Exploration of liver, gall bladder, pancreas, duodenum and spleen
Ligamentum teres and ligamentum venosum; caudate lobe and superior recess of omental bursa
The dissection of the liver has been extended into the right lobe. The fissural surface of the caudate lobe has been exposed by removal of the gastrohepatic part of the lesser omentum which extended into the fissure for the ligamentum venosum to fuse with the ligamentum venosum (3). The view is directed across the stomach from the left side.
