  4. Introduction The intestine plays an important role in the digestion and absorption of various nutrients. Small intestine : chemical digestion and absorption. Large intestine: absorption of water and excretion. Intestinal juice- Succus entericus - is derived from the intestinal glands/ crypts of lieberkuhn and duodenal glands. Intestinal juice contains hormones, digestive enzymes, mucus substances to neutralize hydrochloric acid coming from the stomach. The mucus secreted by the goblet cells lubricates and protects the mucosa. (Frandson, 1986, Getty 2012)

  5. Intestine : The part of alimentary canal which extend from pylorus of stomach to anus . It consist of two parts: Proximal part- small lumen Small intestine Distal part -wider lumen- Large intestine Small intestine: Part of the gastrointestinal tract between the stomach and large intestine. 3- distinct regions duodenum, jejunum, and ileum. The first part duodenum is attached by a short fold, the Mesoduodenum, while remainder is attached by Mesentery and is divided into jejunum and ileum. The line of demarcation is arbitrarily set at the free edge of the ileocecal fold. The duodenum is initimately related postionally with liver to which it is connected by Hepatoduodenal ligament. Duodenum also receives bile duct and pancreatic duct.

  6. large intestine: Extend from the termination of ileum to anus. It is divided into cecum, colon, and rectum. Cecum is a blind sac with an opening into beginning of the colon. Colon begins at cecocolic orifice to rectum at pelvic inlet. There is no line of demarcation between colon and rectum; the plane of pelvic inlet may be demarcation line. Rectum is extends from pelvic inlet to anus. Anus- terminal part , below root of tail

  7. Gross Anatomy: Ruminants Topography: lies entirely to right side of median plane chiefly in contact with right face of rumen and attached to sub lumber region by common mesentery. Small intestine: Convoluted tube extend from pylorus to ileo-cecal orifice. Biometry: Average length: 39-42 meters Duodinum- about 1.2 meters Jejunum- about 38-40 meters (longest segment) Ileum- about: 0.8 meters Average Diameter: 5-6 cm The jejunum was the longest and widest segment of small intestine.

  8. Duodinum Three parts: 1.Cranial part- form Ansa sigmoidea S-shaped curve on visceral surface of liver. 2. Descending part: goes up to almost tubercoxae and form caudal/illiac flexor. Passing right to left around root of mesentery. . 3. Ascending part: extend forward and terminate at duodenojejunal flexor which lies on left side of cranial mesenteric artery.

  9. -Bile duct opens in 2nd curve of ansa sigmoidea, 50-60 cm from pyloric end. -Pancreatic duct opens 80- 90 cm from pylorus or 30 cm further back from bile duct. -In sheep/ goat bile and pancreatic duct join together and open into duodenum about 25-40/20 cm from pylorus.

  10. Jejunum Arranged in numerous very close coils, U shaped tubular loops/ festoons by attachment of mesentery. Lies chiefly in space bounded medially by right face of ventral sac of rumen and right abdominal wall, dorsally by large intestine and anteriorly by omasum and abomasum

  11. Ileum Terminal part of jejunum leave the edges of mesentery and runs forward between cecum and colon. Line of demarcation between cecum and colon is opening of ileum into cecum.

  12. Large Intestine : 10-11 meters Avg diameter- 15 cm Lies between layers of common mesentery in the dorsal part of the right half of the abdominal cavity. Caecum: (0.8m in length and 12 cm in diameter) cylindrical blind sac goes up to pelvic inlet 2 orifices- ileocaecal small, caecocolic- large Caecum is directely continuous infront with usually near ventral end of last rib.

  13. Colon 10 meter in length, 12 cm in diameter which diminishes in course of proximal loop up to 5 cm largest part of Large Intestine From caecocolic orifice to rectum lies between layers of mesentery ,coiled upon itself in such a manner as to form number of elliptical convulsions. 3 parts Ascending (loop part)- longest part Transverse part Descending part

  14. C A. Ascending colon : a.Proximal loop: runs Cranially- Caudally -Cranially -Ventrally b.Spiral loop: 2 centripital coils, a central flexur and 2 centrifugal coils ( in sheep/ goat :3-3) Form a disc shape situated in right lateral upper abdomen c.

