    Title Posterior Division of the Internal Iliac Artery: Anatomic Variations and Clinical Applications.
    Date December 2007
    Journal American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to characterize the anatomy of the internal iliac artery (IIA) and its posterior division branches and to correlate these findings to IIA ligation. STUDY DESIGN: Dissections were performed in 54 female cadavers. RESULTS: Average length of IIA was 27.0 (range, 0-52) mm. Posterior division arteries arose from a common trunk in 62.3% (66 of 106) of pelvic halves. In the remaining specimens, branches arose independently from the IIA, with the iliolumbar noted as the first branch in 28.3%, lateral sacral in 5.7%, and superior gluteal in 3.8%. The average width of the first branch was 5.0 (range, 2-12) mm. In all dissections, posterior division branches arose from the dorsal and lateral aspect of IIA. The internal iliac vein was lateral to the artery in 70.6% (12 of 17) of specimens on the left and 93.3% (14 of 15) on the right. CONCLUSION: Ligation of the IIA 5 cm distal from the common iliac bifurcation would spare posterior division branches in the vast majority of cases. Understanding IIA anatomy is essential to minimize intra-operative blood loss and other complications.

    Title Anatomic Relationships of the Distal Third of the Pelvic Ureter, Trigone, and Urethra in Unembalmed Female Cadavers.
    Date December 2007
    Journal American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to examine the relationship of the ureter to paravaginal defect repair (PVDR) sutures and to evaluate the anatomy of distal ureter, trigone, and urethra relative to the anterior vaginal wall. STUDY DESIGN: Dissections of the retropubic space were performed in 24 unembalmed female cadavers following placement of PVDR sutures. Lengths of the vagina, urethra, and trigone were recorded. RESULTS: The mean distance between apical PVDR sutures and the ureter was 22.8 (range, 5-36) mm. The average lengths of the urethra, trigone, and vagina were 3 cm, 2.8 cm, and 8.4 cm, respectively. The trigone was positioned over the middle third of the anterior vaginal wall in all specimens and the distal ureters traversed the anterolateral vaginal fornices. CONCLUSION: The ureters may be injured during paravaginal defect repairs, anterior colporrhaphies, and other procedures involving dissection in the upper third of the vagina. Cystotomy during vaginal hysterectomies is most likely to occur 2-3 cm above the trigone.
