Tumors of the body and tail of the pancreas can engulf the SMA (superior mesenteric artery), splenic artery, and splenic vein. If the splenic vein is compressed, splenomegaly is commonly observed.

The first major lymph nodes to which cancer of the pancreas will metastasize are the celiac nodes (group of pre-aortic nodes).

The lienorenal ligament contains the splenic artery, splenic vein and the tail of the pancreas.
