usually one of two arteries that arise from the internal iliac artery or its branches; they supply muscles and skin in the neighborhood and send branches into the sacral canal, supplying radicular and spinal arteries, and continuing on to the skin and subcutaneous tissues overlying the sacrum.

The superficial branch runs deep to the Gluteus maximus which divides ascending and transverse branches and anastomose with the inferior gluteal and lateral sacral arteries. The deep branch runs between gluteus medius and minimus and divides into superior and inferior divisions.
The branches arising from the posterior trunk include iliolumbar artery, lateral sacral arteries and superior gluteal artery.
Its numerous branches supply the muscle and anastomose with the inferior gluteal artery branches while others perforate the tendinous medial attachment of the muscle to supply the skin over the sacrum where they anastomose with the posterior branches of the lateral sacral arteries. The deep branch of the superior gluteal atery passes between gluteus medius muscle and bone, soon dividing into superior and inferior branches.
