The uterine artery [a. uterina], is directed downwards from the anterior division of the internal iliac artery towards the neck of the uterus.

Insinuating itself between the layers of the broad ligament, it passes upwards at the side of the uterus, pursuing an exceedingly tortuous course, and sends off numerous branches, which enter the substance of that organ.

This artery also supplies small branches to the bladder and the ureter ; and near its termination, communicates with an offset directed inwards from the ovarian artery.
