Greater peritoneal sac
Pancreas develops as two outgrowths of the foregut, they are called...
Dorsal and ventral pancreatic buds
What is the effect of gut rotation on the pancreatic buds?
Carries the ventral bud posterior to the dorsal bud and they fuse
The pancreas becomes ... Due to gastric and duodenal rotation and return of midgut to the abdomen from the amniotic cavity
