CERDA, Aladino. Symmetric Bilateral Aberrant Obturator Artery: A Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.3, pp.1083-1086. ISSN 0717-9502.

Aberrant obturator artery (AOA) is an anatomical variation in the origin and course of the obturator artery, which is clinically important because of their vulnerability during surgical procedures performed in the pelvis. This article describes the case of a symmetrical AOA found in both hemipelvises of a male cadaver. Morphological and morphometric characteristics are presented, while their clinical significance is discussed.

Keywords : Obturator artery; Aberrant obturator artery; Corona mortis; Pelvis.
