It serves to transfer blood to the liver, where the products of digestion are metabolised and stored. Blood from the liver ultimately drains into the inferior vena cava through the hepatic veins. The portal vein is formed behind the neck of the pancreas by the union of the superior mesenteric and splenic veins.
