Abstract

The purpose of this study is to report the variations in hepatic arterial supply of a mixed population of organ donors in which the anatomy was individually examined during the bench surgery, and patients who underwent a selective angiogram of the celiac axis and superior mesenteric artery. We reviewed the donor forms and/or angiograms of 701 patients. The donor forms were completed personally by one of the authors, while all the radiology images were obtained through studies performed by one single radiologist. The arterial anatomy was anomalous in 296 out of 701 cases with an overall incidence of hepatic artery anomalies of 42.22%. In this paper we describe previously unreported arterial anomalies of the hepatic artery, collecting the second largest series of hepatic artery anatomical variations of the English literature. This anatomical update can be useful for transplant and general surgeons, as well as vascular radiologists.
