Meaning of Duodenum
The duodenum is the first section of the small intestine in most higher vertebrates, including mammals, reptiles, and birds. In fish, the divisions of the small intestine are not as clear, and the terms anterior intestine or proximal intestine may be used instead of duodenum. - See link


Duodenum in Spanish is Duodeno
En el sistema digestivo, el duodeno es la parte del intestino delgado que conecta el estómago con el yeyuno. El término duodeno procede del latín duodenum digitorum, esto es porque los antiguos anatomistas decían que medía doce traveses de dedos, es decir unos 25 centímetros. - See link
