Conveying outwards, as from the centre to the periphery. Vans efferentia are those lymphatic or chyliferous vessels which issue from the glands to convey their lymph to the thoracic duct; so called to distinguish them from those which pass to those glands, and which have been termed vasa afferentia seu inferentia. Also, nerves that convey the nervous influence from the nervous centres to the circumference. See Afferent. At the upper extremity of the mediastinum testis, the ducts of the rete testis terminate in from 9 to 30 small ducts, called vasa efferentia, which forms the Coni vasculosi.
