PMID:  1610235     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A variant left hepatic artery occurs at a rate of approximately 10%. In standard esophagogastrectomy and some proximal gastric operations this variant artery is sacrificed, which has led to reported fatalities secondary to hepatic necrosis. We report our method of esophagogastrectomy in the presence of an aberrant left hepatic artery.
