The liver of geese bile ducts and its blood supply was demonstrated on ten specimens of adult healthy geese of different sex. The bile ducts were three; hepatoenteric, hepatocystic and cysticoenteric. The longer hepatoenteric duct was oriented by right, left and cranial hepatic dacutules distributed in the liver consistency. The cysticoenteric duct opens with the hepatoenteric duct in the duodenal papilla. The arterial supply of the liver goose is oriented by one right and two left hepatic arteries. The right hepatic artery branched into four craniodorsal, one caudoventral and anastomotic branch with the left hepatic artery. The left hepatic arteries arborized by one craniodorsal, two lateral and two caudoventral vessels. The intrahepatic venous drainage of the liver goose was established by hepatic portal and hepatic venous systems. The right hepatic portal vein distributed in the substance of its corresponding lobe where it anasomosed with the left hepatic portal vein via transverse part and gave off cranial, lateral and caudal tributaries. The left hepatic portal vein continued in the left lobe of liver detaching the common trunk of the cranial, lateral and caudal. The caudal vena cava was recieved blood via the middle hepatic vein and two main tributaries; right and left hepatic. Each vein it drained by craniodorsal, caudodorsal and ventral branches.
