Description: (Location & Drainage)

The node of the anterior border of the omental foramen belongs to the hepatic lymph nodes. It is elongated, extending from the cystic duct towards the posterior surface of the duodenum. It receives afferent vessels from the cystic node, as well as the gallbladder, cystic duct, and hepatic duct. Its efferent vessels reach the posterior nodes of the superior pancreaticoduodenal nodes and the lateral aortic nodes (Földi et al., 2012).
