The arterial and venous circulation of the bowel is complex, which provides a rich blood supply to aid in the digestive process and also serves to protect the bowel from potential ischemia or infarction. Right gastric artery (RGA) supplies the body of stomach from the right margin of the lesser omentum and also supplies the pyloric part of stomach. Knowledge of RGA origin variation is helpful for surgeons who are operating near lesser omentum and pyloric part of stomach. RGA usually arises from proper hepatic artery, but in our observation we found that RGA was arising directly from celiac trunk. If knowledge of this kind of observation will prevent complications like operative and post operative hemorrhages. Knowledge of RGA variations will be helpful during embolisation of RGA in patents undergoing hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy.

Abstract


The arterial and venous circulation of the bowel is complex, which provides a rich blood supply to aid in the digestive process and also serves to protect the bowel from potential ischemia or infarction. Right gastric artery (RGA) supplies the body of stomach from the right margin of the lesser omentum and also supplies the pyloric part of stomach. Knowledge of RGA origin variation is helpful for surgeons who are operating near lesser omentum and pyloric part of stomach. RGA usually arises from proper hepatic artery, but in our observation we found that RGA was arising directly from celiac trunk. If knowledge of this kind of observation will prevent complications like operative and post operative hemorrhages. Knowledge of RGA variations will be helpful during embolisation of RGA in patents undergoing hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy.
