Figure 2: As the HDL approaches the liver, the structures within it become more numerous because of the branching of vessels and the duct and this relationship may change due to many variations in branching. Within the HDL and near the epiploic foramen the CBD and proper hepatic artery lie anterior to the PV and this relationship can be memorized by mnemonic DAVE: Duct, artery, vein, and epiploic foramen. The branching of vessels and the duct from upward from below in a normal person without variations occurs in the order of DAVD: Duct (CBD into cystic duct and CHD), artery (hepatic artery into the right and left branches), vein (PV into the right and left branches) and duct (the CHD into the right and left hepatic ducts). The variations in the branching of the vessels and the duct occur in 10-15% of the persons for CBD into cystic duct and CHD, for 10-15% persons in hepatic artery into the right and left branches, for 10-15% persons in the division of the PV into the right and left branches and for 15-45% for persons in division of CHD into the right and left hepatic ducts. The hepatocystic triangle is indicated by the triangular area
