Maybe the question is dealing with the concept of myogenic arteriolar vasoconstriction which is a another anti-edema mechanism. The pre capillary sphincter contract in response to a raise in BP. I got the Q wrong because I picked lymphatic flow. They love to go for the "what else" element of any topic. I cannot find any reason why the lymphatic option could be wrong :/
