All rats then underwent abdominal surgery to separate the mesenteric lymph duct from the surrounding connective tissues.
Our studies showed that the mesenteric lymph duct ligation (MLDL) could alleviate kidney injury following two-hit of hemorrhage and lipopolysaccharide and hemorrhagic shock with fluid resuscitation [8, 9].
Recently, the PVS was observed for the first time in the lymph duct running from the inguinal to the axillary lymph nodes in the skin by injecting Alcian blue into the inguinal lymph node [12].
Additional studies reported that the lymphatic system is a pathway underlying the spread of lung and gut injury after intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (6), that mesenteric lymph duct (MLD) ligation improved survival rate (7), and that mesenteric lymph drainage could block the "gut-lymph" pathway, improve intestinal barrier function, and attenuate distant organ injury incurred by intestinal I/R (8).
For example, when they talk about "lymph", they naturally also introduce "lymphedema", "lymphocyte", "lymphoma", "lymph tissue", "lymph ducts", "lymph nodes" and so forth.
Dietary restriction of long-chain triglycerides (LCT) avoids their conversion into monoglycerides and free fatty acids (FFA), which are transported as chylomicrons to the intestinal lymph ducts. In contrast, MCTs are absorbed directly into intestinal cells and transported as FFA and glycerol directly to the liver via the portal vein.
