Liver, stomach, duodenum, pancreas and spleen

The stomach is turned upside down showing, along the greater curvature, the gastro-epiploic vessels and, on the lesser curvature, the gastric vessels. The duodenum is open; inside we can see the circular folds (or valves of Kekring). At the top we find the liver, which has been raised, to demonstrate, at its porta hepatis, the hepatic artery, the portal vein already divided into its branches (the left one is open) and the two roots of the common hepatic ducts.

Inside its fossa the gallbladder is shown, which then continues with the cystic duct that forms the bile ducts by joining the hepatic duct. At the bottom we find the pancreas where the main excretory duct (Wirsung’s) is demonstrated. Finally, to the left, partly hidden by the stomach and the tail of the pancreas, we can notice the spleen.
