Right gastric artery
|Artery: Right gastric artery|
Right gastric artery is at #2 -- the lower of the two arrows.
|Latin||Arteria gastrica dextra|
|Source||Proper hepatic artery|
|Vein||Right gastric vein|
The right gastric artery (pyloric artery) arises above the pylorus from the proper hepatic artery or less frequently from the common hepatic artery, descends to the pyloric end of the stomach, and passes from right to left along its lesser curvature, supplying it with branches, and anastomosing with the left gastric artery.
The celiac artery and its branches; the liver has been raised, and the lesser omentum and anterior layer of the greater omentum removed.
