Left Lobe of the Liver

The Liver is divided into anatomical right and Left Lobes by the line of attachment of the gastrohepatic and falciform ligaments. The liver is divided into physiological (functional) right and left lobes by a sagittal line passing through the fossa of the gallbladder and the sulcus of the inferior vena cava (together, referred to as the right sagittal fossa). The fissure for the ligamentum venosum and the fissure for the ligamentum teres comprise the left sagittal fissure.
