Example text

In normal lung, the lymphatics are barely visible microscopically. However, they become very distended and easily visible in pulmonary oedema and their presence may become apparent on chest radiographs. Distended anastomotic channels between perivenous- and peribroncho-arterial vessels are seen as Kerley A lines, while thickening of the interlobular septa around dilated subpleural interlobular lymphatics is seen as Kerley B lines. Such appearances occur typically in pulmonary oedema, lymphatic spread of carcinoma and some pneumoconioses [117].

The mean pulmonary artery pressure is only about 2 kPa (15 mmHg), and since blood flow = driving pressure/ resistance the resistance in the pulmonary circulation is only about one-tenth that of the systemic circulation. The pulmonary circulation has a remarkable reserve capacity, which is due to the great distensibility of the pulmonary vasculature and also to recruitment of capacitance vessels not in use.
