Superficial Lymphatics of the foot

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In nearly every tissue of the body there is a marvelous network of vessels, precisely like the lacteals, known as the lymphatics. They seem to start out of the part in which they are found, like the rootlets of a plant in the soil. The tiny roots join together and make larger roots. They carry a fluid called lymph, very much like blood without the red corpuscles. It is to be remembered that the lacteals are really the lymphatics which begin in the villi of the small intestine.” — Blaisedell, 1904
