This hepatic diverticulum extends into the septum transversum, where it enlarges and divides into two parts: the larger cranial portion (Pans hepatica), which further divides to form the liver cells and intrahepatic biliary apparatus of the right and left hepatic lobes, and the smaller caudal portion (Pars cystica), which gives rise to the gallbladder and the cystic duct.
