It is through these villi that the digested food passes into the blood.
Between the villi are found the openings of the intestinal glands.
The edge was covered with branched villi, while in the centre of each of the flattened surfaces there was a spot free from villi.
villi are seen surrounded with the openings of the tubular glands.
The villi are hypertrophied, looking often like minute polypi.
The villi are peculiar to these parts; they are inversely conical, adhering to the membrane by their smaller end.
No details are given as to the structure of the chorion or the presence of villi upon it.
Injections made retrograde from the thoracic duct, pass through the villi into the intestines.
The chemically-changed chyme is now termed Chyle, and is ready to be absorbed by the minute, projecting villi.
The villi are arranged in ridges which radiate from a non-villous longitudinal strip on the concave surface of the chorion.
