Where does the thoracic duct of the lymph system drain into?
The long thoracic duct begins at the cysterna chyli and continues superiorly to drain the lymph from the legs, abdomen, left arm, and left side of the thorax, neck, and head into the left subclavian vein, then on to its juncture with an internal jugular vein to drain lymph into venous blood

Thanks for the feedback!
In the left subclavian vein.
How does the way lymph drains from the right thoracic duct differ from the way it drains from the left thoracic duct?
The right thoracic duct drains lymph from the upper right section of the body, right arm, and right side of the head, neck, and lower half of the left lung. The left thora…cic duct drains lymph from similar areas of the body, but on the left side.
The right lympathic duct empties into the right subclavian vein and the left lympathic duct (thoracic duct) empties into the left subclavian vein.
The Thoracic Duct drains into the Left subclavian vein. Worth noting is there is a Right lymphatic duct which drains the lymph fluid from the right arm and the right s…ide of the face. This dumps into the right subclavian vein. The Thoracic Duct drains everything else.
at the left brachiocephalic vein, right between where the left subclavian vein and left internal jugular connect
All the body's lymphatic vessels (except the those in the right part of the torso, the right arm, and the right side of the neck and head) the drain lymphatic fluid that is co…llected from all the rest of the body's tissues into the thoracic duct and into left subclavian vein. The lymphatic fluid from the right part of the torso, the right arm, and the right side of the neck and head drain into the right lymphatic duct and then into the right subclavian vein.
These ducts drain into the circulatory system at the right and left subclavian veins, which are located under the clavicle, or collar bone.
Into the large neck veins of the cardiovascular system.
It drains into the systemic (blood) circulation at the left brachiocephalic vein between the left subclavian and left internal jugular veins.
The thoracic duct is the same as in all mammals. It returns lymphto vascular system via the subclavicular veins.
Lymph vessels carry the lymph fluid back to the circulaiton via the lymph nodes. The short parts of the vessels that connect hte lymph vessels to the ciculaiton are the …lymphatic ducts (right lymphatic duct and thoracic duct)
I do not know the answer please.
The thoracic duct plays a major role in the lymphatic system. A large part of the body's lymph is collected by this duct, and drained into the bloodstream.
The main function of the thoracic duct is to allow lymph transport that is caused by breathing. It also prevents blood from flowing into the ducts.
