Small Intestine
...  helped along by a direct route from the superior mesenteric artery. Venous drainage that leads to the meeting with the splenic vein is performed by the superior mesenteric vein, creating the hepatic Portal vein. The hepatic Portal vein connects to the liver, bringing the nutrient-laden blood supply which can be used by the body. The Sections of the Small Intestine The small intestine can be  ...
