Not illustrated. 1897 Excerpt: ...artery of the penis and the artery of the corpus cavernosum. Relations.--In the first part of its course, within the pelvis, it lies in front of the Pyriformis muscle and sacral plexus of nerves, and on the outer side of the rectum (on the left side). As it crosses the spine of the ischium it is cov Ileo-lumbar ered fay tfae Glmeug maximus. In the pelvis it lies on the outer side of the ischio-rectal fossa, upon the surface of the Obturator internus muscle, contained in a fibrous canal formed by the obturator fascia and the falciform process of the great sacro-sciatic ligament. It is accompanied by the pudic veins and the internal pudic nerve, which lies internal to it on the ischial Int. pudic spine. Peculiarities.--The internal pudic is sometimes smaller than usual, or fails to give off one or two of its usual branches; in such cases the deficiency is supplied by branches derived from an additional vessel, the accessory pudic, which generally arises from the internal pudic artery before its exit from the great sacrosciatic foramen. It passes forward along the lower part hypogastric of the bladder and across the side of the prostate gland to the root of the penis, where it perforates the triangular ligament and gives off the branches usually derived from the pudic (Gegenbaur.) artery. The deficiency most frequently met with is that in which the internal pudic ends as the artery of the bulb, the artery of the corpus cavernosum and arteria dorsalis penis being derived from the accessory pudic. Or the pudic may terminate as the superficial perineal, the artery of the bulb being derived, with the other two branches, from the accessory vessel. Surgical Anatomy.--The relation of the accessory pudic to the prostate gland and urethra is of the greatest interest in...Read Less
