Description: (Location & Drainage)

The nodes around the cardia form a lymphatic ring around the cardia of the stomach. There are one to three nodes anterior to the cardia that are consistent. Small nodes many also be seen between at the angle between the esophagus and the cardia in 50% of the population. These nodes receive afferent vessels from the cardia of the stomach and deliver lymph to the gastric and celiac nodes (Földi et al., 2012).
