In the pattern of the bifurcation type of the hepatic artery (43.33%, Fig.2), which is free from collateral branches (first type), there is a characterised distribution by a right branch that is the gastroduodenal artery, and a left branch from where some trunks originate which irrigate in an extremely variable way the six lobes of the liver, the gall bladder (cystic artery) and the stomach, where it then branches off in the right gastric artery.
