The gastrosplenic ligament (ligamentum gastrosplenicum or gastrolienal ligament) is part of the greater omentum.

Embryonically the gastrosplenic ligament is derived from the dorsal mesogastrium.[1]

The gastrosplenic ligament is made of peritoneum that connects the greater curvature of stomach with the hilum of the spleen.

Contains: Short gastric vessels and left gastro-epiploic vessels
