DEEP ARTERY OF PENIS

 

ORIGIN: Internal pudendal artery.

COURSE/DISTRIBUTION: Arises from the internal pudendal artery as a terminal branch before the artery reaches the inferior pubic ligament. It then pierces the deep transverse perineal muscle and the inferior fascia of urogenital diaphragm to enter the crus of the penis that it supplies. It also reaches the corpus cavernosum that leads off from the crus.

BRANCHES:  Crural and spongy branches.
