transporting fat into the blood stream
an artery, a vein, a capillary net, and a lacteal (a tiny lymph vessel)
Dilation of a lymph vessel is called what? Its called lymphangiectasis
A lacteal is a specialized lymph vessel that absorbs fats in the small intestine.
They are called either lymph ducts or lymph capillaries.
They are called lacteals.
These are called lacteals. They are located in the center of each villus (imagine a bone inside a finger). They absorb fat into the lymph and create a milky substance called chyle.
Angiitis is inflammation of a blood or lymph vessel. Vasculitis is inflammation of a blood vessel. Lymphangitis is inflammation of a lymph vessel.The condition is called vasculitis. An auto immune form is polyangiitis.(see the related link)
A lymph vessel. They are similar in function to blood vessels. However the lymph is moved along the vessel by muscle contractions rather than by the heart pumping.

The Villus Absorbs fat, minerals,& essentials needed for creating energy In our body into the blood. Which then Leaves us with the waste materials which are the undigested matter that is pushed into the Large Intestine. Therefore The role of Villus in relation to the absorption of the end products of digestion is that it creates the end products of digestion.Villus increase the surface area of the intestine, this allows for increased absorption.
That is the villi (sing. villus.) The villi are built for absorption in the small intestine. They are small, finger-like projections on the inside of the small intestine. They increase the interior surface area of the small intestine 30-60x and aid digestion.There are different kinds of villi:Villus Capillaries -- Take amino acids and sugars into the blood streamVillus Lacteal -- Collects absorbed chylomicrons, which are lipoproteins composed of triglycerides, cholesterol and amphipathic proteins, and are taken to the rest of the body through the Lymph fluid
The lymph in the lacteals has a milky appearance due to its high fat content and is called chyle.
Afferent lymphatic vessel

If lymph iis not pushed through a lymphatic vessel, it will leak back out of the lymphatic capillaries. When this happens, swelling of th surrounding tissue occurs. This condition is called Edema.
afferent lymphatic vessels
The contraction of certain muscles squeezes the lymph vessels, pumping lymph throughout the system
