1

where does the common iliac a split?

b/w L5-S1

2

larger terminal branch of common iliac

external iliac a

3

branches off external iliac a

- inferior epigastric a
- deep circumflex iliac a
- becomes the femoral a

4

branches off the femoral a

- superficial external pudendal a
- deep external pudendal a
- profunda femoris

5

largest branch off femoral a

profunda femoris
comes off 2-5 cm distal to inguinal ligament

6

course of profunda femoris

from lateral aspect of femoral a
spirals posterioringerior then to medial

7

what does the ascending branch of lateral femoral circumlex anastomose with?

- medial femoral circumflex
- superiof gluteal
- deep circumflex iliac

8

the ascending branch of lateral femoral circumflex enters the fibrous capsule as...

retinacular branches

9

most important a for adults neck of femur ***

medial femoral circumflex

10

how often does the medial femoral circumflex come off the femoral?

25%

11

supplies fat in acetabular foss and around round ligament to head of femur

acetabular branches oof medial femoral circumflex

12

joins obturator n lateral wall pelvis to enter obturator canal

obturator a

13

w/ ligament head of femus, supplying the head of femur

foveolar branch of obturator a

14

needed for kids, but not for adults head of femur

foveolar branch

15

vein that enters the greater sciatic foramen inferior to the piriformis

inferior gluteal v
- this v anastomoses with medial femoral circumflex and 1st perforating

16

shape of superficial inguinal nodes

lop-sided T
stem of T parallels the great saphenous (inferior group)(4-6 nodes)
cross of T parallels the inguinal ligament (superior group)(5-7 nodes)

17

nodes within femoral sheath

deep inguinal nodes
located medial to the femoral v

18

uppermost deep inguinal node

cloquet or node of rosenmuller
- near the femoral ring, superior femoral canal
