Definition:A network of blunt ended vessels lacking direct connection to the blood vascular system. These vessels collect and drain fluids and macromolecules from interstitial spaces throughout the animal. They derive from a subpopulation of endothelial cells and have walls that are much thinner than the blood carrying vessels. Lymphatic vessels are usually classified as either superficial or deep.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: lymphatic trunks and ducts;   lymphatic vasculature;   lymphatic vessel network;   lymphatic vessels set;   set of lymphatic vessels;   trunci et ductus lymphatici
