The TPVns directly connect with the capillary bed in the liver parenchyma, which is referred to as sinusoids. Hepatic arterial blood pours into the hepatic sinusoids not only indirectly via the anastomosis between the THAo and the portal venule (PVn), but also directly through the THAo or the capillaries derived from the arterial capillary… CONTINUE READING
