The lateral sacral artery is a standard branch of the posterior trunk of the internal iliac artery. The variations and branching patterns of the lateral sacral artery (LSA) and its branches are very crucial for surgeons. The current study describes the variability of lateral sacral artery and its incidence to provide a sufficient anatomical data for clinicians, radiologists, and orthopedics to increase success rate of any surgical interferences of pelvis.
The lateral sacral artery was observed in 30 halves of pelvis in 15 cadavers (15 right and 15 left) died in the age of 55-70 years used for routine dissection.
The variation of arising, asymmetry and sexual differences of LSA were described in the article.
