Abstract

The authors report a rare variation of the coeliac trunk, renal and testicular vasculature in a 27-year old male cadaver. In the present case, the coeliac trunk and superior mesenteric artery was replaced by a modified coeliacomesenteric trunk formed by hepato-gastric and superior mesenteric arteries. Here the hepato-gastric artery or trunk contributed towards the total hepatic inflow as well as a gastro-duodenal artery. A separate right gastric artery and an additional superior pancreaticoduodenal artery was also found in addition with a retro-aortic left renal vein and a bilateral double renal arterial supply. The aforementioned coeliac trunk variation, to our knowledge, has never been reported before and this variation combined with the renal vasculature requires careful surgical consideration.
