The thoracic duct delivers lymph into junction between left subclavian and left internal jugular veins. Right lymphatic duct delivers lymph into junction between right subclavian and right internal jugular veins. What is a lymphatic duct?Where does the thoracic duct begin?
Where does the thoracic duct originate? The thoracic duct originates in the abdomen from the confluence of the right and left lumbar trunks and the intestinal trunk, forming a significant pathway upward called the cisterna chyli.What vessels does the thoracic duct drain into?
The thoracic duct usually starts from the level of the twelfth thoracic vertebrae (T12) and extends to the root of the neck. It drains into the systemic (blood) circulation at the junction of the left subclavian and internal jugular veins, at the commencement of the brachiocephalic vein.
