    In this lecture we are going to look at the branches of the internal iliac artery. We are going to look at the branches that come off this internal iliac artery which is a branch itself from the common iliac. We will look at the some divisions, the anterior and the posterior divisions. And we will look at the visceral and the parietal branches that supply the organs within the pelvis and also the body wall, the walls of the pelvis. We will look at some specific organs, so we'll look at the male reproductive organs, and to the testes. We will look at the female reproductive organs like the uterus and the vagina and the specific branches that supply them. And at the end we will look at the rectum which has a complicated blood supply. And we will start looking at the blood supply to it with the upper, middle and lower parts. But important, remember, the rectum also with the anus runs in the perineum and we will look at that later on in the course. So the main arterial supply to the pelvic viscera is primarily from the internal iliac artery. And this artery gives rise to a complex and incredibly variable network of arteries that supply organs within the urinary, reproductive and gastrointestinal systems. Those systems that are located in the pelvis. So if we look at the general arrangement of the branches of the internal iliac, then on screen we can see a hemisected pelvis which has had the organs removed. So we're just looking into a right hemisected pelvis. You should be familiar with this view now. Here we have... Here we have the posterior aspect. Here we have the anterior aspect. We can see we have got the sacrum, we have got...
