Distribution of the portal vein in the capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochoeris)
Keywords:Liver, Portal vein, Rodents, Capybaras
AbstractThe portal vein, in the capybara liver, divides into right and left branches. From the right branch originate branches to the medial, lateral and caudate lobes. From the left branch originate branches to the lateral, medial and quadrate lobes. The portal vein, before its division, receives veins from the gallbladder: one vein (71%), two veins (14.2%) or three (14.2%).
