Hepaticae Venae

Cystici Ductus. That side of the body of the gall bladder which lies next the liver, is connected to that gland by a vast number of filaments which run into the substance of the liver; and among these filaments are some ducts which form a communication between the pori biliarii and gall bladder. These ducts are the most numerous about the neck of the gall bladder.

Hepatoce Le

(From Hepatoce Le 4154 and a rupture).

Rupture of the liver. This complaint happens from the liver passing through the relaxed parietes of the abdomen, in the vicinity of the umbilicus, or through the umbilicus itself. This disease may be distinguished by tracing the liver to the part which the tumour occupies; from the parenchymatic firmness of the protuberance, which is sometimes livid; from the absence of those symptoms which point out the enterocele, epiplo-cele, gastrocele, and particularly the hysterocele. The species are distinguished by the situation of the tumour into hepatocele ventralis and umbilicalis. The mode of cure is similar to that of other ruptures, particularly the Gastrocele; q. v.
