Perfusion was maintained for 6 h and the oxygenated blood was recirculated from the reservoir via the perfusion circuit to the splenic artery
Twenty-two lesions were classified as type B, including lesions of the aortic arch (n=2), descending aorta (n=3), coronary artery (n=1), splenic artery
(n=1), left subclavian artery (n=1), left common carotid artery (n=1), brachiocephalic trunk (n=1), aortaventralis (n=3), celiac trunk (n=3), iliac artery (n=4), renal artery (n=1), and IMA (n=1).
Ultrasound evaluation of liver and spleen was carried out after overnight fast along with doppler evaluation of splenic artery
. Histopathological findings, of the subsequently done liver biopsy, were recorded as gold standard.
aneurysms (SAAs) are the third most common true aneurysms occurring in the abdomen, after aortic and iliac artery aneurysms.
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)  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) .

(b) Coronal MIP image showing actively bleeding aberrant artery arising from the splenic artery
(arrow) and extending diagonally into the right iliac fossa, supplying the fat containing lesion (arrow head).
The splenic artery
may have two, three, four, and five terminal branches or enter the splenic tissue without branching.
When the truncus level has been reached, arteria hepatica communis and the left gastric artery, which became easily identified because of the prestenotic dilation, were prepared from the exit site, but the splenic artery
was not isolated, as it was the branch of truncus coeliacus reaching to the caudal part of pancreas.
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.
