Sections of the Duodenum

Summary Information: Sections of the Duodenum

Sections of the Duodenum: There is four sections that make of the duodenum, a muscular tube that connects the stomach to the jejunum, the second portion of the small intestine. Partially digested food from the stomach, or chyme, is further digested in the four sections of the duodenum with the aid of bile and pancreatic juice. Bile and pancreatic juice are secreted into the second section of the duodenum through the pancreatic duct and the common bile duct. After digestion, nutrients are absorbed into the body in the four sections of the duodenum.

Conditions that afflict the sections of the duodenum include duodenal ulcer, small intestine cancer, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, and paralytic ileus.
