As the venous system is also the lymphatic system comprising a plurality of thin-walled vessels, which transport liquid through the body. Small lymphatic vessels open into larger, which ultimately flow through the ductus thoraicus or right lymphatic channel into the central venous system. Most of the lymphatic vessels have flaps similar to those in the veins through which the lymph flows only in one direction (toward the heart). in contrast to the venous system in the liquid (blood) is pumped through the heart, the lymph is driven by the pressure generated by muscle contraction pressure.

The plasma moves routinely along with some WBL from the capillaries into the interstitial space. The major part of the liquid and its components is absorbed by tissue cells or absorbed in the vascular tree, depending on the balance of hydrostatic and oncotic pressure. However, a portion of the liquid enters, together with certain cells and cell residues (z. B. due to the immune response to local infections, cancer, inflammation) in the lymphatic system.

Before entering into the central venous system lymph passes through lymph nodes filter out the cell material, including cancer cells, and foreign bodies. Lymph nodes play an important role in the immune system because they are filled with lymphocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells, which are ready to respond to all antigens that come from the tissue into the lymph. Lymph nodes are superficial or deep categorized. Superficial nodes are directly under the skin, they are everywhere in the body, but particularly concentrated in the neck, in the armpits and in the groin. Depth lymph nodes are located in the abdominal or thoracic cavity. Diseases of the lymphatic system disorders of the lymphatic system include one or more of the following: constipation infection or inflammation cancer Constipation leads to accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the tissue (lymphedema) and is usually a result of surgery, radiation therapy, injury or, in tropical countries, lymphatic filariasis , Rare is a congenital Erkan Kung (lymphedema: Primary lymphoedema) is the cause. Infections may cause reactive lymph node swelling (Lymphadenopathi]) or the node itself can infect (lymphadenitis) when organisms spread through the lymphatic system from the primary site of infection of. Various cancers can metastasize to local or regional lymph nodes. Rarely has a primary cancer (z. B. Lymphangiosarcoma) develops in the lymphatic system.
