The surgery removes the right side of the pancreas, the gallbladder, and parts of the stomach, bile duct, and small intestine.
In more anterior sections the bile duct is larger in cross section, being about one-half the diameter of the oesophagus.
The junction of the two parts takes place a very short distance behind the opening of the bile duct into the intestine.
Extending along the ventral border of the liver is a long narrow duct, apparently the bile duct, bd.
The stomach is continuous behind with the duodenum, the commencement of which is indicated by the opening of the bile duct.
In a lateral projection of this mass of mesoblast 13 lies a small, circular opening, the bile duct, bd.
A paralysis of the bile duct produces a similar jaundice, but without pain.
Close to the pyloric valve, on its right side, is a small papilla, on the apex of which the bile duct opens (b.d).

Any of the excretory ducts in the liver that convey bile between the liver and the intestine, including the hepatic, cystic, and common bile ducts. Also called gall duct.
