The segment V artery arises from the anterior segmental artery of the liver.


The segment V artery courses posteriorly, inferiorly, and to the right (Furuta et al., 2009).


Typically, the segment V artery does not give rise to a single vessel, but rather a group of small vessels (Furuta et al., 2009).

Supplied Structures

The segment V artery supplies segment V of the liver.
