Obturator nerve

Supplies adductor longus, adductor brevis, garcilis, and pectineus...posterior branch supplies the obturator externus and adductor Magnus

1

Sciatic nerve

Is really 2 nerves bound together- tibial nerve and common fibular nerve

Supplies no structures in the gluteal region; it innervates the posterior thigh muscles, all leg and foot muscles, and the skin of most of the leg and foot

2

Clunial nerves supply

Skin of gluteal region as far as greater trochanter

3

Posterior cutaneous nerve of thigh supplies

Skin of buttocks, skin over posterior aspect of thigh and calf ...

4

Superior gluteal nerve supply

Gluteus medius, gluteus minimis, and tensor fasciae latae

5

Inferior gluteal nerve supply

Gluteus Maximus

6

Nerve to quadratus femoris supply

Innervates hip joint, inferior gemellus, and quadratus femoris

7

Nerve to obturator internus

Supplies superior gemellus and obturator internus

8

Sural nerve supplies

Skin of posterior and lateral aspects of leg and lateral side of foot

9

Common fibular nerve branches

The c.f.n. leaves the fossa and wind around the neck of the fibula, where its most prone to injury. Here it divides into its terminal branches, deep and superficial fibular nerves

10

Most inferior branches of the Posterior cutaneous nerve of thigh supplies

The skin that overlies the popliteal fossa

11

What nerve innervates between 1st and 2nd toe

Deep fibular nerve

12
