Peritoneal ligaments of liver

Hey guys.. Wanna learn about the peritoneal ligaments of liver?

They support our liver.. Along with the hepatic veins draining into the Inferior Vena Cava and tone of the abdominal muscles.

My handwriting is really sucky.. So lemme just help you read =D


The falciform ligament ascends from the umbilicus to the liver.
It has a free margin that contains ligamentum teres.

It passes to the anterior and superior surface
and splits into anterior coronary ligament and left triangular ligament.

The right extremity of the coronary ligament is known as the right triangular ligament.
The pertioneal layers of the coronary ligament are widely separated and leaves an area devoid of peritoneum - bare area of the liver.

The lesser omentum arises from the edges of porta hepatis and fissure for ligamentum venosum
and passes into the lesser curvature of the stomach.

These are from my notes.. They are really bad.. *embarrassed*
I uploaded them anyway..

Thank you so much for reading =]
