  • O – “On its Way to Liver” – The artery is on its way to deliver oxygen-rich blood to the liver.
  • N – “Nourishing the Hepatocytes” – Inside the liver, it branches further to supply hepatocytes (liver cells) with oxygenated blood.
  • A – “And then Anatomosing” – After nourishing the liver, it may anatomose (connect) with other hepatic arteries within the liver.
  • R – “Reaches the Liver” – Ultimately, the common hepatic artery reaches and delivers blood to the liver, playing a vital role in its function.
  • T – “Takes a Turn” – It may take a turn as it branches further within the liver’s vascular network.
  • E – “Enters the Liver Parenchyma” – Finally, it enters the liver parenchyma, where it facilitates various liver functions.
  • R – “Runs with the Portal Vein” – It often runs alongside the portal vein, which carries nutrient-rich blood from the digestive organs to the liver.
  • Y – “Yielding Hepatic Arteries” – Inside the liver, it divides into smaller branches, yielding hepatic arteries that intricately supply the liver’s different regions.
