Before reaching the uterus, the uterine artery gives branches to the vagina and cervix. Within the broad ligament, a series of arterial branches is given to the body of the uterus until the uterine artery anastomoses with the ovarian artery at the uterotubal junction. The uterine vein is usually plexiform, coursing laterally in the base of the broad ligament following the uterine artery before reaching the lateral pelvic wall. Here the plexus of veins forms a series of tributaries entering the internal iliac vein, which in turn empties into the inferior vena cava.
