The duodenum is the first part of the intestinal canal, commencing at the pyloric orifice of the stomach, and terminating in the jejunum. Its length is about twelve fingers breadth, and as it is only partially covered by the peritoneum, it is susceptible of considerable dilatation; hence its name Ventriculus succenturiatus. In the duodenum, chylification takes place after the admixture of the biliary and pancreatic fluids with the chyme.
