Flashcards in Nerve and Blood supply of Lower Limb Deck (17)
In the thigh what movements of the hip are produced by the muscles of the medial compartment?
What significant transition occurs at the inguinal ligament?
External Iliac artery -> Femoral artery
Where would you palpate for the femoral artery?
At the femoral triangle just inferior to the inguinal ligament, midway between the ASIS and pubis symphasis
What structures make up the borders of the femoral triangle and what travels through the triangle?
Lateral - Sartorius
Medial - Adductor longus
Superior - Inguinal ligament
Femoral sheath containing nerve/artery/vein (lateral to medial)
Where is the adductor hiatus found and what significant transition occurs within it?
Found in Adductor magnus
Femoral artery becomes popliteal artery
What are the spinal nerve origins of the femoral nerve?
L2-L4 (dorsal divisions)
What are the spinal nerve origins of the obturator nerve?
L2-L4 (ventral divisions)
What are the spinal nerve origins of the sciatic nerve?
What are the spinal nerve origins of the inferior gluteal nerve?
What are the spinal nerve origins of the superior gluteal nerve?
The femoral nerve is motor to which compartment?
Anterior compartment of the thigh
What does the obturator nerve travel though?
The obturator nerve is motor to which compartment?
Which structures help form the greater sciatic foreman?
Greater sciatic notch
The sciatic nerve is made up of which two nerves and what are their root values?
Common peroneal - L4-S2
Tibeal - L4-S3
