Abstract

New questions must be formulated concerning the events in obstructive jaundice; the old controversy as to whether bile regurgitates into lymph or into blood is no longer applicable. Blood as well as lymph transports excess BSP (and presumably bilirubin) from the obstructed liver. The importance of one route over the other depends on the form of the molecule and the duration of bile stasis.
