Inferior view of the liver (English)

Inferior view of the liver (English)

Several vascular and ligamentous structures, together with the gallbladder, form the shape of the letter H on the posteroinferior aspect of the liver. The horizontal limb is represented by the hilum of the liver (porta hepatis), which gives passage to the hepatic portal vein, proper hepatic artery and biliary ducts. The right limb of the H is formed by the groove for inferior vena cava and gallbladder below it. The left limb, which separates the left lobe from the caudate and quadrate lobes, is defined by the fissures for ligamentum venosum and round ligament. Between the porta hepatis and inferior vena cava is the posterior part of the coronary ligament that extends to the right, marking the inferior boundary of the bare area of the liver. Below it on the right lobe are impressions of the suprarenal gland, kidney and hepatic flexure of the colon. The posteroinferior aspect of the left lobe presents a well defined impression of the stomach, while the quadrate lobe is adjacent to the first part of the duodenum.
