Hepatic artery variations: a case report

Author(s): Debasis Bandopadhyay*, Surajit Ghatak, Nivenjeet Tiwari and Lalit Garu

Variations in hepatic arteries were noticed in a female cadaver during dissection for undergraduate students. Detailed dissection was carried out to establish branches from celiac trunk. It was observed in our cadaver that common hepatic artery trifurcated to form gastroduodenal, right hepatic and left hepatic arteries. The cystic artery was a branch from left hepatic artery. The right gastric artery was seen to arise from left hepatic artery. In clinical practice the in-depth knowledge of not only “standard” anatomy but variational anatomy is essential to minimize morbidity encountered during hepato-biliary surgeries. The angiogenic pattern seen in our case forms 1-2% of all documented variations.
