Abdomen - parietal lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici parietales. Lymph nodes in the abdominal wall.
Left lumbar lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici lumbales (lumbares) sinistri. Nodes situated along the abdominal aorta. They mainly serve as secondary filter stations for lymph nodes located further below, but also as primary filter stations for the suprarenal gland, kidney, ureter, testis, ovary, uterine tubes, fundus of uterus and abdominal wall. Efferents: primarily into the lumbar trunk. They can be divided into the following three groups.
Lateral aortic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici aortici laterales. Group on the left side of the aorta. A
Pre-aortic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici preaortici. Group situated in front of the aorta. A Postaortic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici postaortici. This group lies between the aorta and vertebral column. A Intermediate lumbar lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici lumbales (lumbares) intermedii. Group situated between the aorta and inferior vena cava. They function as described in 2-A Right lumbar lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici lumbales (lumbares) dextri. Group situated along the inferior vena cava.They function as described in (2) and are subdivided into the following three groups.
Lateral caval lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici cavales laterales. Nodes on the right side of the inferior vena cava. A
Precaval lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici pre-cavales.Nodessituatedinfrontofthevenacava.A
10 Postcaval lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici postcavales. Nodes located behind the vena cava. A
11 Inferior phrenic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici phrenici inferiores. Nodes situated along the inferior surface of the diaphragm near the aortic opening. A C
12 Inferior epigastric lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici epigastrici inferiores. Three or four nodes along the inferior epigastric artery that receive lymph from its supply area. B
13 Visceral nodes. Abdomen - nodi lymphatici viscerales. Lymph nodes of the abdominal viscera.
14 Celiac lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici coeliaci. Nodes situated the celiac trunk. They form the secondary filter station for the stomach, duodenum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas and spleen. Efferents: some formthe intestinal trunk, some pass directly into the cisterna chyli. A C
15 Gastric lymph nodes [right and left]. Nodi lymphatici gastrici [dextri/sinistri]. From the lesser curvature of the stomach, they follow the course of the right and left gastric arteries. Afferent region: stomach. Efferents: celiac lymph nodes. C
16 [Anulus lymphaticus cardiae]. Lymphatic ring occasionally present around the cardia of the stomach. C
17 Gastro-omental lymph nodes [right and left].
Nodi lymphatici gastro-omentales [dextri/sinistri]. Nodes located along the course of the right and left gastro-omental arteries at the greater curvature of the stomach. Their afferents receive lymph from the stomach and the greater omentum and their efferents convey lymph along the right side to the lymph nodes of the liver and along the left side to the lymph nodes of the spleen and pancreas. C
18 Pyloric lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici pylorici. Situated around the pylorus. Their efferents drain into the hepatic or celiac lymph nodes.
19 Suprapyloric node. [Nodus suprapyloricus]. Node situated above the pylorus. C
20 Subpyloric nodes. [Nodi subpylorici]. Nodes situated caudal to the pylorus. C
21 Retropyloric nodes. [Nodi retropylorici]. Group of nodes located dorsal to the pylorus. C
22 Pancreatic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici pan-creatici. Situated along the upper and lower margins of the pancreas. Their efferent vessels convey lymph to the splenic lymph nodes, mesenteric lymph nodes and pancreati-coduodenal lymph nodes.
23 Superior pancreatic lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici pancreatici superiores. Group of nodes located along the upper margin of the pancreas. AC
24 Inferior pancreatic lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici pancreatici inferiores. Group ofnodes located along the lower margin of the pancreas. AC
25 Splenic (lienal) lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici splenici (lienales). Nodes near the hilum of the spleen that convey their lymph to the celiac lymph nodes. AC
Pancreaticoduodenal lymph nodes. Nodi lym-phatici pancreaticoduodenales. Small nodes between the pancreas and duodenum. Afferent regions: duodenum and pancreas. Superior pancreaticoduodenal lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici pancreaticoduodenales superiores. Cranially situated group of nodes. Efferents: hepatic nodes. C Inferior pancreaticoduodenal lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici pancreaticoduodenales inferiores. Caudal group of lymph nodes. Efferents: mesenteric lymph nodes. C Hepatic lymph nodes. Nodi lymphatici hepat-ici. Nodes situated near the hilum of the liver and in the hepatoduodenal ligament. Their lymph is taken partly from the liver, partly from adjacent lymph nodes and transported to the celiac lymph nodes.
Cystic node. Nodus cysticus. Larger lymph node near the neck of the gallbladder. C Foraminal node. Nodus foraminalis. Larger lymph node near the epiploic foramen. C

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
