||It has been suggested that Gastrohepatic ligament be merged into this article. (Discuss) Proposed since October 2015.|
The hepatogastric ligament is in this image labeled the lesser omentum, of which it is a part. The gastroduodenal ligament is a separate ligament, but also part of the lesser omentum.
The cranial part of the lesser omentum is formed by the hepatogastric ligament, extending between the liver and stomach. The ligament itself consists of a dense cranial portion and the caudal portion (pars flaccida). Near the stomach, it carries both the right gastric artery and the left gastric artery.
