The arteries that supply the stomach are branches of the celiac trunk . This is the first unpaired branch of the abdominal aorta, arising just after the aorta passes behind the diaphragm.
The branches of the celiac artery are three:

1. left gastric
2. splenic
3. common hepatic

* celiac “C”

o left gastric LG – supplies the lesser curvature of the stomach and lower esophagus
+ esophageal E
* splenic “S” which gives rise to:
o short gastric SG – supplies area of the fundus
o left gastroepiploic LGE – supplies the left part of greater curvature of the stomach

* common hepatic “CH”

o gastroduodenal GD
+ right gastric RG – supplies right side of lesser curvature of the stomach
+ right gastroepiploic RGE – supplies the right part of the greater curvature of the stomach
