Abstract

A new view of the effect of tissue oncotic pressure in Starlings hypothesis was studied. The hypothesis stated that the difference in concentration of plasma proteins between the plasma and tissue was responsible for an oncotic pressure, which opposed the hydrostatic filtration. Results showed that the new hypothesis was first explored in a detailed cellular-level microstructural model.
