Other Terms: Gastrolienal ligament, Ligamentum gastrolienale, Ligamentum gastrosplenicum, Ligament gastro-splénique
The gastrosplenic ligament extends between the fundus of the stomach and the hilum of the spleen, and is continuous below with the greater omentum. It consists of two layers of peritoneum, between which pass the short gastric arteries of the splenic artery, which run to the fundus of the stomach. The structures in the gastrosplenic ligament are the short gastric vessels, left gastroepiploic vessels, lymph vessels, and sympathetic nerves.
