Abstract

The gastrohepatic ligament, a major part of the lesser omentum with hepatoduodenal ligament, is an important anatomic structure connected to several other intraabdominal organs and ligaments. It is at the crossroads of several different anatomic structures and may be affected by different diseases. In this article, we aim to increase the awareness of imagers to this small anatomic structure and provide clues for correct diagnosis and assessment of diseases that may affect this area. We will examine various diseases involving the gastrohepatic ligament in detail and try to address its importance using representative cases.
