The clinical and angiographic characteristics of the hepatic artery aneurysms have been reviewed, mid an illustrative case is reported of a 49-year-old man in which the preoperative diagnosis was put in evidence by selective arteriography. The surgical treatment of this ease emphasizes the importance of the collateral blood supply to the liver through the gastroduodenal circle. The effectiveness of the latter in maintaining the viability and functional capacity of the liver was made evident by the postoperative arteriogram and the repeated postoperative liver function tests.
