Right Gastric Artery

Ronald A. Bergman, PhD
Adel K. Afifi, MD, MS
Ryosuke Miyauchi, MD

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed


The most frequent origin of the right gastric artery is the proper hepatic artery (~ 53%); the common hepatic, near its point of division (~20%); or from the left hepatic branch (~15%). In some cases it arose as a branch of the gastroduodenal (~8%), or as a branch of the common hepatic (~4 %).

Daseler et al. (1947) provide the following concise summary:

Origin of right gastric artery: 250 cases; common hepatic, 125; left hepatic, 81; gastroduodenal, 33; right hepatic, 10; celiac, 1.
