anywhere between gluteal region and popliteal fossa- most commonly inferior 1/3rd of thigh

2

What are the muscles of the posterior thigh muscles?

semimembranosus; semitendinosus; biceps femoris

3

What is the proximal attachemnt for the semitendinosus; semimembranosus; biceps femoris long heads ?

ischial tuberosity

4

What is the proximal attachment for the biceps femoris short head?

linea aspera

What nerve supplies hamstrings?

tibial division of sciatic nerve

9

What nerve supplies short head of biceps femoris?

common fibular division of sciatic nerve

10

How does the semimembranosus muscle appear?

shiny membranous appearance

11

Why is the semitendinosus called that?

longer tendon than the other muscles

What is the acetabular labrum?

ring of cartilage that surrounds the acetabulum
