The left gastro-omental artery (or left gastroepiploic artery), the largest branch of the splenic artery, runs from left to right about a finger’s breadth or more from the greater curvature of the stomach, between the layers of the greater omentum, and anastomoses with the right gastroepiploic.

In its course it distributes:

* "Gastric branches": several ascending branches to both surfaces of the stomach;
* "Omental branches": descend to supply the greater omentum and anastomose with branches of the middle colic.
