Origin

The anterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery gives rise to a variable number of small duodenal branches.

Some of the duodenal branches recur and course superiorly, while others pass roughly horizontally to the right, to the first and second parts of the duodenum, respectively.

Branches

The duodenal branches of the anterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery anastomose with the numerous other arteries that supply the proximal part of the duodenum.

Supplied Structures
