Abstract The hilar bifurcation (HB), a wedged portion between the left and right portal vein origins, often issues the caudate branch. However, the HB territory in the caudate lobe has not been well recognized during liver surgery. In 50% of 48 human livers (25 usual livers and 23 with the external caudate notch), the HB gave off thick portal branches (> 1 mm) to supply the caudate lobe. Using minute dissections, we identified four cross-sectional configurations of three subdivisions of the… CONTINUE READING
