Etymologies

sub- +‎ lobular (Wiktionary)

Examples

  • The sublobular veins unite to form larger and larger trunks, and end at last in the hepatic veins, these converge to form three large trunks which open into the inferior vena cava while that vessel is situated in its fossa on the posterior surface of the liver.

    XI. Splanchnology. 2i. The Liver

  • These convey the blood from the circumference to the center of the lobule, and end in the intralobular vein, which runs through its center, to open at its base into one of the sublobular veins.

    XI. Splanchnology. 2i. The Liver

  • At the base of the lobule this vein opens directly into the sublobular vein, with which the lobule is connected.

    XI. Splanchnology. 2i. The Liver

  • If one of the sublobular veins be laid open, the bases of the lobules may be seen through the thin wall of the vein on which they rest, arranged in a form resembling a tesselated pavement, the center of each polygonal space presenting a minute aperture, the mouth of an intralobular vein (Fig. 1089).

    XI. Splanchnology. 2i. The Liver

  • The bases of the lobules are clustered around the smallest radicles (sublobular) of the hepatic veins, to which each is connected (Fig. 1089) by means of a small branch which issues from the center of the lobule (intralobular).
