(2016, 2017, 2018) contributed to the study of the hepatic portal vein as it follows: the left portal branch presents a transverse part (A12.3.12.006) of 3-4 cm long and 12 mm of diameter; it derives from the embryonic portal sinus and emits branches for segment I in 100 %, segment V in 21 % of cases and subsegmental branches for segment IV (square lobe); and another umbilical part (A12.3.12.008) of 1-2 cm long and 10 mm of diameter (it derives from the umbilical vein); both form a 90-degree angle of anterior medial sinus.
