Image of variations between uterine and vaginal arteries

1. Uterine artery dominant; supplies marginal (M) and cervico/vaginal (CV) branches. Vaginal artery (V) is small.

2. Uterine artery dominant; supplies marginal (M) and cervico/vaginal (CV) branches. The cervico/vaginal and a small vaginal (V) artery supply the vaginal wall.

3. Uterine artery dominant; supplies marginal artery (M), cervical (C) and vaginal (V) branches. The vaginal branch from the uterine artery reinforces a small vaginal artery.

4. Uterine artery (U) provides the marginal (M) and cervical/vaginal (CV) arteries. Larger vaginal artery (V) supplies more than half of vaginal wall.

5. Internal Iliac artery supplies the marginal (M) and cervical/vaginal (CV) branches. Cervico/vaginal artery supplies most of the vaginal wall. Vaginal artery is small.

From Dubreuil-Chambardel, 1925.
