Artery to ductus deferens

  • The artery to the ductus deferens (latin: arteria ductus deferentis) is a branch of the anterior division of the internal iliac artery in males.

    The artery to the ductus deferens descends within the composition of the spermatic cord and splits into many small branches in the ductus deferens.

    On its course, the artery to the ductus deferens gives small branches to the seminal vesicle and the lower third of the ureter.

    Thus, the artery to the ductus deferens supplies blood to the ductus deferens, seminal vesicles, and the lower third of the ureter.
