Vein of bulb of vestibule

Vein: Internal pudendal veins
The veins of the right half of the male pelvis. (Internal pudendal visible at bottom.)
Latin vena pudenda interna
Gray's subject #173 674
Drains to internal iliac vein
Artery internal pudendal artery

The internal pudendal veins (internal pudic veins) are the venæ comitantes of the internal pudendal artery.

They begin in the deep veins of the penis which issue from the corpus cavernosum penis, accompany the internal pudendal artery, and unite to form a single vessel, which ends in the hypogastric vein.

They receive the veins from the urethral bulb, and the perineal and inferior hemorrhoidal veins.

The deep dorsal vein of the penis communicates with the internal pudendal veins, but ends mainly in the pudendal plexus.
