Abstract

In ∼60% of cases, hepatic artery anatomy is of the normal variant. However, in 40% of cases, anomalies can exist. Preserving the hepatic blood supply is paramount in hepatobiliary procedures. We report an aberrant right hepatic artery coursing retroportally, with an aberrant left hepatic artery originating directly from the coeliac artery in a patient who underwent an elective pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure).
