If the posterior division of the Internal Iliac artery was blocked, which organs would see a reduction in blood flow?
The organs and regions affected would be the gluteal region, the posterior abdominal wall, the spinal meninges, and the deep back muscles dorsal to the sacrum. The posterior division of the internal iliac artery gives rise to the iliolumbar artery, lateral sacral artery, and the superior gluteal artery which supplies the regions mentioned above.
