In the same study the hepatic venous waveform was recorded from the middle hepatic vein at a point 23 cm away from the inferior vena cava; this is the same method that we employed in our study as well.
They traced the problem to small branches of the middle hepatic vein that had been truncated in the donated liver.
As a result of this technique and as a result of what we have learned with this, we can now do selective reconstruction of those branches that drain from the front part of the right lobe of the liver into the middle hepatic vein," Dr.
Gross angles between the right and middle hepatic vein and middle and left hepatic vein was measured after putting thin iron wires (0.
9: Axial diagram of the liver at the level of the confluence of the hepatic veins shows the dotted lines drawn from the confluence of the middle hepatic vein (MHV) or right hepatic vein (RHV) and the IVC straight through each hepatic vein.
Only in one liver the angle between right & middle hepatic vein was 130 degrees in gross.
