The pancreatic duct runs the length of the pancreas and empties into the second part of the duodenum at the ampulla of Vater.
The pancreas is supplied arterially by the pancreaticoduodenal arteries, themselves branches of the superior mesenteric artery or of the hepatic artery (branch of celiac trunk from the abdominal aorta).
Pancreatic secretions from ductal cells contain bicarbonate ions and are alkaline in order to neutralize the acidic chyme that the stomach churns out.
