Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX The blood supply to the spleen is composed of : - splenic artery - splenic vein - splenic trabeculae The direct splenic artery or vein do not project out from the bottom of the spleen. There are other blood vessels branches coming from abdominal aorta and vena porta that has such projections. All the best! Dr. Benard
