Description

The stomach is supplied directly and indirectly by the three branches of the celiac trunk. The lesser curvature is supplied by the left and right gastric arteries. The greater curvature is supplied by the left and right gastroomental arteries (branches of the splenic and gastroduodenal arteries [which originates from the common hepatic artery], respectively). The fundus and the upper portion of the stomach are supplied by the short gastric and posterior gastric arteries (branches of the splenic artery).
