The effects of increased hydrostatic pressure on the concentrations of hyaluronan (hyaluronic acid) in lung lymph and serum were investigated in awake sheep with a cannula in the efferent vessel from the caudal mediastinal lymph node. Lung lymph was sampled at base line [left atrial pressure (LAP) 6.5 +/- 1.7 mmHg] and after two increases of LAP to 25.7 +/- 2.2 mmHg (level 1) and 37.0 +/- 5.1 mmHg (level 2). The lung lymph flow increased from 1.9 +/- 0.5 at base line to 9.3 +/- 2.2 and 15.9 +/- 0.7 ml/30 min, and the lymph-to-plasma concentration ratio of total protein decreased from 0.63 +/- 0.02 to 0.32 +/- 0.04 and 0.32 +/- 0.05 at the two elevated levels of LAP, respectively. The hyaluronan concentration in lung lymph was unchanged, and there was a flow-dependent elimination of hyaluronan from the lung that increased from 23 +/- 8 to 87 +/- 19 and 137 +/- 37 micrograms/30 min, respectively. The lung concentration of hyaluronan was 167 +/- 28 micrograms/g fresh lung, and at base line it was calculated that slightly less than 2% of the lung hyaluronan was eliminated by the lymphatic route in 24 h. If extrapolated to 24 h, the elimination rate of hyaluronan seen during elevated LAP would result in lymphatic elimination of 18% of the lung hyaluronan over this time period. Since hyaluronan is responsible for part of the protein exclusion in the extracellular matrix, it is plausible that washout of interstitial hyaluronan contributes to the decrease in albumin exclusion from the interstitium that occurs after an elevation of LAP.
