Origin Of Left Accessory Hepatic Artery From The Left Gastric Artery

Chaudhari ML**. Maheria PB**, Nerpagar S*, Menezes VR***.

In recent years there has been an increase in number of transplantation surgeries, especially live donor liver transplantation in the western countries. So, anatomical variations of Hepatobiliary vessels gained special attention from anatomists, Gastroenterological surgeons and Interventional radiologists. We report a case of the accessory hepatic artery that arise from the left gastric artery, entered the liver at an independent site from the portahepatis to supply the left lobe of the liver. Transplantation of such livers with multi vascular pedicles may pose a challenge during anastomosis of these accessory hepatic arteries of the donor liver to the nearby arteries of the recipient.[Chudhari ML et al NJIRM 2013; 4(2) : 173-174]

Key words: Hepatic artery; Liver transplantation; Hepatobiliary surgeries; Multivascular pedicles
