The morphological structure of the lingual a. was studied in 50 dissected and 14 vascular cast specimens. The course of this artery is divided into 4 segments: the original segment, the segment within hyoglossus, the ascending and the horizontal segments of the deep lingual a. The root of the tongue is supplied by 2 to 3 root branches of the lingual a., the ascending palatine a. and the tonsillar a. The body of the tongue is nourished on averaged by 25 arterial branches from the deep lingual a. The ventral surface of the tongue, as well as the sublingual gland and the floor of the mouth, is supplied by the sublingual a. The termination of the lingual a. The termination of the lingual a. anastomoses with the submental branch of the facial a. to form the lingual frenal a. Except for a submucous arterial network on the dorsum of the tongue, all blood vessels are separated completely by the lingual septum, through which arterial anastomoses (2.0 mm in diameter) can be found occasionally.
