Dissection of male pelvis from a lateral approach
General view of interior of right pelvic wall with peritoneum and pelvic fascia removed
The pelvic peritoneum has been entirely removed. The pelvic fascia has been teased away from the structures within the right side of the pelvic cavity so that the interrelations of the ureter, ductus deferens, lateral umbilical ligament, lymphatics, blood vessels and nerves may be examined.
1 . Right common iliac artery
2 . Ureter right
3 . Psoas major muscle
4 . Left pointer: External iliac artery Right pointer: Internal iliac artery
5 . Iliacus muscle
6 . Lateral umbilical ligament
7 . External iliac lymph nodes
8 . External iliac vein
9 . Umbilical prevesical fascia (related to lateral umbilical ligament)
10 . Urinary bladder
11 . Left pointer: Deferential plexus Right pointer: artery of ductus deferens
12 . Obturator artery (in background)
13 . Inferior hypogastric plexus (pelvic plexus)
14 . Ductus deferens
15 . Parietal pelvic fascia (partially removed from pelvic plexus)
16 . Prostate
17 . Superior hypogastric plexus
18 . Common iliac artery and vein
19 . Left pointer: Middle sacral artery Right pointer: Promontory
20 . Upper pointer: Right internal iliac vein Lower pointer: Superior gluteal artery
21 . Femoral nerve
22 . Lateral sacral artery
23 . Iliolumbar vein
24 . Lumbosacral trunk
25 . Articular surface of sacrum
26 . Sacral nerve I
27 . Upper pointer: Inferior gluteal artery Lower pointer: Internal pudendal artery
28 . Sacral splanchnic nerve (from sacral sympathetic trunk)
29 . Upper pointer: Piriform muscle Lower pointer: Pelvic splanchnic nerve (parasympathetic)
30 . Rectum
