Cisterna Chyli definition: An enlarged sac-like lymph vessel located in the lumbar region of the abdominal cavity, just right of the ABDOMINAL AORTA.
Lymph definition: Transudate contained in the lumen of lymphatic vessel.
lymph definition: transparent slightly yellow fluid found in the lymphatic vessels; contains lymphocytes; it is derived from the tissue fluids, collected from all parts of the body and returned to the blood via the lymphatic system.
lymph definition: (limf) The almost colorless fluid that travels through the lymphatic system and carries cells that help fight infection and disease.
Lymph definition: Transudate contained in the lumen of lymphatic vessel.
LYMPH definition: A clear, transparent, sometimes faintly yellow and slightly opalescent fluid that is collected from the tissues throughout the body, flows in the lymphatic vessels (through the lymph nodes), and is eventually added to the venous blood circulation. Lymph consists of a clear liquid portion, varying numbers of white blood cells (chiefly lymphocytes), and a few red blood cells. (NCI)

Lymph Nodes definition: They are oval or bean shaped bodies (1 - 30 mm in diameter) located along the lymphatic system.
lymph node definition: any of the accumulations of lymphoid tissue organized as definite lymphoid organs, varying from 1 to 25 mm in diameter situated along the course of lymphatic vessels and consisting of an outer cortical and an inner medullary part; the main source of lymphocytes of the peripheral blood and, as part of the reticuloendothelial system, serves as a defense mechanism by removing noxious agents, such as bacteria and toxins.
lymph node definition: (limf node) A rounded mass of lymphatic tissue that is surrounded by a capsule of connective tissue. Lymph nodes filter lymph (lymphatic fluid), and they store lymphocytes (white blood cells). They are located along lymphatic vessels.
LYMPH NODE definition: A bean-shaped organ surrounded by a connective tissue capsule. It is part of the lymphatic system and is found through out the body. It is composed predominantly of lymphocytes and its main function is immune protection. (NCI)

Lymphedema definition: Edema due to obstruction of lymph vessels or disorders of the lymph nodes.
lymphedema definition: edema due to obstruction of lymph vessels or disorders of the lymph nodes.
lymphedema definition: (LIMF-eh-DEE-ma) A condition in which excess fluid collects in tissue and causes swelling. It may occur in the arm or leg after lymph vessels or lymph nodes in the underarm or groin are removed or treated with radiation.
Lymphedema definition: Excess fluid collection in tissues, causing swelling. It is the result of obstruction of lymphatic vessels or lymph nodes. -- 2004
Lymphocytes definition: White blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue. The nucleus is round or ovoid with coarse, irregularly clumped chromatin while the cytoplasm is typically pale blue with azurophilic (if any) granules. Most lymphocytes can be classified as either T or B (with subpopulations of each), or NATURAL KILLER CELLS.
lymphocyte definition: white blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue.
lymphocyte definition: (LIM-fo-site) A type of white blood cell. Lymphocytes have a number of roles in the immune system, including the production of antibodies and other substances that fight infection and diseases.
lymphocytic definition: (lim-fo-SIT-ik) Referring to lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell.
Lymphocyte definition: White blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue. The nucleus is round or ovoid with coarse, irregularly clumped chromatin while the cytoplasm is typically pale blue with azurophilic (if any) granules. Most lymphocytes can be classified as either T or B (with subpopulations of each); those with characteristics of neither major class are called null cells.
Lymphocytic definition: Of or pertaining to lymphocytes.
Lymph Node Biopsy definition: A test in which a lymph node or a piece of a lymph node is removed for examination under a microscope for signs of infection or disease such as cancer.
Lymphatic vessel definition: Subdivision of the lymphatic tree (organ) that is elongated and tubular, the lumen of which is continuous with the lumen of veins, directly or indirectly; it conveys lymph from organs and body parts to lymph nodes and veins; together with other lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes, it constitutes the lymphatic tree (organ). Examples: bronchomediastinal lymph duct, thoracic duct.
Lymphatic vessel definition: Segment of lymphatic tree organ, the wall and lumen of which are continuous with those of the veins, directly or indirectly; together with other lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes, it constitutes the lymphatic tree organ. Examples: bronchomediastinal lymph duct, thoracic duct.
Lymphatic Vessels definition: Tubular vessels that are involved in the transport of LYMPH and LYMPHOCYTES.
Lymphatic Vessel definition: A tubule that carries lymph throughout the body.
Lymph Leakage definition: The loss of lymph into the surrounding tissue or body cavity.
Axillary Lymph Node Biopsy definition: Surgical removal of tissues from the lymph nodes located in the cavity beneath the junction of the arm and the thorax (armpit) so that a biopsy can be performed.
Intra-Abdominal Lymph Node definition: Any lymph node within the abdomen.
axillary lymph nodes definition: Lymph nodes found in the armpit that drain the lymph channels from the breast.
AXILLARY LYMPH NODE definition: One of approximately 20-30 lymph nodes in chain formation that traverse the concavity of the underarm to the clavicle. (NCI)
Axillary Lymph Node definition: One of approximately 20-30 lymph nodes in chain formation that traverse the concavity of the underarm to the clavicle.
Central lymph definition: Lymph proper contained in a lymph trunks and in efferent and afferent lymphatic vessels of higher than primary order.
Central lymph definition: Lymph proper contained in a lymph trunks and in efferent and afferent lymphatic vessels of higher than primary order.
Peripheral lymph definition: Lymph proper contained in lymphatic capillaries and primary afferent lymphatic vessels.
Peripheral lymph definition: Lymph proper contained in lymphatic capillaries and primary afferent lymphatic vessels.
Benign Lymphatic Vessel Neoplasm definition: A benign neoplasm arising from the lymphatic vessels.
axillary lymph node dissection definition: (AK-sil-air-ee) Surgery to remove lymph nodes found in the armpit region.
Axillary Lymph Node Dissection definition: Surgical removal of the lymph nodes located in the cavity beneath the junction of the arm and the thorax, or axilla (armpit). This procedure is commonly performed as a component of cancer staging.
Lymph Node Sinus definition: An irregular tortuous space within lymph nodes through which a continuous stream of lymph passes entering into the efferent lymphatic vessels.
lymph circulation definition: The flow of lymph through the body of an animal. [GOC:mtg_cardio]
lymph definition: Lymphe.
