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.
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.
I do not know the answer please.
Thoracic duct is a part of Lymphatic System.
These ducts drain into the circulatory system at the right and left subclavian veins, which are located under the clavicle, or collar bone.
The Thoracic duct (left lymphatic duct) is a part of the lymphatic system. It is the largest lymphatic vessel in the body.
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.
They drain and empty in the large veins of the neck 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.
righ occipital vessels
It drains into the systemic (blood) circulation at the left brachiocephalic vein between the left subclavian and left internal jugular veins.
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.
