The peribiliary vascular plexus (PVP) plays an important role in the pathophysiology of the biliary tree. We histologically examined vascular endothelial cells of the intrahepatic PVP in various hepatobiliary diseases by immunohistochemistry and lectin histochemistry with antibodies to factor VIII-related antigens (F-VIII-R-Ag) and Ulex europaeus agglutinin I (UEA-I). The PVP around the intrahepatic large bile ducts (LBDs) and septal bile ducts (SBDs) in normal livers consists of three layers… CONTINUE READING
