The Liver: Morphology, Biochemistry, Physiology, Volume I focuses on the advancement of knowledge on the liver under normal and pathological conditions, as revealed by morphological and physiological studies. The selection first offers information on the embryonic liver and anatomy of the liver, including morphology and physiology of the embryonic liver, histology of the liver, surgical segments, and vascular gross anatomy of the liver. The text then elaborates on the structure of the liver sinusoids and the sinusoidal cells and the cyto- and histochemistry of the liver. Topics include protein reactions, nucleic acids, glycogen, lipids, heavy metals, and morphological aspects of lining cells. The publication examines electron microscopy of the liver; acinar units and the pathophysiology of the liver; and dynamics of circulation in the liver. Discussions focus on oxygen transport and consumption in the liver; experimental alterations of the hepatic circulation; hexagonal pattern and the interdigitation of the afferent and efferent vascular trees; and simple liver acinus. The selection is a dependable source of data for morphologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and clinicians.
