Hypogastrice Arteriae

See Iliacae ar-terije for the external hypogastric arteries. The hypogastric or internal iliac artery sinks into the inside of the pelvis, just over the edge of the sacrum: when it arrives there its branches extend to the contents of the pelvis, and then go through the sciatic notch. In the foetus the internal iliac is larger than the external, because it supplies the placenta. After birth it consequently shrinks, and makes the chord, which was before the umbilical vessels.

Hypogastricsae venae . These veins run the same course with their corresponding arteries, except that they do not send off the vena umbilicalis. The hypogastric veins are the internal iliac branches.


(From Hypogastrium 4447 under, and the stomach). Aqualiculus; etron; sometimes imus venter; is the lower external region of the fore part of the belly, extending from the lower extremity of the regio umbilicalis, to the bottom of the ossa innominata. It is divided into the pubes before, and the groins on each side. When the integuments are removed from this region you discover the linea alba, the lineae se-milunares, and the lineae transversae.
