Importantly, the arcade, including the GDA-SMA (PDA arcade), SMA-IMA (Riolan arcade or Drummond arcade), and SPA-left gastroepiploic artery, should be carefully attended to during the procedure.
The CTA demonstrated a multi-lobulated, large, sub-hepatic pseudoaneurysm measuring 10 cm x 4.8 cm arising from the gastroduodenal artery/right gastroepiploic artery distribution with adjacent active extravasation (Figure 1).
Conclusions: Total arterial OPCAB with bilateral IMA, radial artery, and right gastroepiploic artery grafting yielded satisfactory early and midterm outcomes in this patient group, without a significant increase in early mortality or morbidity.
We then entered the lesser sac and ligated the right gastroepiploic and right gastric vessels.
An imaging-based diagnosis of venous invasion was established when one of the following criteria were satisfied: 1) tumoral enhancement in the lumen of the vein, 2) tumor protruding through the course of a vein, and 3) distention of the vein due to extension of the gastric tumor Right and left gastric veins, aberrant left gastric vein (ALGV), right and left gastroepiploic veins, superior mesenteric vein (SMV), short gastric veins, and the portal vein were evaluated for tumoral invasion (Figure 1).
(25) reported the successful use of a pedicled gastroepiploic artery as a graft in a child with KD coronary lesions; we also adopted the use of this arterial graft for the distal RCA only, in addition to bilateral ITAs for the proximal RCA and the left coronary arteries (Fig.
Hereby the arterial blood supply to the liver and stomach was enhanced through collateral pathways from the SMA over the pancreaticoduodenal arcades to the GDA, the proper hepatic artery (PHA), the gastroepiploic artery, and the right gastric artery as previously described [23].
LSPDP can be completed in either of two methods: (1) carefully isolating the splenic artery and vein from the pancreas via separating and dividing each of the various small branches between the pancreas and these vessels (Kimura's technique) [10] or (2) taking the splenic artery and vein with the pancreas but cautiously preserving the collateral blood supply of the spleen from the short gastric and left gastroepiploic vessels (Warshaw's approach) [11].
For LSG, the lesser sac was entered by dividing the gastroepiploic vessels along the greater curvature.
The conventional supply to the omentum is by three main arterial branches of the gastroepiploic artery namely, the right, middle, and left omental arteries.
A more complex classification is provided by Vandamme and Bonte who describe bifurcation of the splenic artery into two rami lienalis where the gastroepiploic artery is a collateral of the splenic stem; trifurcation of the splenic artery; truncus lienogastroepiploicus [5].
In Warshaw's technique, the spleen blood supply relies on the short gastric vessels and the left gastroepiploic artery which undertake the arterial flow instead of the ligated splenic vessels [7].
