Superior pancreaticoduodenal artery arises after branching off from gastroduodenal artery. It divides into anterior and posterior divisions which supply the pylorus, head of pancreas and duodenum.
Knowledge of this collateral pathway is essential when carrying out embolization procedures for upper GI bleeding to ensure satisfactory embolization.
This collateral pathway also provides a route to access the hepatic circulation via the superior mesenteric artery in case of celiac axis occlusion.
