Calot's triangle vs Cholecystohepatic triangle

Hello Awesomites!

I would like to highlight difference between these two terms. It is confusing.

1.Cholecystohepatic triangle:

Medial boundary- Common hepatic duct
Inferior boundary- Cystic duct
Superior boundary- Inferior edge of liver

2. Calot's triangle:

Medial boundary- Common hepatic duct
Inferior boundary- Cystic duct
Superior boundary- Cystic artery

Happy Studying!

  1. It is an outdated concept.
    Now the overall triangle is considered as Calot's only.

    1. Well, it's important to know the history and how the triangles were originally described by Jean-Fran├žois Calot even though now a days, the terms are used interchangeably.
