Abstract

We examined 27 resin casts of foetal liver veins and found three types of connection between portal vein and portal sinus. The most frequent connection was endo–lateral (66.7%), when the end of the portal vein joins with the lateral wall of the portal sinus. The next type was latero–lateral (14.8%). In this type, the lateral walls of the portal sinus and the portal vein join together. The last type was latero–lateral through short vessel (18.5%), which resembles the previous one, but there is short vessel between the lateral walls of the portal vein and sinus.
