Abstract

We have investigated the existence, frequency and the course of arteries of the human stomach fundus by injection method. Our material obtained 52 human fetuses of the length range from 127 to 285 mm and the fetal age range from l5 to 28 weeks of gestation. It has been found, that the source of the arterial blood supply of this region are two arteries: the left gastric artery and splenic artery with its bigger branches: posterior gastric artery, superior polar artery and short gastric arteries. The source of arterial blood supply of the stomach fundus there have been two in 6 cases (11,5%) or three in 45 cases (86,6%) or four in 1 case (l,9%) of these arteries. We have analysed in detail the contribution and the range of the following arteries in the stomach quadrants. It has been shown, that the anterior medial quadrant has the best arterial blood supply and the anterior lateral has the worst one.
