● Posteriorly Ligamentum Venosum and Ligamentum Teres separate it from right lobe from behind.
● Superiorly Left Lobe is modified for Diaphragm and is convex in shape.
● Left Lobe of the Liver has several impressions posteriorly for accommodating different organs.
Gastric Impression for stomach
Esophageal Groove for lower esophagus
Omental Tuberosity is slight elevation between gastric impression and left sagittal fissure which lies over Lesser Omentum
● Left Lobe of the Liver receives blood of intestines in hepatic portal system via Left Hepatic Portal Vein. It gets its blood supply via left branches of Hepatic Artery Proper. Left lobe drains its bile into Left Hepatic Duct.
Left Lobe of the Liver performs the normal functions of the liver as :
- Bile Formation
- Protein and lipid synthesis
- Body metabolism regulation
- Enzyme production
