Approximately one third of the body's blood supply passes through the liver each minute [1], and the majority of the blood flow is derived from the portal circulation. As blood enters the liver, it is distributed through the hepatic sinusoids, which are lined by a uniquely fenestrated endothelium interspersed with resident hepatic macrophages, also known as Kupffer cells.
