BACKGROUND Right-sided ligamentum teres (RSLT) is a congenital anomaly that is sometimes encountered during hepatobiliary surgeries. However, a valid protocol for describing the segmental anatomy of livers with RSLT has not been established, and confusions or anatomic misunderstandings have been a major problem. METHODS The vascular architecture and morphological characteristics were investigated in 35 livers with RSLT using three-dimensional (3D) simulations. RESULTS Couinaud's four… CONTINUE READING
