Transudate

 

an edematous fluid that collects in the body’s cavities as a result of disturbances in the circulation of blood or in the flow of lymph (such as ascites, or abdominal dropsy, in cases of cardiac insufficiency or cirrhosis of the liver). Transudation, in contrast to exudation, may take place without inflammation of the tissues.

The result of interactions of cells and released mediators is complex and includes alterations in smooth muscle tone, secretions from the submucosal glands, inflammatory cell recruitment, and fluid transudation.[1] For example, alterations in smooth muscle tone result in bronchocon-striction which can be further cate-gorized into one of two phases - immediate and late.

This has been explained to be a due to the chemical affinity of the silicone gel for the silicone elastomer of the implant shell resulting in a transudation of the silicone gel through the implant shell.14th More distant extracapsular silicone (axillary or more distant sites) can be seen in the setting of gel bleed.
Treatment outcomes with metronidazole was poor because blood flow to the colon in patients with severe disease could have decreased resulting in less transudation of metronidazole into the lumen.
