Anatomical variations in the arterial supply of adult human stomach have long baffled even the most experienced surgeons during surgical manipulation of the stomach. The stomach develops from the foregut hence its arterial supply is derived from the coeliac trunk. The present study is aimed at observing the anatomical variations of the arteries supplying the stomach. This study has been conducted on fifty cadavers during routine dissections. The aberrant arteries observed have both embryological and clinical significance. A comprehensive knowledge of the arteries nourishing the stomach along with their anomalies is vital for the surgeons to avoid iatrogenic complications during surgical manipulation involving the organ.
