The authors present a case that highlights the anatomy of the hepatic falciform artery and describes its importance. The hepatic falciform artery is an anatomic variant that arises from the hepatic vasculature and provides arterial communication between the abdominal wall and the liver. It is essential to identify its presence, especially when surgery or embolization is planned for that area.
