Fetal intrahepatic gallbladder and topographical anatomy of the liver hilar region and hepatocystic triangle.

Abstract

The fetal gallbladder (GB) is embedded in a deep fossa surrounded by the liver parenchyma. Using 15 specimens with intrahepatic GB (crown-rump length 45-92 mm; approximately 9-13 weeks of gestation), we assessed the fetal topographical anatomy of the hepatocystic triangle and the porta hepatis.
