Microfluidics: asymmetric and symmetric t-junctions

I have been looking on the web but I can't seem to find a textbook answer that describes the difference between microfluidic t-junctions that are symmetric and those that are asymmetric.
From some papers I've gathered that you can make t-junctions asymmetric by changing the hydraulic resistance which can be done by changing the lengths or widths of the channels extending from the t-junction. However, is that simply the difference between the two or am I missing something else?
Any help would be appreciated thanks!
