Abstract Share this page

Abstract Two livers with an aberrant course of the left gastric vein were found in 245 Japanese cadavers. The left gastric vein collects branches from the lesser curvature of the stomach, enters the left side of the hepatogastric ligament from the cardiac region and runs towards the left side of hepatic hilus. The vein enters the liver at the left side and joins an intrahepatic branch ramified from the portal vein.
