A report is presented on an angiographic study of the gastric arterial system conducted on 20 human stomachs taken from cadavers during routine autopsies. The aim of the study was to define the anatomical bases for the supply of blood to the isoperistaltic gastric tubule in oesophagogastroplasty operations. The study reveals that on its own the right gastroepiploic artery cannot ensure adequate vascularisation of the gastric fundus. The importance of pressuring the right hand section of the vascular arch along the small curve was also noted and is due to the constant presence of major anastomoses at antral level with the right gastroepiploic artery. The study also revealed the constant presence of a direct intramural anastomotic circulation between the right and left gastroepiploic arteries.
