Abstract

Variation in the branching pattern of the internal iliac artery are occasionally encountered during cadaveric dissections and surgeries.Some of the variations are of surgical and clinical importance and ignoring them might result in alarming bleeding during surgical procedures. We report variant branching pattern of the right internal iliac artery in a male caraveric specimen. The anterior division of the internal iliac artery gave origin to obturator and middle rectal arteries. Superior vesical artery took its origin from the obturator artery. The posterior division of the internal iliac artery gave iliolumbar, lateral sacral , superior gluteal and internal pudendal arteries. The inferior gluteal artery was absent.
