Biliary Tract
Biliary Tract

The BILE DUCTS and the GALLBLADDER.

Bile Ducts
Bile Ducts

The channels that collect and transport the bile secretion from the BILE CANALICULI, the smallest branch of the BILIARY TRACT in the LIVER, through the bile ductules, the bile ducts out the liver, and to the GALLBLADDER for storage.

Bile Ducts, Intrahepatic
Bile Ducts, Intrahepatic

Passages within the liver for the conveyance of bile. Includes right and left hepatic ducts even though these may join outside the liver to form the common hepatic duct.

Bile Canaliculi
Bile Canaliculi

Minute intercellular channels that occur between liver cells and carry bile towards interlobar bile ducts. Also called bile capillaries.

Bile Ducts, Extrahepatic
Bile Ducts, Extrahepatic

Passages external to the liver for the conveyance of bile. These include the COMMON BILE DUCT and the common hepatic duct (HEPATIC DUCT, COMMON).

Common Bile Duct
Common Bile Duct

The largest bile duct. It is formed by the junction of the CYSTIC DUCT and the COMMON HEPATIC DUCT.

Ampulla of Vater
Ampulla of Vater

A dilation of the duodenal papilla that is the opening of the juncture of the COMMON BILE DUCT and the MAIN PANCREATIC DUCT, also known as the hepatopancreatic ampulla.

Sphincter of Oddi
Sphincter of Oddi

The sphincter of the hepatopancreatic ampulla within the duodenal papilla. The COMMON BILE DUCT and main pancreatic duct pass through this sphincter.

Cystic Duct
Cystic Duct

The duct that is connected to the GALLBLADDER and allows the emptying of bile into the COMMON BILE DUCT.

Hepatic Duct, Common
Hepatic Duct, Common

Predominantly extrahepatic bile duct which is formed by the junction of the right and left hepatic ducts, which are predominantly intrahepatic, and, in turn, joins the cystic duct to form the common bile duct.

Gallbladder
Gallbladder

A storage reservoir for BILE secretion. Gallbladder allows the delivery of bile acids at a high concentration and in a controlled manner, via the CYSTIC DUCT to the DUODENUM, for degradation of dietary lipid.
