Abstract

The knowledge of anatomical variations in hepatic artery are of importance to surgeons and radiologists while performing complicated procedures like liver transplantation and transarterial chemo-embolization for hepatic tumors. The incidence of accessory left hepatic artery is less common than the right accessory hepatic artery. Here we report an anomalous accessory left hepatic artery arising from common hepatic artery in a 55 year old male cadaver.
