femoral triangle
(superiorly) the inguinal ligament
(medially) the medial border of the adductor longus muscle
(laterally) medial border of the sartorius muscle
how to bring out the sartorius?
L. Tailor

Flexes, abducts, laterally rotates the thigh at the hip joint, and flexes the leg at the knee joint
femoral nerve roots and innervates what muscles?
(L2,3,4) innervates all of the following muscles:
Iliacus - flexes the thigh
Pectinius – adducts and flexes the thigh
Sartorius – flexes, abducts, and laterally rotates thigh, flexes leg at the knee joint
Quadriceps – extends leg at the knee:
Rectus femoris (also flexes thigh)
Vastus medialis
Vastus lateralis
Vastus intermedius
femoral nerve anterior or posterior roots?
what muscle stabilizes the hip while in standing position?
Psoas maj. m.

Adductor brevis
Adductor magnus
Obturator externus
what passes through the adductor hiatus?
femoral a. and v.
muscle commonly used for surgical graft in muscles or tendons in forearm
muscles that cross hip and knee joint?
Rectus femoris – flexes the hip and extends the knee

Gracilis – adducts the hip & flexes the knee

Sartorius – flexes, laterally rotates the hip, flexes the knee

Hamstrings - extend the hip and flex and rotate the knee
most anterior structure of the pes ansirinus
sartorius, gracillis, and semitendinousis
what structures traverse the adductor canal?
adductor hiatus?
saphenous n
femoral n

hiatus - only the artery and vein pass through
cruciate anastamosis around the hip joint

Femoral n. branches after what structure?
Inguinal ligament
femoral nerve - located inside or outside femoral sheath?
femoral triangle borders
what is found here?
Superiorly – inguinal ligament

Posteriorly – Adductor longus & magnus muscles

Contents of the canal include the following:
- Femoral artery & vein
- Saphenous nerve
- Nerve to vastus medialis
