Arteriae arcuatae uteri

The tortuous ascending uterine artery gives off several arcuate branches that run along the anterior and posterior aspects of the uterus.


The arcuate branches divide several times before they reach the midline. Here they form anastomoses between the right and left sides.


The terminal branches of the arcuate arteries are the helicine arterioles.

Supplied Structures

The arcuate arteries supply all layers of the uterus. The helicine arterioles form a dense network within the myometrium and endometrium.
