The pioneering work of Starling (1896) described the factors determining the transmural filtration of fluid and these physical forces are called Starling forces and the equation may be presented as:
where Q is the filtration rate across the capillary membrane, K is the capillary filtration coefficient, and a is the reflection coefficient. Pc, Pt, πc and πt are the capillary hydrostatic, interstitial hydrostatic, capillary oncotic and interstitial oncotic pressures respectively.
$$Q = K(Pc - Pt) - \sigma (\pi c - \pi t)$$
