The venous drainage of the gastrointestinal tract, from the lower esophagus to the upper rectum is by way of the portal venous system.

Large Intestine

This system also drains the spleen and pancreas. Clinical Consideration Portal obstruction. In cases of liver disease where the portal blood can no longer pass through the liver, the blood will try to get back to the heart any way it can and this usually involves the superior or inferior venae cavae. One possible cause of liver disease is chronic alcoholism. In case of the esophageal plexus (*1), esophageal varices will develop and massive hemorrhage may occur resulting in death. In case of the rectal plexus (*2), hemorrhoids occur, resulting in pain and bleeding. In case of the paraumbilical veins (*3), visible signs of venous enlargement and tortuosity occur on the abdomen and these are referred to the caput medusae. Caval blockage.

Pictures of the Digestive System

Accessory organs of the digestive system include the teeth, tongue, salivary glands, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. To achieve the goal of providing energy and nutrients to the body, six major functions take place in the digestive system: IngestionSecretionMixing and movementDigestionAbsorptionExcretion Digestive System Anatomy Mouth Food begins its journey through the digestive system in the mouth, also known as the oral cavity. Teeth. PharynxThe pharynx, or throat, is a funnel-shaped tube connected to the posterior end of the mouth. EsophagusThe esophagus is a muscular tube connecting the pharynx to the stomach that is part of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Esophageal sphincter or cardiac sphincter. Stomach The stomach is a muscular sac that is located on the left side of the abdominal cavity, just inferior to the diaphragm. Digestive System Physiology.
