Left Hepatic Artery

Last Updated: Jun 10, 2015

The left hepatic artery provides blood to the quadrate and left lobes of the liver, in addition to part of the caudate lobe. It’s part of the proper hepatic artery. The porta hepatis inferior helps it get to the liver to the left portal vein. From here it rises inside the fossa for the ligamentum venosum. It then separates to serve the lateral segments of the liver’s left lobe.
