Drains bile into the second part of the duodenum-the bile duct is formed by union of the common hepatic and cystic ducts, lies lateral to the proper hepatic artery and anterior to the portal vein in the right free margin of the lesser omentum, traverses the head of the pancreas, and drains bile into the second part of the duodenum at the greater papilla. the endocrine part of the pancreas secretes the hormones insulin and glucagon, which are transported through the bloodstream. the main pancreatic duct carries pancreatic juice containing enzymes secreted from the exocrine part of the pancreas.
