Uterine tube vessels follow the ovarian artery to reach the pre-aortic and lateral aortic nodes. Some vessels pass to the external iliac nodes from where they reach the lateral aortic nodes. Also, the area of the tubal isthmus, together with the round ligament of the uterus, are drained into the superficial inguinal nodes, from where they reach the external node and the lateral aortic nodes. The pre-aortic nodes pass to the lumbar trunk, while the lateral aortic pass to the lumbar trunk. The two trunks help to form the abdominal confluence of lymph trunks or the cisterna chyli, which enter the thoracic duct.
