Superior mesenteric origin of the proper hepatic artery
: embryological and clinical implications.
Finally, a 2.6F microcatheter was withdrawn back to the proper hepatic artery
and 3-5 ml of super-liquid iodized oil was injected at a rate of 1 ml/s (Guerbet Inc., Paris, France) for diagnostic embolization.
The possible sources of bleeding in post-pancreatoduodenectomy include the gastroduodenal artery stump, common and proper hepatic artery
erosion, or splenic and inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery erosions or aneurysm, besides other etiologies .
The common hepatic artery passed near the right side of the caudate lobe of the liver and at the level of the pancreas head (after giving a gastroduodenal branch) continued into proper hepatic artery
which branched into left hepatic arteries and a larger right hepatic artery (Figure 3).
Proper hepatic artery
passes anterior to portal vein as it ascends to the epiploic foramen and at porta hepatis branches to right and left.
Color Doppler sonography of the common and proper hepatic artery
and the portal vein was performed to evaluate the possibility of the luminal invasion of a cholangiocarcinoma or adenocarcinoma of the pancreas as differential diagnoses, which revealed reduced blood flow of the common hepatic artery and proper hepatic artery
without any intraluminal lesion.
Through a puncture site in the inguinal area, a catheter was inserted from the femoral artery to the celiac artery, and then to the proper hepatic artery
. After selecting the major feeding artery of tumors, chemotherapeutic agents were injected sequentially into the tumors through the catheter, with the infusion rate controlled by an automatic infusion pump.

with malrotated gut," Anatomical Science International, vol.
Trace the right gastric artery to the proper hepatic artery
; expose the proper hepatic artery
and its branches to the porta hepatis.
To evaluate the normal blood flow, erythrocytes were marked by a fluorescent dye by injection of 12 mg in 0.2 mL of 1 g/L fluorescent sodium 0.1 mL into the cannulised gastroduodenal artery (GDA), the proper hepatic artery
. DSM as well as 5-FU were also FITC-labelled and were likewise injected.
The patients with complete occlusion of the common hepatic artery (CHA) or the proper hepatic artery
(PHA) related to interventional procedures were included in this study.
Although we tried to advance the catheter to the proper hepatic artery
, it would not cross because of the vessel's tortuous anatomy.
