cystic artery
Back
Forward
The cystic artery lies within the triangle of Calot and should be located here during a cholecystectomy. Because there exists significant variation between the branching of the cystic artery, care must be taken when removing the gall bladder and ligating the artery (or both anterior and posterior branches if the person has an anomalous double cystic artery) to prevent unnecessary bleeding.

Calotís node is a lymph node found in front of the cystic artery within Calotís triangle.
