into OVA-expressing mice expanded first in PPs and ...
Horse anti-human thoracic duct lymphocyte globulin (ATDLG) has been used successfully for the treatment of severe aplastic anemia, although not all lots have comparable efficacy. We have characterized the antibody specificities contained in one lot of Swiss ATDLG found to provide a response rate of 69% and another lot that provided only a 31% response rate. Antibody specificities were analyzed quantitatively by competitive inhibition assays with the use of a panel of fluorescein-conjugated murine monoclonal antibodies that recognize T cell antigens, common leukocyte antigens, and la-like antigens. Although there was wide variation in the amounts of individual antibody specificities within each lot, the effective lot of ATDLG contained an average of 2 1/2 times as much of each antibody specificity as the less effective lot. There were only two antibody specificities that differed remarkably from this pattern; and these deviations did not appear sufficient to account for the variation in ATDLG efficacy.
AbstractCHYLOTHORAX is produced by interruption of the thoracic duct above the aortic hiatus with fistulous communication into a thoracic space. Such a condition is serious and will prove fatal in a high percentage of cases unless adequate treatment is instituted. A review of medical literature suggests considerable variation in opinion as to clinical management of this complication.Etiology: Chylothorax is usually produced by direct trauma to the thoracic duct. Until recently the chief offenders have been penetrating wounds inflicted by bullet, steel fragment or knife. Fractures of the vertebral column and severe compression injuries of the thorax have resulted in interruption of the duct. Neoplasms involving the posterior mediastinum may be capable of producing chylothorax; care must be taken, however, to distinguish between chyle and a chyliform effusion. In recent years an increasing number of surgical procedures have been employed involving the posterior mediastinum; splanch-nicectomy,

Each drop of semen represents a concentrate of lecithin, hormones, minerals and vitamins equal to 60 drops of blood. Hence, the loss of this fluid drains the blood of its best elements. Seminal fluid is potential nerve and brain nutriment and when not wasted of lost through involuntary emission, it is absorbed by lymphatics which line the seminal vesicles and carried to the recepaculum chyli, from where it ascends via the thoracic duct to the left subclavian vein prior to its entrance to the heart, and in this way lymphatically resorbed seminal fluuid enters the circulation. The conserved lecithin is then carried by the blood to nerve and brain cells, which require it for their nourishment and vital activity. FOr this reason, sexual losses, voluntarily or involunarily, rob the nerves and brain of nourishment; and, if they are excessive, lead to nervous and mental diseases. Since ancient times, it was known to physicians that the gonads or sex glands manufacture a vital substance which, if ...
Chylothorax refers to the presence of lymphatic fluid in the pleural space secondary to leakage from the thoracic duct or one of its main tributaries. In 1875, H.
Lymph is a fluid that is formed by part of the constituents of blood filtering out of the blood capillaries into the spaces between each cell (the interstitium). In order to return to the heart, the flow of lymph from the interstitial spaces are reabsorbed into the feather-fine lymphagions into the lymphatic capillaries into the pre-collectors to the collectors, nodes, ducts and trunks. The cysterna chili (at T12) and thoracic duct (crosses the midline at T4-T6) represent the terminal lymphatic pathways that eventually join the major venous circulation just before reaching the heart. As in any active waterway, the flow of lymph is directed by pumps and valves to prevent a backflow. This is mediated by contracting muscle fibers in the lymphangions at the pulse rate of 5-8/minute at rest. This rate increases during excercise. These lymphangions consist of 2-3 layers of spiral muscle and one way valves. They producing peristaltic waves of contraction mediated by the autonomic nervous system. ...
Antigen is transferred to dendritic cells and B and T cells which underly the M cells.

