hepatic duct n.
Left hepatic duct.
Right hepatic duct.
The entrance of the hepatic duct separates fore- and midgut.
The gall-bladder was empty; the hepatic duct was lacerated, and contained pouches in which gall-stones were encysted.
The gall-bladder may be present or absent; it is always a diverticulum of the hepatic duct.
The duct of this portion empties in common with the hepatic duct into the duodenum.
(Fig. 101), by the origin of the hepatic duct from the intestinal tube.
The ventral (distal) outgrowth is double, the two portions proceeding symmetrically from each side of the hepatic duct.
The stomach, when it develops, is situated cephalad of the entrance of the hepatic duct into the intestine.
The two principal secondary branches of the hepatic duct give origin to sprouts or buds.
