Obturator Artery

Sunday, October 9, 2011

The obturator artery is blood vessel which originates from the internal iliac artery, supplying the adductor longus and the adductor magnus muscles and the hip joint with oxygenated blood. As it passes forwards and downwards on the lateral wall of the pelvis, the obturator artery gives the pubic, acetabular, anterior, and posterior branches.
