Arteries of Urinary Bladder

Description

The urinary bladder receives a dual blood supply that supplies the superior and inferior parts of the organ. Superior vesical arteries are branches off the umbilical artery. In males, the inferior vesical arteries branch directly from the internal iliac arteries. In females, the vaginal artery serves the function of the inferior vesical artery to supply the inferior bladder.
