Definition (MSHCZE) Sběrný prostor pro sekreci ŽLUČE. Žlučník umožňuje řízeným způsobem dodávat žlučové kyseliny ve vysoké koncentraci prostřednictvím vývodu žlučníku (DUCTUS CYSTICUS) do DUODENA za účelem rozkladu jídlem přijatých tuků. žlučník – vakovitý orgán hruškovitého tvaru uložený na spodině jater, sloužící ke skladování a úpravě žluči, která vzniká v játrech. Spolu se žlučovými vývody je ž. součástí žlučových cest. Jeho vývod ductus cysticus ústí do společného žlučovodu ductus choledochus, jímž se žluč dostává do dvanáctníku. Ž. se vyprázdní např. po jídle, zejm. tučném. Není nezbytný k životu ani k trávení potravy. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online 2012, http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/)
