Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy

The anterior gastric branches of anterior vagal trunk are branches of the anterior vagal trunk which supply the stomach.[1]

One long branch of it runs from the lesser curvature or parallel to it in lesser omentum as far as the pyloric antrum to fan out into branches in a way like the digits of a crow's foot to supply the pyloric antrum and the anterior wall of pyloric canal.
