Exploration of liver, gall bladder, pancreas, duodenum and spleen
Relations along superior border of pancreas
The pancreas has been deflected downward slightly and superior parts of the duodenum (13) has been pulled outward and downward. Massed fibres of the celiac plexus surround the origins of the hepatic, left gastric and splenic arteries and thus obscure the celiac trunk (25).
