|Artery: Azygos arteries of the vagina|
|The arteries of the internal organs of generation of the female, seen from behind. (Azygos arteries visible at bottom left.)|
|Latin||rami vaginales arteriae uterinae|
|Gray's||subject #155 616|
The uterine artery supplies branches to the cervix uteri and others which descend on the vagina; the latter anastomose with branches of the vaginal arteries and form with them two median longitudinal vessels—the azygos arteries of the vagina—one of which runs down in front of and the other behind the vagina.
