AZYGOS ARTERY OF VAGINA

 

ORIGIN: Vaginal artery.

COURSE/DISTRIBUTION: This artery arises from the vaginal artery and anastomoses with vaginal branches of the uterine artery to complete the anastomotic longitudinal channel running from the ovary to the vagina in the broad ligament and mesosalpinx. This anastomosis is mainly responsible for the vaginal cycle that is normally in synchrony with ovarian cycle. But a blockage of the anastomotic channel could lead to abnormal vaginal cyclicity. The branches of the azygos vessels also anastomose with the perineal branches from the internal pudendal artery in the perineum.

  • BRANCHES: Cutaneous and mucosal branches.
