Caption: Abdominal veins. Historical illustration of the veins of the abdomen. The veins are coloured blue, showing that they carry deoxygenated blood. The portal vein of the liver (upper left) drains the other abdominal veins. These include the gastric vein from the stomach (upper right), the splenic vein from both the spleen (lower right of stomach) and the pancreas (horizontal, below stomach), and the mesenteric veins (centre left and right) from the small and large intestines (coiled in lower abdomen). The gall bladder (pear-shaped) is also seen by the liver at upper left. Colour lithograph by Fairland from The Vessels of the Human Body, 1837. Based on drawings by J. Swandale.
