Insertion

It produces sections to nearby lymph nodes as well as the coat, anastomosing with cutaneous sections of the inferior epigastric artery. Generally, it is a really small vessel. The Superficial Epigastric Artery emerges a little below Poupart’s ligament, perforates the fascia lata, and also rises to the umbilicus facing Poupart’s ligament. It supplies the glands of the thigh, as well as the fascia and coats of the abdomen, and also anastomoses together with the internal epigastric and mammary arteries.

Supply

• Rectus abdominis muscle
• Deep abdominal wall of the pubic
• Lower umbilical areas
