Liver has complex structure of blood vessels. There are two inlets of the blood flow in a liver. One is hepatic artery in which the blood flow from a heart to supply oxygen. Another is portal vein in which the blood flow from the digestive organs to maintain the metabolic and the detoxification processes. These vessels join at hepatic lobule which is consisted by hepatocyte. The hepatic lobule has a central vein and the central veins drain the blood flow into a hepatic vein. The hepatic vein is unique outlet of the blood flow of the liver.
