The vaginal or the vagino-vesical in females corresponds to the prostatic/vesical artery in males.

This artery may arise from several sources, Dubreuil-Chambardel found the following:

1. Arises from the internal iliac in

40% of cases,

2. Arises from a common trunk with the middle rectal

19%

3. Arises from a common trunk with the uterine

16%, and

4. In the remainder, the artery is doubles

25%.

From Dubreuil-Chambardel, 1925.
