The angular incisure (angular notch) is a small anatomical notch on the stomach. It is located on the lesser curvature of the stomach near the pyloric end of the stomach. Its location varies somewhat in position with the state of distension of the internal organs.

The angular incisure is used as separation point between the a right and a left portion of the stomach. An imaginary perpendicular line from the angular incisure to the greater curvature of the stomach makes up the boundary between the pylorus and the body of the stomach
