Arteries of the stomach, liver and spleen (Latin)

Arteries of the stomach, liver and spleen (Latin)

The blood supply of the stomach (gaster) originates from the truncus coeliacus and is provided from two anastomotic systems along the curvatures and several direct branches. The anastomosis along the curvatura minor is created by the union of the aa. gastricae dextra et sinistra which originate from the a. hepatica communis and truncus coeliacus, respectively. The anastomosis of the curvatura major is formed by the union of the aa. gastroomentales dextra et sinistra, which originate from the a. gastroduodenalis and a. splenica, respectively. The aa. gastricae breves et posteriores, arise from the a. splenica and supply the fundus and paries posterior gastris. The liver (hepar) is supplied by the a. hepatica propria which is a continuation of the a. hepatica communis and courses alongside the v. portae hepatis and ductus biliaris. The a. hepatica dextra gives off the a. cystica and supplies the gallbladder (vescia biliaris).
