anastomoses between the two vascular 
systems it is not difficult to explain <s>Kolliker Histology Syd Soc Ed 11.177<\s>

thus Virchow found that in a case of Pneumonia 
in which the pulmonary artery was 
obstructed the collateral circulation was 
carried on by the bronchial & intercostal 
arteries / Archiv.I.18.111456./ & Guillot 
/ Archives 4.VII.169) states that in a case of Phthisis the 
circulation, which was arrested in the pul=

intercostal, and other arteries “Ces vaisseaux

& le versent dans les veines pulmonaires”
Hasse / Pathological anatomy Syd. Soc. 335) however considers 
“that the two circulations often I should say almost 
invariably remain distinct.”
It cannot thus be said that Dr Heale has proved that there is no anastomosis between the pulmonary & bronchial systems of bloodvessels or upset the experimental & rational views of Rossignol & Adriani.
Dr Heale p 65 states that the pulmonary plexus to the bronchial mucous membrane “is made to supply the bronchial mucus” but he advances no proof of the statement. Probably the serous protein of the mucous is supplied <s>by the pulmonary</s> by the pulmonary plexus, especially in Bronchioles where the pulmonary vessels are congested and
