Flashcards in Pelvis/LE - Gluteal Muscles Deck (42):
1

Gluteus maximus - O

ilium posterior to posterior gluteal line, and dorsal surface of sacrum and coccyx

2

Gluteus maximus - I

most fibers end in iliotibial tract

3

Gluteus maximus - N

inferior gluteal nerve

4

Gluteus maximus - A

hip extension between flexion and standing assists hip lateral rotation hip stabilization

5

Gluteus medius - O

external surface of ilium between anterior and posterior gluteal lines

6

Gluteus medius - I

lateral surface of greater trochanter of femur

7

Gluteus medius - N

10

Gluteus minimus - I

anterior surface of greater trochanter of femur

11

Gluteus minimus - N

superior gluteal nerve

12

Gluteus minimus - A

hip abduction anterior portion: hip medial rotation keeps pelvis level when opposite leg elevated

13

Tensor fasciae latae - O

ASIS and anterior part of iliac crest

14

Tensor fasciae latae - I

iliotibial tract

15

Tensor fasciae latae - N

superior gluteal nerve

16

Tensor fasciae latae - A

hip flexion stabilizes extended knee joint with gluteus maximus

17

Piriformis - O

anterior surface of S2-S4 and superior margin of greater sciatic notch passes through greater sciatic foramen

18

Piriformis - I

superior border of greater trochanter

19

Piriformis - N

branches of anterior rami of S1

20

Piriformis - A

extended hip lateral rotation flexed hip abduction hip stabilization (steadies head of femur in acetabulum)

21

Obturator internus - O

pelvic surface of ilium and ischium, obturator membrane passes through lesser sciatic foramen

22

Obturator internus - I

greater trochanter

23

Obturator internus - N

nerve to obturator internus

24
