Here we just have a schematic which
is going through the various branches
that come from the coeliac trunk that I have
already spoken about. So we have seen the coeliac trunk
that's coming at T12. That gives rise to three
branches. It gives rise to the left gastric
the splenic and the common hepatic.
The left gastric may give rise to an oesophageal
branch that runs up and supplies the oesophagus
We can see that the common hepatic artery
this is going to divide into the gastroduodenal artery,
which we spoke about, and the hepatic artery proper.
It’s the hepatic artery proper that is going
to supply the gallbladder via the cystic artery.
It goes to supply the liver via
the right and left hepatic arteries.
And it gives rise to the right gastric.
And it’s the right gastric and the
left gastric that run along the lesser curvature
of stomach, the lesser curvature of the stomach.
If we go to the gastroduodenal artery, we
know that gastroduodenal artery gives rise
to the superior pancreatcioduodenal
which then has its anterior
and its posterior branches that go anterior
and posterior to the head of the
pancreas and the duodenum. It also gives
rise to the right gastroomental artery.
And the right gastroomental artery is going to
run along the greater curvature of the stomach;
where it anastamoses with
the left gastroomental artery.
And we know the left gastroomental artery
comes from the splenic.
So we can see we have these anastomotic loops,
two of them, originating
from the coeliac trunk that goes
around the stomach. We have one left gastric
right gastric, hepatic artery proper,
common hepatic back to the coeliac trunk.
We then have a second which is
the splenic, left gastroomental
right gastroomental, gastroduodenal
comon hepatic, coeliac trunk.
We have two anastomotic loops
running around the stomach.
