What separates anterior and posterior compartments of the thigh?
Medial intermuscular septum
What separates the posterior and anterior compartments of the thigh?
Lateral Intermuscular septum
What is the deep fascia of the thigh?
What nerve has branches that supply most of the cutaneous innervation to the anterior thigh?
What nerves supply the upper aspect of the skin of the thigh?
ilioinguinal and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
Where does the great saphenous vein enter the thigh?
posterior to the medial femoral condyle at the knee
Where does the great saphenous vein terminate?
in the femoral vein
T or F: some of the tributaries of the great saphenous vein connect to veins of thorax and axilla to create collateral circulation between superior and inferior vena cavae
When might collateral circulation of great saphenous to the thorax and axilla be important?
When venous return through the liver is blocked
What is found 3-4cm inferior to the medial attachment of inguinal ligament to the pubic tubercle?
What is the site of femoral hernias?
saphenous opening (most common in females)
What are the superior attachments of the fascia lata?
inguinal ligament, iliac crest, sacrotuberous ligament, ischial tuberosity, ischiopubic ramus, symphisis pubis
What does the fascia lata form as it thickens laterally?
What muscles insert on the iliotibial tract?
gluteus maximus, tensor fasciae latae
What do the intermuscular septa attach on?
What does the fascia lata thicken to form at the knee?
lateral and medial retinacula of patella
What does the fascia lata continue as in the leg?
Which quadriceps muscle crosses both the hip and knee joint?
What three muscles insert on the pes anserinus?
sartorius, gracilis, semitendinosus
What is located within the quadriceps tendon?
What inserts on the lesser trochanter in the floor of the femoral triangle?
What surrounds the femoral artery and vein?
What forms the boarders of the femoral triangle?
inguinal ligament, sartorius, and medial border of adductor longus
What is the floor of the femoral triangle composed of?
iliopsoas, pectineus, and adductor longus
T or F: the femoral N., artery and vein pass superficial to the inguinal ligament
T or F: the fascia lata is an extension of the transversalis fascia from the trunk that extends deep to the inguinal ligament
False - this describes the FEMORAL sheath
What is contained in the lateral compartment of the femoral sheath?
What is contained in the middle compartment of the femoral sheath?
What is contained in the medial compartment of the femoral sheath?
lymph nodes and fat
