Background The anatomy and clinical significance of obliterated umbilical artery called as medial umbilical ligament (MUL) have not been documented well in literature. In this study, we investigated anatomical variations of MUL determined by laparoscopic exploration of abdomen in children and anatomy dissection on cadaver.
