Abstract

The distribution of the ramus principalis sinister of lhe biliary ducts of 40 adult females of Jaffarabadi breed buffaloes was studied after latex Neoprenie 650 and Celobar injections through theductus choledochus. Following fixation in 10% formaldehyde solution, radiograms were taken from the specimens and then dissected. The ramus principalis sinister is formed usually by several roots, ramus medialis lobi sinistri, truncus intermediomedialis, truncus intermediolateralis, ramus lateralis lobi sinistri. In addition, innominate tributaries originating from the lobus caudatus (pars supraportalis), lobus sinister (medial, intermediate and lateral territories), lobus quadratus and lobus dexter. In a few cases the ramus principalis sinister had components inter-related or related to the vesica fellea.
