Abstract

Here we present a unique case of variation in the branching pattern of the coeliac trunk. In the present case,the coeliac trunk was replaced by two separate arterial trunks. The first arterial trunk bifurcated into the left gastric and the left hepatic arteries. The second arterial trunk bifurcated into a splenic artery and a hepato-gastroduodenal trunk. The hepatogastroduodenal trunk presented an unusual course and termination. The right hepatic artery arising from the hepatogastroduodenal trunk also showed a variant course. Such rare variations are important for gastroenterological surgeons and interventional radiologists due to increase in number of transplantation surgeries and live donor liver transplantations.