Steady-state dendritic cells (DCs) migrating in the lymph from the intestine induce tolerance to harmless intestinal antigens, preventing inflammatory responses. To determine if such DCs are inherently tolerogenic we collected intestinal lymph DCs (L-DCs) by cannulation of the thoracic duct of rats after mesenteric lymphadenectomy, and examined their capacity to activate naive CD4+ lymphocytes in an allogeneic mixed leucocyte reaction. L-DCs stimulated strong proliferative responses, induced secretion of inflammatory cytokines including interferon-gamma, and induced FoxP3-positive lymphocytes to divide. To determine if the activated CD4+ T cells had been tolerized, they were rested and restimulated with irradiated splenocytes. The restimulated CD4+ T cells again proliferated and secreted inflammatory cytokines. These data demonstrate that the DCs, which migrate from the intestine in the steady state, are paradoxically able to induce strong inflammatory responses from naive T cells, despite their ...
In his ground breaking research Dr. Samuel West discovered the importance of activating the lymphatic system. He found that trapped proteins in the lymph system produces conditions that cause loss of energy, disease and death at the cellular level. He has had outstanding results by simply getting people to pump out the toxins the garbage disposal system (our lymph system) with some simple and gentle movements. This discovery is so simple that many actually discard it as being to simple or easy to be of any value. However the results that people who did these exercises several times if possible per day are sometimes close to miraculous.. 1. Stretching the arms to both sides then move your ARMS up while breathing in (through the nose) and at the same time make circles with your HANDS (deep breath from the lungs not the stomach, the expansion of the lungs squeezes the thoracic duct and creates more flow).

Bringing the best of both worlds together with Ceramides and Liposomes to help hydrate and nourish your skin. Skin ceramides make up 35-40% of the lipids in the extracellular cement that binds together protective cells in the outermost skin layer, the stratum corneum. Loss of skin ceramides renders aging skin permeable to moisture, leaving skin dry, rough, and itchy. Ceramide loss is also a major contributor to wrinkles.
figure taken from the reference below). Murein means peptidoglycan cell wall and the cytoplasm denotes the inside of the cell. In this scenario, the double-membraned proto-bacteria (which has spend the last half-a-billion years or so evolving a well adjusted double membrane system) suddenly looses the outer membrane. A very simple genetic change would lead to a massively overgrown cell wall, which would rip the outer membrane away. The cell looses all its outer membrane porins, and signal systems, but in return gains a highly protective cell wall, which potentially allows it to survive in different niches. How these aspects are lost genetically is another matter, and the paper rather hand-waves away by saying that unused genes tend to get lost eventually. Which is true in bacteria, they have such a small genome they dont want it getting filled up with unnecessary genes, but I have a feeling genes tend to leave something behind. Even so, the question of where the now-unnecessary genes go is ...

I recently ran into an interesting piece of malware that was downloaded on a victims computer. I thought it was TDL/TDSS or maybe a new version of it as it had same components as TDL4 bootkit with a functionality of a mass scale PPC (pay-per-click) fraud. TDL had this functionality too and it is most likely spread by the same Russian-speaking gangs using the Blackhole exploit kit.

