The liver has been an organ of puzzle for hundreds of years. Slowly yet definitely its secrets and techniques were disclosed via either simple learn and clinically orientated investigators whose present strategies were introduced jointly during this publication by way of authors from 5 various nations. 3 significant teams with many subgroups have made inroads into our higher knowing of the liver. the 1st of those includes the fundamental scientists whose research of unmarried hepatocytes may supply the main to comprehension of mechanisms that would lead ultimately to development within the morbidity and mortality linked to a number of hepatic problems. the second one crew has been considering experiences extensive of the liver's reaction to numerous hormones, medicinal drugs, viruses, and infections. either early and past due effects are their quandary within the prognosis and remedy of the person sufferer. a 3rd workforce includes the surgeons who've turn into more and more competitive within the elimination of 1 or extra segments of the liver. they've got elevated the scope of hepatic resection because of a greater realizing won from experiences of assorted segments of the liver. they've got accredited the time period, segmentectomy, and feature prolonged possible approaches to incorporate trisegmentectomy. certainly, trans­ plantation of the liver has been effectively accomplished.

Example text

As a consequence of such chemical and/or mechanical dissociation, hepatocytes tend to preserve their original shape and size, as when they were part of liver lobules. Therefore the surface heterogeneity displayed by isolated hepatocytes in SEM preparations, despite slight alterations produced dur- ing preparation, essentially reflects the original position of single cells in hepatic tissue. This is likely the result of mechanical and functional factors [14]. SEM observations of single cells correlate well with the findings of quantitative stereological methods in which the structural heterogeneity of a population of liver cells is related to functional differences with respect to the topographical localization of the cells in the lobule [18].

Because these recesses and channels are interrupted only where two hepatocytes are closely attached to form a bile canaliculus, they actually extend the subendothelial Disse spaces into a continuous labyrinthine system of intercellular spaces [61]. Into the Disse spaces are projected the hepatocyte microvilli. They contain a variable amount of fine collagen fibers there isolated or associated in bundles. In normal conditions, fat-storing cells (cells of Ito and Nemoto) and other pericytes (fibroblasts/fibrocytes) are occasionally encountered on the tissue side of the endothelium from where they extend their slender projections into the Disse \recesses (Fig.

30, 37]. Correlated TEM and SEM studies are a valuable approach to a systematic study of these morphodynamic aspects in pathology [30, 31, 33, 36, 38]. 4. 5-I,um). The microvilli of the wider peripheral bile canaliculi are less numerous and often appear in association with intralobular ductules (of Hering), which are always lined by small cuboidal epithelial cells that are clearly different from hepatocytes. The large peripheral bile channels are connected to the epithelial ducts of Hering through irregular diverticula of their wall (Fig.
