Common Bile Duct
Main Pancreatic Duct
left and right hepatic ducts unite to form the Common
Hepatic Duct. The common hepatic duct unites with the Cystic
Duct to form the Common Bile Duct.
The common bile duct passes posterior to the bulb of the duodenum and is related
to its superior, posterior, and inferior aspects. It joins the Main
Pancreatic Duct, and penetrates the posteromedial wall of the descending
duodenum as the greater duodenal papilla. The common bile duct, proper hepatic
artery, and the portal vein are the primary constituents of the lesser omentum.
