Fig. 8. Semi-diagrammatic reconstruction of the veins of the liver of a human embryo 4.3 mm long

Carnegie Embryo (No. 148)

At this time the umbilical veins are broken in their course, having already passed the first stage of their growth, and from now on are destined to pass through the liver rather than past it (fig. 8). It is interesting to note that the primary sinusoidal liver—that portion which arises with the omphalo-mesenteric vein—is formed while the umbilical vein empties directly into the ductus Cuvieri. The process is at its height in an embryo of about the same age (No. 76), as shown in fig. 9 and fig. 10. The growth of the liver around and through the omphalo-mesenteric veins is accompanied by the growth of capillaries from this vein into the new anlage. Hand in hand with this process the circulation through the omphalo-mesenteric veins is further reduced by the growth and enlargement of the umbilical veins.
