The vaginal artery is a branch of the anterior division of the internal iliac artery, and should not to be mistaken with the vaginal branch of the uterine artery. It is often considered to be a homolog of the inferior vesical artery, which is present only in males.
- origin: anterior division of the internal iliac artery
- location: pelvis
- supply: lower part of the vagina, vestibular bulb, rectum, fundus of bladder
- branches: vaginal and inferior vesical branches
The vaginal artery originates from the anterior division of the internal iliac artery.
The vaginal artery gives vaginal and inferior vesical branches:
- vaginal branch descends to the vagina, supplies it and can anastomose with the vaginal branch of the uterine artery
- inferior vesical branch proceeds towards the fundus of the bladder
