Comments P.313 left column bottom paragraph: "In sheep, occlusion of the cribriform plate of the ethmoid bone increases the intracranial pressure [ref 33], and lymphatic absorption of CSF increases with increasing intracranial pressure. At normal intracranial pressure, 10% of cervical lymph is derived from CSF, but when intracranial pressure increases from 10 to 70 cm H2O, 80% of cervical lymph is derived from CSF and the cervical lymphatic flow rate is increased fourfold [ref 34]."
