Abstract

We studied the prevalence of the transpancreatic common hepatic artery (tp-CHA) and coexisting variant anatomy. The study group comprised 788 consecutive liver transplant donor candidates who had undergone thin-section multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) studies to investigate vascular anatomy. Multiplanar reformatted (MPR) images obtained from the arterial phase were retrospectively reviewed to assess the presence/absence of the tp-CHA. Five cases of tp-CHA with pancreaticobiliary tumors were also included in an investigation of the presence/absence of variant hepatic arteries, celiac stenosis, and circumportal pancreas. Three of the 788 (0.38%) donor candidates had a tp-CHA. Overall, eight tp-CHA cases were assessed for coexisting variant anatomy. Seven of these eight cases had a hepatomesenteric trunk, six had celiac stenosis, and two had a circumportal pancreas. The prevalence of the tp-CHA was 0.38% (approx. one in 260 in normal populations). A tp-CHA can commonly be associated with a hepatomesenteric trunk and celiac stenosis. A circumportal pancreas can also coexist with a tp-CHA. Clin. Anat. 31:598–604, 2018.
