One hundred and thirty-four stillborn specimens were arterially injected with latex and dissected to determine the origin of the foveolar artery. The obturator artery supplied this branch in 54.5 per cent and the medial femoral circumflex artery in 14.9 per cent. Separate foveolar branches arose from both these vessels in 6.7 per cent, while in the remaining 23.9 per cent an anastomotic connection between the obturator and medial femoral circumflex gave origin to the foveolar artery.