Chylopericardium is a rare clinical entity in which chylous fluid accumulates in the pericardial cavity. This entity results from thoracic duct disruption or obstruction, with both inadequate collateral drainage and reflux of chylous lymph through the lymphatics draining the heart and pericardium [3]. Secondary chylopericardium is frequently caused by disruption or obstruction of the thoracic duct as a result of thoracic or cardiac surgery, chest trauma, mediastinal neoplasms, mediastinal tuberculosis, or mediastinal radiotherapy, and it is occasionally a consequence of thrombosis of the subclavian vein.. Hasebrock was the first to describe the presence of 22.6 ml of chyle in the pericardial cavity [4], detected during the autopsy of a man who had died from asphyxia secondary to constriction and tracheal ulceration. The term primary chylopericardium was first used by Groves and Effler [5], who described a case of isolated accumulation of chyle in a 31-year-old woman who was found to have ...
Chylous ascites is a rare finding that was shown in a study by Press and colleagues to occur with an incidence of approximately 1 in 20,000 admissions to a large university-based hospital over a 20-year period [4]. However, it is widely believed that the incidence of chylous ascites has increased because of more aggressive cardiothoracic and abdominal surgery as well as the longer survival of patients with cancer [5]. Chylous ascites can be caused by any of 3 mechanisms: obstruction of the major lymphatic channels at the base of the mesentery or the cisterna chyli, which causes leakage of chyle from dilated mesenteric lymphatic vessels; direct leakage of chyle through a lymphoperitoneal fistula created by abnormal or injured retroperitoneal lymphatic vessels; or the exudation of chyle through the retroperitoneal megalymphatic vessels without a visible fistula or obstruction of the thoracic duct [6]. Chylous ascites is caused by an abdominal malignacy or cirrhosis in more than two-thirds of all ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Lipoprotein distribution in sheep lung lymph. AU - Cross, Carroll E. AU - Forte, T. M.. AU - Gunther, R. A.. AU - Kramer, G. C.. PY - 1983. Y1 - 1983. N2 - The composition of lymph draining the sheep caudal mediastinal lymph node is believed to reflect the composition of lung interstitial fluid. Although long-term lymph fistulas have been extensively utilized in studies related to lung microvascular fluid and protein flux, attention has thus far not been focused on lipoproteins as they might appear in lung interstitial space. We therefore characterized the lipoprotein distributions and measured triglyceride and cholesterol concentrations of lung lymph and plasma in nine unanesthetized sheep with long-term embedded instrumentation. We also measured triglyceride and cholesterol concentrations in prefemoral and thoracic duct lymph. The plasma LDL concentration was 55.3 ± 20.2 mg/dl and HDL concentration was 99.9 ± 27.2 mg/dl. By comparison, the lung lymph LDL concentration was ...
The common trunk of all the lymphatic_vessels in the body, except those onthe right side of the head, the neck, the chest, the right upper limb, the right lung, the right side of the heart, and in the diaphragmatic surface of the heart. The thoracic duct is the main lymphatic channel of the body that drains to the venous system from the whole of the body except the: right thorax right arm right head and neck It begins as a continuation of the cisterna chyli at the level of the T12 vertebra. It passes to the right of the aorta through the aortic hiatus. It then ascends to the right of the oesophagus with the azygous vein on its left. Posteriorly are the right posterior intercostal arteries. At the level of the fifth thoracic vertebra the duct passes superiorly and to the left, posterior to the oesophagus. It then ascends on the left side of the oesophagus into the superior mediastinum. At this point, the aorta lies anteriorly and posteriorly is the anterior longitudinal ligament of the vertebral ...

Similar to the well-recognized phenotypical heterogeneity of hepatocytes, in situ sublobular variations have recently been detected in the cell structure, fenestration patterns, filtrating efficiency, surface glycosylation, scavenger function and pathological responses of the sinusoidal lining endothelium. However, unlike other liver cell populations, until now no endothelial cell subpopulations had been isolated or defined with clarity, much less with sublobular/acinar zone-related differential properties. On the basis of our previous studies showing that periportal segments of mouse liver sinusoids express a significantly higher number of wheat germ agglutinin-binding sites than do perivenous ones, we used this differential feature for in vitro labeling of the specific sublobular derivation of isolated sinusoidal lining endothelial cells to correlate their original lobular position with other features determined on flow cytometry, centrifugal elutriation, discontinuous arabinogalactan density ...
The lymphatic system plays a vital role in our body by removing waste and toxins from our systems. Experts say that the thoracic duct (which is the largest lymphatic vessel of the lymphatic system) is situated on our left side. That is why sleeping on your left side can help the body process waste materials more effectively. Since the lymphatic system also provides transportation of fats, proteins, and other important substances to your tissues, lying on your left side allows your cells to get these nutrients much faster.. ...
IT MATTERS WHICH SIDE YOU SLEEP ON. There are several sleeping positions your front, your back, your left side, and your right side and they all affect your health. Sleeping on the back can be particularly dangerous for people with sleep apnea or asthma, because it can cause breathing difficulties.. Sleeping on the right side is likely to worsen digestion problems, whereas sleeping on the left side may improve digestive symptoms.. BENEFITS OF SLEEPING ON YOUR LEFT SIDE. Sleeping on the left side is believed to greatly improve the health and even save lives. In holistic medicine, the left side of the body is the dominant lymphatic side, and while you re sleeping on this side, your body will have more time to filter toxins, lymph fluid, and waste through the thoracic duct and the lymph nodes.. On the other hand, sleeping on your right side may cause your lymphatic system to run more slowly. You don t want this to happen, because a lymphatic system that doesn t run at full efficiency can become ...

