point at which bile ducts exit from the liver and blood supply enters
dual blood
enters at hilus
portal vein
brings nutrient laden blood to the liver
hepatic artery
brings oxygenized blood to the liver
liver functions
excretory, bile it produces, metabolic- processing of food and metabolism of carbs, fats, and protein, storage- storing carbohydrates and lipids, synthetic- synthesis of all major plasma proteins except immunoglobins, detoxification- drugs, hormones, cytokins and metabolites
portal hypertension
caused by obstructed blood flow through the liver
veins connected by an opening due to surgery or hypertension
portal hypertension

liver pain
liver is loosely connected and easily transplanted, covered with Glissons capsule which has many nerves, congestion may cause dull and diffuse pain.
disruption of bilirubin processing, produces brown urine, tumors of the head of liver may occlude bile duct
caused from bile and can result in cholecystitis or obstruction

from alpha cells, stimulates liver to convert glycogen to glucose, raises blood sugar levels
enzyme that forms delta cells, an inhibiting hormone to maintain homeostasis
carcinoma of pancreas
difficult to detect early enough to effectively treat
pancreatic necrosis
state which causes release of pancreatic enzymes into the blood
premature activation of pancreatic enzymes causes destruction of the pancreatic tissue and creation of psuedocysts
alcohol abuse induced state of the pancreas
