(2017) found: Arterial irrigation comes from the hepatic artery proper in 70 % of cases; from the hepatic artery proper and a branch of left gastric artery (A12.2.12.013) in 25 %, from the hepatic artery proper plus a branch from left gastric artery plus a branch from superior mesenteric artery (A12.2.12.053) in 3 %, and from the hepatic artery proper and a branch from superior mesenteric artery in 2 %.
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 right portal vein was transected with a vascular staple; the right hepatic artery, vein, and right hepatic canal were saved (Figure 2, 3), and the parenchymal dissection of the right liver lobe was performed with an ultrasonic dissector and isolated with a sterile plastic bag (Figure 4).
Risk factors associated with increased mortality were recipient age >60 years at the time of transplant, operation time >8 hours, development of postoperative biliary leaks and vascular complications, particularly hepatic artery thrombosis.
MS = metal stent, RHA = right hepatic artery, LHA = left hepatic artery, CHA = common hepatic artery, GDA = gastroduodenal artery
The hepatic artery proper, common hepatic duct and hepatic portal vein were blocked using three vascular clips for 60 min (Figure 1C) followed by 120-min reperfusion (Figure 1D).

In instances where the hepatic artery is ligated during surgery or interventional procedures, an environment for fistulization between a high-pressure arterial system and low-pressure biliary tract (i.e., arteriobilious fistula) is created.
Preliminary scintigraphy was performed through a hepatic artery catheter with Technetium99m Macroaggregated Albumin (99mTc-MAA).
To start with, this study does not include either any information as regards the monitoring of portal vein flow and pressure or any measurement of hepatic artery flow and pressure.
Then selective catheterization of the celiac trunk was followed by an angiogram, which showed small contrast extravasation originating from the proximal common hepatic artery, most likely from the gastroduodenal artery stump (Figure 2(a)).
The common hepatic artery passed near the right side of the caudate lobe of the liver and at the level of the pancreas head (after giving a gastroduodenal branch) continued into proper hepatic artery which branched into left hepatic arteries and a larger right hepatic artery (Figure 3).
