Segmental hepatic artery at hepatic hilar area. Analysis by 3 dimensional integrated image of artery, portal vein and bile duct

Journal Article:

Abstract

Multiple individual variations in running and bifurcation of the hepatic artery, biliary duct and portal vein are known in hepatic hilar area. This paper describes the examination of such arterial variations by integrating the 3D images of those vessels obtained by multidetector-row CT (MDCT). Subjects are findings from 64 patients with cholangiocarcinoma, hepatocarcinoma or cholelithiasis. MDCT dynamic scanning, and percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage-CT and/or drip infusion cholangiography-CT with the intravenous iopamidol and/or iotroxate megulumin, were done with GE LightSpeed Ultra 16 slice type equipment to compose the 3D images. Arterial variants of the bifurcation in the right and left lobe were found to be 18 cases/62 (29%) and 13/64 (20%), respectively. The left artery running at right side of portal venous umbilical region was seen in 9/64 (14%) and right artery running ''northward'', in 9/62 (14%). Previous realization of such individual 3D arterial variations as above is necessary for the precise microsurgery of the hilar area to preserve the essential vessel. (T.I.)
