Greater pancreatic artery
Citation, DOI and article data
It arises approximately two thirds the way along the splenic artery and descends a short distance to run to the left along the posterior margin of the pancreas or within the substance of the pancreas itself, following the pancreatic duct. It is the largest of the small pancreatic branches of the splenic artery, giving rise to its name. It usually anastomoses with branches of the transverse pancreatic artery within the pancreatic parenchyma.
