Abstract

This study describes a routine educational cadaveric dissection, where multiple aberrant coeliac trunk branches were noticed. Specifically, the accessory left hepatic artery emerged from the left gastric artery, while the left inferior phrenic artery originated from the coeliac trunk. The accessory left suprarenal artery was found to commence from the coeliac trunk, whereas two aberrant left suprarenal arteries branched separately from the origin of the left inferior phrenic artery. Finally, the accessory jejunal artery was observed to originate from the coeliac trunk. Anatomical variations of the coeliac trunk branches can significantly alter the surgical management of the upper abdomen; hence, clinicians and radiologists should be aware of such aberrant vascular anatomy so as to reduce the incidence of surgical complications.
