Arteria pancreatica magna

usually the largest branch to the body of the pancreas which arises from the midportion of the splenic artery. It passes through the substance of the pancreas behind the pancreatic duct where it divides into several branches which usually, but not invariably, anastomose with the transverse pancreatic artery and caudal pancreatic arteries. See blood vessels, pancreas (II), Fig. 2
