AMORIM JUNIOR, Adelmar Afonso de et al. Anomalous Branch of Internal Pudendal Artery. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.1, pp.71-72. ISSN 0717-9502.

The ischiatic artery classically described as a branch of the inferior gluteal artery, is a long and thin vessel that is related to the ischiatic nerve. In a dissection was observed that this artery emerges from the internal pudendal artery with a caliber larger than the ones described in the literature. The knowledge of anatomical variations is important to the surgeons, radiologists and anatomists
