Splenorenal ligament, also known as the lienorenal ligament is a peritoneal ligament. It represents the dorsal most part of dorsal mesentery and forms part of the lateral border of the lesser sac. It is continuous with the gastrosplenic and phrenicocolic ligaments 1.
The splenorenal ligament is formed from an anterior and posterior peritoneal layer 2.
- anterior layer
- posterior layer
- continues laterally with the peritoneum overlying the inferior diaphragmatic surface, and runs onto the splenic surface over the renal impression.
The splenorenal ligament contains the following 2:
- tail of the pancreas
- splenic artery
- splenic vein
In the setting of portal hypertension, collateral circulation may establish within the splenorenal ligament.
