Immediately before reaching the liver, the portal vein divides into left portal vein (supplying liver segments II, III, IV) and the right portal vein.
The normal anatomy of the portal vein is defined as a division of the main portal vein into two branches-the left (supplying segments II, III, and IV) and right portal veins; the right dividing secondarily into two branches-the anterior (supplying segments V and VIII) and the posterior (supplying segments VI and VII) portal veins. Variants are frequent and account for 20 to 35% of the population. The most frequent variants are portal trifurcation with division of the main portal vein into the left, right anterior, and posterior branches, and the early origin of the right posterior branch directly from the portal vein.
