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


The segment VIII artery courses superiorly until it bifurcates.


The segment VIII artery provides a branch, A8 ventral, inferior to the superior surface of the liver, and a branch, A8 dorsal, terminating at the very superior surface of the liver, just inferior to the diaphragm (Furuta et al., 2009).

Supplied Structures

The segment VIII artery supplies segment VIII of the liver.