When determining treatment options for tumors of the liver, the UMC hepatobiliary team reviews the results of ones pre-operative evaluation and overall health to recommend appropriate treatment options. Surgical resection involves the removal of one or more sections of the liver in which a tumor(s) exists. Typically, surgeons can remove up to 70% of a cancerous liver, if there is no or mild fibrosis. It will regenerate in about two to six weeks following surgery. If patients can withstand surgery and have sufficient liver function, resection offers an excellent five-year survival rate of more than 50%. Liver cancer can recur after resection, and close surveillance is required.. For surgical purposes, the liver is divided into eight segments, based on vascular inflow and bile duct drainage. Branches of the hepatic artery and portal vein supply each segment. ...
In their search for antigens, lymphocytes continuously shuttle among blood vessels, lymph vessels, and lymphatic tissues. Chemokines mediate entry of lymphocytes into lymphatic tissues, and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) promotes localization of lymphocytes to the vasculature. Both signals are sensed through G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Most GPCRs undergo ligand-dependent homologous receptor desensitization, a process that decreases their signaling output after previous exposure to high ligand concentration. Such desensitization can explain why lymphocytes do not take an intermediate position between two signals but rather oscillate between them. The desensitization of S1P receptor 1 (S1PR1) is mediated by GPCR kinase 2 (GRK2). Deletion of GRK2 in lymphocytes compromises desensitization by high vascular S1P concentrations, thereby reducing responsiveness to the chemokine signal and trapping the cells in the vascular compartment. The desensitization kinetics of S1PR1 allows lymphocytes to ...

Its almost like gardening, Leen said.. A few years ago, researchers could grow protective cells in three months to help one person fight one virus. That kind of research is typically done at research centers like Baylor College of Medicine using state, federal and private grant money.. But a three-month process to help a single person with a single virus is not commercially viable. Leen knew she needed to develop an off-the-shelf, easy-to-manufacture therapy that could help almost any patient. Coming up with a commercial therapy, though, is beyond the purview of academia, and many promising ideas never make it past this stage because researchers dont have the financial support, the expertise or the business knowledge to form a company.. We can accommodate our own patients, and weve done that for many years, but there are many patients across the country and worldwide, Leen said. Its hard to get funding to continue to provide that to patients because there is little research to do. We had ...

Its the name of whats happening. Fluid is building up (edema) in his lymph system and cant leave his leg. Normally, as your heart pumps blood into your leg, some of it is transferred into the tissue, and the fluid already in the tissue flows into lymph ducts. Lymph ducts work like veins, but for interstitial fluid (the fluid around your cells), bringing it back up to your torso and then putting it back in the blood around your right shoulder. If the lymph system is disrupted the blood keeps pumping in, fluid keeps getting pushed into the interstitial space around your cells, but the fluid already there has trouble getting out. Then you swell up ...

Since 2014, we have embedded Test Driven Development (TDD) in an introductory programming course. TDD is common industry practice for developing code, and has also become a part of curriculums at different levels and proven beneficial in educational settings (Kollanus and Isomöttönen, 2008). The method itself is rather simple: you start with writing test cases for your program (what output you expect for certain input) and then you write code that fullfils these tests. In that way, the use of the TDD enables you to test your code immediately and throughout the development, in opposed to the more traditional way in which you first finish the code and then write test cases to verify it. Teaching this method in an introductory course would also enable students to use it in later courses and be well accustomed to the method when they graduate. Researchers that conducted a previous study on this recommends that TDD should be mandatory (Marrero and Settle, 2005).. TDD has during the years 2014-2017 ...
Second, Ron Jeffriess example is terrible. He seems like the perfect guy to reference if you want to badmouth Agile and TDD. He made it sound as if TDD eliminates the need for upfront design. Thats not what we do! Brainstorm/design sessions happen a lot more often in an Agile team than in a traditional development team. TDD is there to insure that we dont write unnecessary code and all the code we write are covered by tests. These tests are usually white box tests. We already know how we want to implement it. We just want to make sure it works and continues to work over time. There are, however, times when we have to write black box tests. Thats when we were given a chunk of legacy code that nobody knows how its supposed to work. We have no choice but to gather the up-to-date requirements, write test to demonstrate them and refactor/rewrite the legacy code to be readable and working ...
