Description: (Location & Drainage)

The celiac nodes are located adjacent to the celiac trunk and are considered part of the preaortic nodes. These nodes receive lymph from nodes around the stomach, lesser omentum, spleen, duodenum, liver, and pancreas.

The efferent vessels of the celiac nodes carry lymph to the intestinal trunk (Standring, 2016).
