Lymph flow as measured with biomicroscopic and speckle-interferometrical techniques was very unstable and its rate did not depend on lymphangion diameter in the rat mesentery. A correlation was found between amount of cells in the lymph flow and other indices of lymphangion functions. All microvessels with phasic contractions and/or working valve were revealed as having a lymph flow. The phasic activity and the valve work correlated with each other. The higher the amplitude and frequency of the phasic activity and the longer the contraction cycle, the higher was the rate of the valve work.
