The caudate, quadrate, and left lobes of the liver are supplied by the left hepatic artery. Cantlie’s line is a line drawn from the left edge of the cystic fossa to the left edge of the caval fossa that defines the physiological boundary between the left liver and right liver.

Portal hypertension may lead to dilated subcutaneous veins radiating in all directions from the umbilicus known as caput medusae. The venous route is as follows: portal vein --> paraumbilical veins --> thoracoepigastric veins (located subcutaneously). Recall that esophageal varices and rectal varices may also develop due to portal hypertension.
