Abstract

Aberrant branching pattern of celiac trunk or its branches is not uncommon. Nevertheless, many of its notable variations were found to be clinically significant. We report herein a case of variant branching pattern of celiac trunk giving rise to five branches; two of them are inferior phrenic arteries and a separate branch to the body of pancreas as variant additional pancreatic branch. In addition, the left hepatic artery was arising from the left gastric artery. Aberrant branches supplying the abdominal structures may pose a difficulty for surgeon operating in the region and may lead to iatrogenic vascular accidents
