The inferior vesical artery is a branch (direct or indirect) of the anterior division of the internal iliac artery. It frequently arises in common with the middle rectal artery, and is distributed to the fundus of the bladder. In males, it also supplies the prostate and the seminal vesicles. The branches to the prostate communicate with the corresponding vessels of the opposite side.

Some texts consider it to be found only in males, and cite the vaginal artery as the homologous structure in females.cite book |author=Kyung Won, PhD.

Other texts consider it to be present in both males and females. [SUNYAnatomyLabs|43|13|03|01 - "The Female Pelvis: Branches of Internal Iliac Artery"] In these contexts, the inferior vesical artery in females is a small branch of a vaginal artery.
