Quadrifurcation of Coeliac Trunk- A Case Report
Keywords:Coeliac trunk, Quadrifurcation, Replaced right hepatic artery, Liver transplantation, cholecystectomy
During routine dissection of a cadaver in the department of anatomy at Seth GS Medical College and KEM
Hospital, we discovered a very rare type of branching pattern of the Coeliac Trunk (CT). The CT measured
3cm in length and was quadrifurcating into replaced right hepatic artery, common hepatic artery, left gastric
artery and splenic artery. The replaced right hepatic artery had unusual course where it ran behind the
portal vein and bile duct to reach the right lobe of liver. Common hepatic artery after giving gastroduodenal
and right gastric artery continued as middle hepatic artery while left hepatic artery originated from left
gastric artery. A complete knowledge of these variations are helpful for hepatobiliary surgeons and also for
