Which is true regarding lymphatic vessels?
Select Your Answer:
1. There are no lymphatics in the brain
2. Lymphatic vessels always pass through lymph nodes
3. Lymph production is the same amount as capillary filtrate
4. They are only responsible for reabsorption of a small amount of protein from the interstitial space
In general, the two organs without lymphatics are the brain and spleen.
Lymphatics always cross lymph nodes except those in the thyroid, heart, esophagus, and suprarenal glands.
Total lymph production is only about 10 to 20% of the capillary filtrate.
Lymphatics are responsible for reabsorption of all protein from the interstitial tissues.
