Abstract

The liver and pancreas develop from the caudal end of the foregut to which they remain attached through the bile duct from the liver and the pancreatic ducts. The spleen develops in the dorsal mesogastrium and all three organs are supplied by the artery of the foregut, the coeliac, and are drained by veins which join the portal vein.
