Liver from Behind
The liver from the below and behind, showing the whole of the visceral surface and the posterior area of the parietal surface. The portal fissure has been slightly opened up to show the vessels passing through it; the other fissures are represented in their natural condition-closed. In this liver, which was hardeded in situ, the impressions of the sacculations of the colon were distinctly visible at the colic impression. The round ligament and the remains of the ductus venosus are hidden in the depths of their fissures.
