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

The thoracic duct serves as a duct which lymph drains into which then drains into the venous system before returning to the heart to be cleansed and recirculated.

The main collecting duct for the lymphatic system is the thoracic duct located alongside the aorta in the thoracic region of the body. Most lower body lymph (lymph from the front and back of both legs and the abdominal area) migrate to the thoracic duct then from the duct, lymph dumps into the left subclavian vein. The lymph then becomes part of the vascular system and the lymphatic process starts all over again.

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 thoracic duct is the same as in all mammals. It returns lymph to vascular system via the subclavicular veins.

The thoracic duct conveys the lymph from the lower body back into the blood.

Lymphatic vessels drain into the right lymphatic duct. It also drains into the thoracic duct. Lymph moves in response to skeletal muscle contractions.

Thoracic duct, lymph nodes, and lymphatic vessels.

The flow of lymph is always toward the thoracic duct.

Thoracic duct and Right lymphatic duct.The two collecting ducts that drain the lymphatic system are the right and left subclavian veins.Thoracic duct and the right lymphatic duct.

lymph flows in lymphatic system. The flow of lymph is always toward the thoracic duct. Lamph came back to the blood

Yes because you have jugular lymph trunks and subclavian lymph trunks and the bronchomediastianal lymph trunks draining there.

Through the thoracic duct and right lymphatic duct.

The direction of lymph flow is always towards the Thoracic Lymph duct .

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 side of the face. This dumps into the right subclavian vein. The Thoracic Duct drains everything else.

Thoracic duct is a part of Lymphatic System.

The thoracic duct drains the abdomen from both the left and right lumbar trunks. This lymph is also said to be the largest lymphatic vein.

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 thoracic duct drains lymph from similar areas of the body, but on the left side.

Like the arteries and veins which carry blood, the thoracic duct is a vessel belonging to the lymphatic system which transports the lymph from the body and drains in the veins of the neck on the left side
