The lymphatic drainage of the cranial part of the sheep's uterus and its possible functional significance.
Published in Journal of Experimental and Clinical Anatomy
The lymphatic drainage of the cranial part of the uterus is described. Some of the uterine lymphatic vessels are closely associated with the ovarian arterial supply. It is proposed that the uterine lymphatics form part of the local pathway for the transfer of uterine prostaglandin F2 alpha to the ovary for luteolysis.
