With the peritoneum removed from the lateral wall of the pelvis, identify the blood vessels supplying the organs in the pelvis.

Note: To study the images of the blood vessels and the nerves, see Laboratory Forty-Three. Although, obviously in the male there are no uterine or vaginal arteries, there are similarities in the pattern of the branching of the internal iliac artery and the distribution of nerves (Figure 44.6).
