REPLACED RIGHT HEPATIC ARTERY IN UPPER GIT BLEEDING
The aim of this case report is to highlight an anatomical variant of the right hepatic artery during angiography. The course of surgery or endovascular treatment is very dependent on this information. A 67-year-old male patient with hypertension and diabetes mellitus was admitted to our institution due to episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The digital subtraction angiography scan showed the right hepatic artery (RHA) is originated from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) rather than the usual RHA that is coming from the coeliac trunk.
