Superficial external pudendal artery

  • The superficial external pudendal artery (latin: arteria pudenda externa superficialis) is a branch of the femoral artery.

    The superficial external pudendal artery pierces the femoral sheath and the cribriform fascia, then it crosses the spermatic cord (in the male), or the round ligament (in the female).

    The superficial external pudendal artery supplies the lower part of the abdomen, the penile and scrotal skin of the male, or labial skin of the female.
