The anatomy of the caudate lobe has technical and possibly oncologic implications for surgeons. The complex anatomy of the lobe is clarified by embryologic and anatomic analysis. This posterior sector is embryonically and anatomically independent of the right and left liver and the main portal fissure. The caudate lobe represents the only part of the liver that is in contact with the vena cava, except at the entrance of the main hepatic veins into the vena cava, and provides an anastomosis… CONTINUE READING
