Figure 3 Variations of the right hepatic vein. Coronal view of reconstructed computed tomography images demonstrating showing that the right hepatic venous confluence (orange) receives posterioinferior tributaries (PITs) from segment VI and anteromedial tributaries (AMTs) from segments V and VIII. It continues cephalad as the superior right hepatic vein (SRHV), that which consistently receives a posterolateral tributary (PLT) from segment VII. The main trunk of the RHV then empties directly into the inferior vena cava (IVC) at the hepatocaval junction. The portal vein (PV) is also visible in this reconstruction.
