32

Into which lymph vessel does lymph from the right arm and right half of the head drain? What is the lymph drainage for the rest of the body?

Right lymphatic duct; the rest of the body drains via the thoracic duct

33

On endoscopy, a patient is noted to have a duodenal tumor. Is screening of more than one lymph node territory required?

Yes, as celiac lymph nodes drain upper duodenum and superior mesenteric lymph nodes drain lower duodenum, both should be investigated

34

A patient has thrombosis in the proximal part of the left subclavian vein, where it meets the aorta. Where do you expect to see edema occur?

The entire body except for right half above the diaphragm (drained by right lymphatic duct), as flow in the thoracic duct is likely impaired
