(redirected from ramus pubicus arteriae epigastricae inferioris)

pu·bic branch of in·fe·ri·or ep·i·gas·tric ar·ter·y

branch arising from the inferior epigastric artery medially to the deep inguinal ring; runs medial to femoral ring onto posterior pubis; anastomosis, pubic branch of obturator artery. This anastomosis is frequently large, referred to as an "accessory obturator artery." In 20-30% of patients, this anastomosis replaces the obturator artery, as an "aberrant" or "replaced" obturator artery.
