Intestino delgado

El intestino delgado es la porción del sistema digestivo con mayor responsabilidad en la absorción de nutrientes del alimento al torrente sanguíneo. El esfínter pilórico administra el paso parcial del alimento digerido del estómago al duodeno. Esta pequeña porción del intestino delgado está seguida por el yeyuno y el íleon. La válvula ileocecal del íleon pasa el material digerido al intestino grueso.Intestino delgado
