A 46-year-old male presents in consultation for weight loss surgery. He is 6’0” and weighs 300 pounds. He has tried multiple dietary and exercise regimens but has been unsuccessful in losing weight. The surgeon suggests a sleeve gastrectomy, a procedure that reduces the size of the stomach removing a large portion of the stomach along the middle part of the greater curvature. The surgeon anticipates having to ligate a portion of the arterial supply to this part of the stomach in order to complete the resection. Which of the following vessels gives rise to the vessel that will need to be ligated in order to complete the resection?
Left gastric artery
Right gastric artery
Right gastroepiploic artery
