</P>Gunnar Grotte, Emeritus Professor in Pediatric Surgery at Uppsala University, died on September 16, 2009, at the age of 89 years.</P>Dr Grotte was born in Sölvesborg, Sweden, where his father was the vice president of a bank. He grew up in the town of Sundsvall and completed his medical degree in Stockholm. He had comprehensive training in numerous specialities at different clinics in Sweden, including general surgery, pediatric surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, and otolaryngology. He was a visiting fellow in the United States in 1949 at the Children's Hospital in Boston, MA, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. His postgraduate studies were performed at the Institute of Physiology and the Department of Clinical Chemistry at the University of Uppsala. In 1956, he was awarded a PhD. His doctoral thesis attracted much attention because it was the first study on the passage of a noncharged polymer (dextran) across capillary membranes from plasma to lymph. He used a newly developed technique in experimental surgery by cannulating various lymphatics in the rat. He was able to determine the molecular weight distribution of dextran in micro amounts. Later, this experimental model was used in dogs where he demonstrated the different permeability
