Studies indicated that the collateral routes were immediately evident during HAO and that most collateral arteries originated from the inferior phrenic artery (IPA), the SMA, celiac axis, LGA, or the dorsal pancreatic artery [11-13,15,16].
The systemic artery most commonly arises from the thoracic aorta, (7) (case 1), but can arise from abdominal aorta or celiac axis (cases 2 and 3) and even more rarely from left subclavian and internal mammary artery.

The pathophysiologic changes that underlay the development of true gastroduodenal artery aneurysms comprise mainly atherosclerosis of the celiac artery with subsequent stenosis but also rarely congenital absence of the celiac axis. These two circumstances can be distinguished by the morphology of the collaterals that develop.
