These minute glands are arranged in two groups, an anterior vesical, in front of the bladder, and a lateral vesical, in relation to the lateral umbilical ligament. The vessels from the posterior surface pass to the hypogastric, external, and common iliac glands; those draining the upper part of this surface traverse the lateral vesical glands. 1 Some authorities maintain that a plexus of lymphatic vessels does exist in the mucous membrane of the bUdd (consult Medecine operatoirc des Voies urinaires, par J. Albarran, Paris. 1909). The Lymphatic Vessels of the Prostate (Fig. 619) terminate chiefly in the hypogastric and sacral glands, but one trunk from the posterior surface ends in the external iliac glands, and another from the anterior surface joins the vessels which drain the membranous part of the urethra. Lymphatic Vessels of the Urethra.--The lymphatics of the cavernous portion of the urethra-accompany those of the glans penis, and terminate with them in the deep subinguinal and external iliac glands. Those of the membranous and-prostatic portions, and those of the whole urethra in the female, pass to the hypogastric glands. Fio. 619.--Lymphatics of the prostate. (Cun6o and Marcille.) (4) The lymphatic vessels of the reproductive organs. The Lymphatic Vessels of the Testes consist of two sets, superficial and deep, the former commencing on the surface of the tunica vaginalis, the latter in the epididymis and body of the testis. They form from four to eight collecting trunks which ascend with the spermatic veins in the spermatic cord and along the front of the Psoas major to the level where the spermatic vessels cross the ureter and end in..
