SUPERFICIAL EXTERNAL PUDENDAL ARTERY

 

 

ORIGIN: Internal iliac artery.

 

COURSE/DISTRIBUTION: Arises below the origin of the superficial epigastric and the superficial circumflex iliac arteries from the femoral artery. It makes its way towards the medial aspect of the thigh and passes behind the great saphenous vein after piercing the cribriform fascia and the femoral sheath, to reach the scrotum (labium majus in female) and the lower part of the abdomen. It supplies these areas with cutaneous vessels.
