Flashcards in Clinically Correlated Anatomy of the Female Deck (11):

The female uterus is usually in this position



Position of the uterus with respect to the bladder

Anteroinferior face of the anteverted uterus rests against the bladder


Four parts of the oviducts and the function of the two parts we actually care about

Infundibulum, ampulla, isthmus, interstitium.

Infundibulum - Contains the fimbriae
Ampulla - Site of fertilization


Remember "water under the bridge?"

Rehash what the hell that means

The ureters pass under (inferior to) the uterine arteries


Principal nerves of the breast

Anterior and lateral cutaneous branches of thoracic intercostal nerves T3-T5


Principal arteries of the breast

Internal thoracic (internal mammary) artery, lateral thoracic artery, thoracodorsal artery and thoracoacromial artery


The dermatome at the level of the nipple is _______

T4 (in males)


As the ladies get older, their breasts will begin to fall. Why is this?

Cooper ligament weakens (this is the suspensory ligament of the breasts)


We see these glands in the areola

Sebaceous glands


The majority of the lymph from the female breast drains to the:

Ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes


Congrats, you are done. These flash cards have been what first aid finds important for female reproductive anatomy. This lecture also covered the pelvic diaphragm and floor, lower abdominal organs, uterus anatomy, and surgical techniques. Not high yield and/or already covered and/or covered in previous modules.

Recommend watching the lecture once or twice to brush up on old stuff, but this is not where I would focus since we have been tested on all of this before.
