They are encased by the hyperechoic, fibrous walls of the portal tracts, which make them stand out from the rest of the parenchyma. Also contained in the portal tracts are a branch of the hepatic artery and a biliary duct radical. These latter vessels are too small to detect by ultrasound in the peripheral parts of the liver, but can readily be demonstrated in the larger, proximal branches (Fig. 19). At the porta, the hepatic artery generally crosses the anterior aspect of the portal vein, with the common duct anterior to this (Fig.
Occasionally a stone may become impacted in the neck, and movement of the patient is unable to dislodge it. Stones lodged in the gallbladder neck or cystic duct may result in a permanently contracted Stones may pass from the gallbladder into the common duct, or may develop de novo within the common duct. Stones in the CBD may obstruct the drainage of bile from the liver, causing obstructive jaundice. Due to shadowing from the duodenum, ductal stones are often not demonstrated with ultrasound without considerable effort.
Abnormalities of the hepatic vein waveform are therefore highly unspecific and should be taken in context with the clinical picture. As you might expect, the pulsatile nature of the spectrum decreases towards the periphery of the liver, remote from the IVC. 21 The relationship of the biliary duct to the portal vein varies as the vessels become more peripheral. In (A) the duct lies anterior to the LPV; in (B) the duct is posterior to the LPV. from the right intercostal space to maintain a low angle with the vessel.
