Neck of pancreas

The neck is the second portion of the pancreas. It is directed upward and forward and continues as the body laterally. The neck is found anterior to the superior mesenteric vessels and posterior to the pylorus of the stomach, as well as the root of the transverse mesocolon. Also, the superior mesenteric vein unites with the splenic vein posterior to the neck, forming the hepatic portal vein (Read more!).
