|A.||Internal iliac artery|
Inferior epigastric artery
Answer B) Abdominal aorta
Explanation: The spermatic cord contains three arteries: testicular artery, artery of the ductus deferens, and cremasteric artery.
The abdominal aorta branches around L2 into the paired testicular arteries, which serve as the primary blood supply to the testes.
The testicular artery’s course within the spermatic cord makes it susceptible to injury during inguinal hernia repair.
Collateral blood supply is provided by branches of the cremasteric artery and artery of the ductus deferens, which anastomose with the main testicular artery distally.
