Figure 3.5a-c shows schemas of the ramification patterns of tertiary branches from the segmental branch in each segment. In these schemas, the view would actually be covered by the liver parenchyma and the round ligament is pulled down. In the left segment (Fig. 3.5a), some tertiary branches differ from the left segmental branch in that the branches protrude in several directions, though not down nor back, but somewhat like the needles of a hedgehog. Fig. 3.5b and c show the segmental branches in the middle and the right segments, respectively.