  39. Attachments :ox Duodenum: Cranial part of duodenum- lesser omentum Descending part and caudal flexure attach dorsally to mesoduodenum and descending part attached ventrally to superficial wall of omental bursa. Ascending part attached to descending colon by duodenocolic ligament and to proximal and distal loop of ascending colon by adhesions around root of mesentery. Jejunum: Usually lies in supraomental recess (mesenteries) Ileum : Cranial part is adherent to cecum. Cecum : Cranial 2/3rd adherent to right side of mesentery. Dorsally to proximal loop of colon by cecocolic fold, ventrally to ileum by ileocecal fold. Colon : Spiral loop lies in between layers of mesentery. The proximal and distal loop and cranial part of descending colon adherent to cranial part of cecum and ascending duodenum in a fat filled mass around root of mesentery. Rectum: A short mesorectum near sacral promontary.

  40. Attachments :Horse Duodenum/ fixed part : by mesoduodenum, cranial part to liver and descending part to right dorsal colon, base of cecum, right kidney and sublumbar muscles. Jejunum and ileum /mesenteric part: by mesentery to dorsal abdominal wall. Ileocecal fold attaches ileum to lesser curvature of cecum. . Cecum : Base attach dorsally by connective tissue and peritoneum on ventral surface of pancrease and right kidney. Body attached dorsolaterally to first part of colon by cecocolic fold. Apex is free. Colon : Right ventral part of great colon attached to lesser curvature of cecum by 2 layers of peritoneum, which form cecocolic fold. Right parts and left parts are united by peritoneum on either side. The transverse colon attached by peritoneum to pancrease dorsally and base of cecum laterally. Small colon attach to sublumber region by mesocolon and to termination of duodenum by narrow duodenocolic fold. Rectum: Mesorectum , continuation of mesocolon.

  41. Vessels and Nerve Small intestine: (beginning of duodenum is supplied by branches of Celiac artery. Other portion is supplied by Cranial mesenteric artery). Cranial part of duodenum- right gastric and right gastroepiploic artery Descending part- cranial and caudal pancreatoduodenal artery Ascending part- branch of cranial mesenteric artery from left side and from middle colic artery Jejunum jejunal arteries (branches of cranial mesenteric artery). In ox a collateral branch originates from concave surface of cranial mesenteric artery and passes obliquely across the mesentery to rejoin the cranial mesenteric artery. Collateral branch absent in sheep and goat. Ileum 2 arteries: ramus ilei mesenterialis come from ileocolic artery and ramus ilei antimesenterialis is termination of cecal artery. Both of which anastomose with terminal branches of cranial mesenteric artery. Veins of small intestine are generally satellites of arteries but gastroduodinal and caudal mesenteric vein are branches of portal vein which extends from liver to terminal branches, the cranial and caudal mesenteric veins.

  42. Large intestine: (cranial and caudal mesenteric arteries) Small middle colic artery arise from cranial surface of cranial mesenteric artery and supply transverse and descending colon. The ileocolic/ileocecocolic artery is a large trunk that gives colic branch which supply proximal, distal and coiled loop Cecal artery runs in ileocecal fold, supplies the cecum and ileum. Branches of ileocolic vein are satellites of branches of ileocolic artery. The caudal mesenteric vein gives off middle colic and left colic veins. Rectum: cranial rectal artery from caudal mesenteric artery and by several short middle rectal branches from urogenital artery. The anal canal supplied by terminal branches of cranial and middle rectal artery. Nerve supply The intestine gets sympathetic fibres from celiac, cranial mesenteric and caudal mesenteric ganglions and parasympathetic fibres from vagus and pelvic splanchnic nerves. Rectum also innervated by caudal rectal nerve.
