24)). 22 The left hepatic vein. Vessel walls are not as reflective as portal veins; however, maximum reflectivity is produced when the beam is perpendicular to the walls, as at the periphery of this vessel. The hepatic artery The main hepatic artery arises from the coeliac axis and carries oxygenated blood to the liver from the aorta. Its origin makes it a pulsatile vessel and the relatively low resistance of the hepatic vascular bed means that there is continuous forward flow throughout the cardiac cycle (Fig.

Could it be bowel-related?

Jaundice, or hyperbilirubinaemia, is an elevated level of bilirubin in the blood. It is recognized by a characteristic yellow coloration of the skin and sclera of the eye, often accompanied by itching if prolonged. Bilirubin is derived from the haem portion of haemoglobin. Red blood cells are broken down in the liver into haem and globin, releasing their bilirubin, which is non-soluble. This is termed unconjugated bilirubin. This is then taken up by the liver cells and converted to a water-soluble form, conjugated bilirubin, which is excreted via the biliary ducts into the duodenum to aid fat digestion.
