OLIVEROS VIAMONTES, Georgia; DURAN MATOS, Mayda  and  ALMAGUER RODRIGUEZ, Carmen. Anatomic variants of the arteries that irrigate the stomach . Bibliograhical Review. AMC [online]. 2001, vol.5, n.3. ISSN 1025-0255.

A bibliographical review of 25 authors was carried out with the aim of knowing the existence of anatomic variants in the irrigation of the stomach, out of them 18 texts of surgery and anatomy including classics of the last one, the remaining bibliography corresponds to journals. A description of the general pattern of gastric irrigation and the anatomic variants of its origins, as well as the existing variants in the arteries that directly irrigates this organ and other irrigation sources secondary for it was performed.We reached to the conclusion that all irrigation comes from the celiac trunk which transmits three arteries but occasionally one of them may not be present. Variants of arteries that irrigate directly the organ are abundant either in its origin or branches departing from them. The artery that had greater importance in the knowledge of its variants is the left gastric, and the existence of secondary gastric branches whose irrigation is destined mainly to pylorus and the cardiac region.
