The hepatic lymph nodes (lymphoglandulæ hepaticæ), consist of the following groups:
* (a) hepatic, on the stem of the
hepatic artery, and extending upward along the common bile duct, between the two layers of the lesser omentum, as far as the porta hepatis; the cystic gland, a member of this group, is placed near the neck of the gall-bladder;
* (b) subpyloric, four or five in number, in close relation to the bifurcation of the
gastroduodenal artery, in the angle between the superior and descending parts of the duodenum; an outlying member of this group is sometimes found above the duodenum on the right gastric (pyloric) artery.
The glands of the hepatic chain receive afferents from the
stomach, duodenum, liver, gall-bladder, and pancreas; their efferents join the celiac group of preaortic glands.
