In general, they are more shallow than those in the other parts of the stomach.
They are of two kinds:
- (1) simple tubular glands resembling those of the pyloric end of the stomach, but with short ducts.
- (2) compound racemose glands resembling the duodenal glands.
The cardiac gland is both innervated by the parasympathetic and symapthetic nerve fibres of the autonomic nervous system.
