DORSAL 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 ascends between the crus of penis and the pubic symphysis after escaping from the urogenital diaphragm. It reaches the suspensory ligament of penis, running along the dorsum of the penis to reach the glans where it divides into its two terminal branches one to the prepuce and one to the glands. It lies between the dorsal nerve and the deep dorsal vein of the penis at the dorsum of that organ.

BRANCHES: 

  • Spongy branches.
  • Branch to prepuce
  • Branch to glans
