Anatomical Considerations The normal lung contains two circulatory systems: the pulmonary and the bronchial. The pulmonary vasculature is a low-pressure, large-volume system, perfused by mixed venous blood from the right side of the heart; the pulmonary circulation is responsible for gas exchange. The bronchial circulation (and consequently, the airway circulation) is a high-pressure, small-volume system, that derives arterial blood from the systemic circulation. Its main function is to provide nutrition to the walls of the airway (trachea and bronchi), to the large pulmonary blood vessels, to hiliar structures, such as the lymph nodes, and to the visceral pleura (8–11).

In summary, early lung vascular development in the mouse occurs by two concurrent but separate systems: vasculogenesis in the periphery and angiogenesis centrally. A third process of fusion between the two systems establishes the pulmonary circulation. Further growth of peripheral vessels then proceeds by angiogenesis. One could speculate regarding the necessity for the two processes of vascular development in the lung. , the branching pattern for the conventional and supernumerary arteries. The developing airway and its accompanying pulmonary artery could then be “drawn” to the sites of vasculogenesis by a chemoattractant mechanism completing the vascular circuit and permitting formation of the air-blood barrier within the airspace wall.
