- Intrahepatic bile ducts
They can be divided into large and small ducts. Examples include:
- Large: left and right hepatic ducts
- Small: interlobular bile ducts
Alternatively, they may refer to the ducts found between the interlobular bile ducts and the left and right hepatic ducts. The epithelium of these ducts is described as simple columnar epithelium with dense fibroelastic connective tissue and smooth muscle.
