Relation Between Liver Segments and Vessels

Each segmental branch feeds its corresponding segment. The main hepatic vein consists of two main branches, right and middle. Each hepatic vein is located on the respective intersegmental plane between the right and middle segments and the left and middle segments.

The right hepatic vein acts as a draining vein for the right and middle segments, while the middle hepatic vein acts as a draining vein for the left and middle segments.
