Abstract

Variations in cystic artery are common. Since the laparoscopic method of cholecystectomy has become very popular at present, the knowledge of this is very important to a surgeon. The cystic artery is usually a branch of right hepatic artery. During routine dissection, the cystic artery was seen to be arising from the gastroduodenal artery in one cadaver .The occurrence of this is very low. The possible cause, course and importance of this has been discussed.
