Stomach Arterial Supply

Stomach Arterial Supply

 

Blood supply

Schematic image of the blood supply to the stomach: left and right gastric artery, left and right gastro-omental artery and short gastric artery.[5]

A more realistic image, showing the celiac artery and its branches; the liver has been raised, and the lesser omentum and anterior layer of the greater omentum removed.

The lesser curvature of the stomach is supplied by the right gastric artery inferiorly, and the left gastric artery superiorly, which also supplies the cardiac region. The greater curvature is supplied by the right gastroepiploic artery inferiorly and the left gastroepiploic artery superiorly. The fundus of the stomach, and also the upper portion of the greater curvature, is supplied by the short gastric artery which arises from splenic artery.
