PORTAL SYSTEM MODEL
- The model depicts how the portal venous system is responsible for directing blood from parts of the gastrointestinal tract to the liver.
- Large veins that are considered part of the portal venous system include the Hepatic portal vein, Splenic vein, Superior mesenteric vein and the Inferior mesenteric vein.
- Thus the model is a useful aid in teaching the unique blood flow of the liver.
- It is mounted on a base and numbered with an English key card.
