Abstract


This paper aimed to emphasize the popliteus lymphonode in dogs by using Evans Blue as intravital colouring dye; a nonionic organoiodic contrast substance called Ultravist 300; as well as monomeric resin. Upon injecting we were able to notice and pinpoint the topographic location of the popliteus lymphocenter; the number of lymphonodes it consists of; as well as the pattern of blood flow characteristic to it.

Keywords


popliteus lymphonode; lymphatic system; vascular circulation; dogs
