Liver Structure

This cartoon shows the portal venue to central vein flow within the liver subunit structure.

Dual blood supply of the liver merges upon entry into the liver lobule at the portal field.

1. branches of the portal vein

2. branches of the hepatic artery

  • Blood flows along the sinusoid and exits at the central vein.


  • Bile flows in the opposite direction.


Kupffer cells - stellate macrophage cells named after Karl Wilhelm von Kupffer (1829 - 1902) a German anatomist who originally identified these cells.
