If the acquisition parameters and timing of the contrast bolus are optimised, this resolution even allows visualisation of a tiny artery.6,7 In classical anatomical arterial pattern, coeliac axis gives rise to left gastric artery
(LGA) and then bifurcates into splenic artery and common hepatic artery (CHA).
The procedure is called left gastric artery
[USA], Nov 27(ANI): Turns out, a novel interventional procedure known as left gastric artery
embolisation, which is generally used to treat obesity, leads to the loss of both fat and muscle.
Left gastric artery
pseudoaneurysm as a sequelae of chronic pancreatitis: recognizing a life-threatening complication.
Among visceral artery aneurysms, left gastric artery
aneurysms are rare (1).
Bleeding from the left gastric artery
was detected by angiography during the active bleeding period in the patient in whom the bleeding source could not be detected by endoscopy.
The other 6 collateral circulations (6/22, 27.3%) were found in the arc of Buhler, splenic artery, jejunal artery, omental artery, hepatic artery, and left gastric artery
Systematic removal of LN station numbers 7 (left gastric artery
), 8a and 8p (common hepatic artery), 9 (celiac artery), 11 (splenic artery), 12a and 12p/b (hepatoduodenal ligament), 13 (retropancreatic), and 14v (superior mesenteric vein) was performed, whereas station 10 (splenic hilum) was removed optionally.
The celiac trunk branched into two vessels: the left gastric artery
and a hepatosplenic trunk, which further divided into splenic and common hepatic arteries (Figure 1).
Open surgery using an anterior approach, a short gastric artery
, and left gastro-epiploic artery attachment increase the risk of splenic infarction.
Two trunks arose separately from a very short CMT: 1) the gastro-splenic trunk divided into the left gastric artery
and the splenic artery; and 2) the hepatomesenteric trunk divided into the common hepatic artery and the superior mesenteric artery.
The other observed variants are the left gastric artery
arising from the abdominal aorta (Figure-3), a very small common hepatic artery bifurcating immediately into the hepatic proper and the gastroduodenal artery (Figure-4) and common coeliac-mesenteric trunk (Figure-3) in 1% each (Figure-5).
