SAPNA, M; SHETTY, Surekha D  y  NAYAK B, Satheesha. A Study on the Number and Arrangement of the Structures Passing Through the Porta Hepatis in South Indian Population. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.1, pp.164-168. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022015000100026.

The porta hepatis of the liver is a very important area surgically. The knowledge of the variations in the structures passing through the porta hepatis might be of great help in reducing the risks of surgery in this area. In the current study 59 livers from South Indian cadavers were observed for the number and arrangement of the structures passing through the porta hepatis. In all the livers the portal vein was posteriormost and the hepatic duct was the anteriormost structure. The hepatic artery and its branches were in between the duct and the vein. The mean weight of the liver was 1.025 kg. The mean length of porta hepatis was 4.825 cm and the mean breadth was 2.433 cm. The number varied from one to three for the duct and vein but for the artery it was between one and four. In 51% of livers, only one vein and in 80% of cases only one duct passed through the porta hepatis. In 56% of cases two arteries passed through the porta hepatis.
