ABSTRACT A less common type of celiacomesenteric arterial trunk was noticed during a routine cadaver dissection in a 30-year-old male cadaver. The left gastric artery gave an additional accessory left hepatic branch to the liver, while the common hepatic branch gave rise to right and left hepatic arteries. Additionally, the superior mesenteric artery gave an accessory right hepatic branch, to the liver. Such arterial variations are of clinical and surgical significance, particularly in liver surgery.
