ABSTRACT: The good knowledge for the normal hepatic
artery distribution and the possible anatomical variations is significant
in liver transplantation in order for the vascularity not to be disturbed
and to cause necrosis of the liver parenchyma postoperatively.
Disruption of an anatomical artery variation is uncommon in liver hilum
dissection, but non establishment of continuity in time of reconstruction
is an important cause for postoperative complications such as acute liver
failure and augment morbidity and mortality.
The aim of this case report is to present a non published anatomical variation
of accessory right hepatic artery arising from proper hepatic artery between
the branching of gastroduodenal artery and bifurcation of the proper hepatic
artery to right and left branches.
Key words:Accessory right hepatic artery, liver transplantation,
anatomical variations, significance.
