Quick Facts

The artery to ductus deferens (aka artery to vas deferens, or deferential artery) is present in males. It arises from the superior vesical artery, although in some individuals it can arise from the inferior vesical artery, or the patent part of umbilical artery. From its origin, it travels anteriorly towards the ductus deferens, and travels along with it to the testes. The artery to ductus deferens provides an arterial supply to the ductus deferens and seminal vesicles.
