Abstract

Aberrant common hepatic artery originating from the left gastric artery without connecting the gastroduodenal artery is extremely rare. In gastrectomy, accidental ligation or injury of the aberrant common hepatic artery can lead to hepatic arterial ischemia. Reconstructions of CT images may be useful to avoid complications related to vascular anomaly.
