The gastroduodenal artery (GDA) is frequently embolized in cases of upper GI bleed that has failed endoscopic therapy. Additionally, it may be done for GDA pseudoaneurysms or as an adjunctive procedure prior to Yttrim-90 (Y90) treatment of hepatic tumors. This clinical review will summarize anatomy and embryology of the GDA, indications, outcomes and complications of GDA embolization.
