- Internal, a large and surgically very important branch of the anterior trunk of the internal iliac artery, the principal source of the blood-supply of the external genitals. It leaves the pelvis by the greater sciatic foramen, winds around the ischiac spine, reënters the pelvis by the lesser sciatic foramen, courses along the inner side of the rami of the ischium and pubis, gives off inferior hemorrhoidal and superficial and transverse perineal branches, and divides into three penial arteries — of the bulb and cavernous body and dorsum of the penis.
- Internal, a vein corresponding to the internal pudicartery, except that it does not receive the blood from the dorsal vein of the penis.
From French pudique, from Latin pudīcus, from pudet ("it shames"). (Wiktionary)
