Figure 112.27

Anterior-posterior and cross-table lateral drawings of a patient whose lower extremity lymphangiogram was normal. The obturator and hypogastric nodes are not visible. The drawings illustrate and name the regional lymphatics of the pelvis and lower lumbar area. With the exception of the obturator nodes (located inside the acetabula) and some of the hypogastric and uterosacral nodes, the nodes are not on the pelvic walls.
