Respiratory modulations are evident. ● The gallbladder may be ‘folded’ (the so-called Phrygian cap). To interrogate its contents fully, unfold it by turning the patient decubitus (right side raised), almost prone or erect (Fig. 30). ● Bowel gas over the fundus can also be moved by various patient positions. Normal variants of the gallbladder The mesenteric attachment of the gallbladder to the inferior surface of the liver is variable in length. This gives rise to large variations in position; at one end of the spectrum the gallbladder, attached only at the neck, may be fairly remote from the liver, even lying in the pelvis; at the other the gallbladder fossa deeply invaginates the liver and the gallbladder appears to lie ‘intrahepatically’ enclosed on all sides by liver tissue.

In 15–35% of patients the left hepatic vein (LHV) and middle hepatic vein (MHV) are separate. This usually has no significance to the operator. However, it may be a significant factor in planning and performing hepatic surgery, especially tumour resection, as the surgeon attempts to retain as much viable hepatic tissue as possible with intact venous outflow (Fig. 4 Haemodynamics of the liver Pulsed and colour Doppler to investigate the hepatic vasculature are now established aids to diagnosis in the upper abdomen.
