The borders of each of the three segments and caudate area are indicated by line A-B in Fig. 2.5. Point A indicates the point of the superior part of the IVC, and point B is the point of bifurcation of the right primary Glissonean pedicle. All segments and the caudate area touch on line A-B. The border between the left segment and the caudate area is determined by the anterior paracaval triangle (triangle ABC in Fig. 2.5). Point C is the root of the left segmental branch.
The border between the right segment and the caudate area is determined by the lateral paracaval triangle (triangle ABD in Fig. 2.5). Point D is the edge of the caudate process.
