Figure 4: Grossing steps of liver explant (decompensated cirrhosis) a-e: Fresh specimen orientation with probes in the hepatic veins (a), gallbladder removal (b), identification of suture marked porta hepatis structures (c), thin slicing of formalin fixed specimen (d), and sampling and section taken from cut surface (e); Liver explant with HCC in cirrhotic background (f-j): Unfixed specimen with outer surface showing tumour bulge (f), cut surface with single greenish well-circumscribed HCC in left lobe (g), fixed specimen with serial slicing perpendicular to the long axis of explants shows mixed nodularity of outer surface and HCC (h), cut surface showing relation of HCC to the left hepatic vein (i) and to the inked porta (j)
