A new method of obtaining a chronic fistula of intestinal lymphatic duct in cats, functioning for 6–7 days is described. The lymph from the fistula was examined in conditions of a chronic experiments. It was revealed that the refractometric index after forcing fluid is decreased from 1.3450–1.3440 to 1.3360, while the quantity of the lymph is increased from 0.1 for half an hour to 3 ml within 5 minutes. The same experiments were carried out on anesthetized cats—no significant changes of refractometric index or of the quantity of the lymph from the fistula could be noted after forcing fluids.
