Introduction: Knowledge of the ramification pattern of the right branch of portal vein is important in right lobectomy and right lobe liver transplant.
Aims and objectives: To find the ramification pattern of right branch of portal vein.
Material and Methods: The study was conducted on 30 formalin fixed liver obtained from adult cadavers from the dissection hall of Department of Anatomy. Right branch of portal vein was exposed by blunt dissection using ‘’finger fracture technique’’ of liver parenchyma along the Cantlie’s plane up to sub-segmental branches.
Results and conclusion: The right branch of portal vein was found to be absent in 23.33% (7 specimens), bifurcated in 33.33% (10 specimens), trifurcated in 40% (12 specimens) and divided into four branches in 3.33% (1 specimen).
Key words: Right branch of portal vein, Ramification pattern, Finger fracture technique, Cantlie’s plane.
