What effect would complete obstruction of the pancreatic duct have on?

on the exocrine and endocrine functions.

Honey - The exocrine part of the pancreas is the larger part. It produces enzymes to digest food. Its secretions travel from the pancreas by way of the pancreatic duct into the first part of the small intestine (duodenum) where it mixes with and helps further digest food. If the duct were completely blocked, there would be a backup of secretions which would then begin to kill and destroy exocrine cells, leading to inflammation, acute pancreatitis, possibly pancreatic cysts, and acute abdominal pain.
The endocrine part of the pancreas contains different cells which have the endocrine function of producing insulin needed to digest sugar and prevent diabetes. The insulin does not need a pancreatic duct but slowly oozes out into lymph channels, into the blood circulation, and around the body. Loss of this endocrine tissue leads to high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and diabetes. Blocking the pancreatic duct would not affect this endocrine function.  (+ info)

What is the term of the sticky substance secreted by the naso lacrimal duct?

The lacrimal gland secretes tears, which should not be sticky. If you have sticky discharge in your eyes, this is a sign of infection and you need to see an ophthalmologist or other medical doctor.  (+ info)

i pushed my lacrimal duct in a circular motion. is there a tiny chance of breaking something?

im a 14 year old asian girl (diff. bodies have diff. body systems). i pushed my lacrimal duct 3 time in a circular motion with my thumbs pushing it and my other fingers on my forehead. please someone tell me if there's a chance of a bone being kind of injured. i checked about the lacrimal bone but people told me the lacrimal bone wouldn't be injured. the bones usually wouldn't be injured. my eye bones fine and not injured. can anyone tell me what happened to my eye when i pushed the lacrimal duct? my eye kinda got smaller than before.

How hard did you 'push' into your face? How small did your eye get? Is there any swelling, bruising, disfiguration, or pain? If not, it is more likely that you do not have a fracture. About the lacrimal duct, unless it is inflammed (red/painful/swollen) or have blood or pus coming out from it, usually don't have to worry about it.  (+ info)
