Friday 11 November 2005

Definition: The cardiac mucosa is the type of mucosa that lines the region of the cardia. It has antral-like glands, but unlike antral mucosa, there are no G cells. Scattered oxyntic glands may be present in the most distal portions of the cardia where it merges with the corpus.
