Obturator Artery 3D

  • Description

    • * It arises from the internal iliac artery in the pelvis and passes through the obturator foramen, where it divides into anterior and posterior branches.
    • * It may arise from the external iliac or inferior epigastric artery, which may pass toward the pelvic brim along the medial margin of the femoral ring.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
    • Anterior Branch of the obturator artery:

      • * It descends in front of the adductor brevis muscle and gives muscular branches.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
    • Posterior Branch of the obturator artery:
      • * It descends behind the adductor brevis muscle to supply the adductor muscles.
      • * It gives rise to the acetabular branch, which sends an artery to the head of the femur.
