Flashcards in Posterior Compartment of the Thigh Deck (15):
1

fascia lata

thick fascia on posterior of upper thigh

covers IT band

2

iliotibiral tract

covered by fascia lata

3

semitendinosus attachements

ischial tuberoisty and sacrotuberous ligament

medial to tibial tuberoisty

4

semitendinosus innervation

tibial nerve l5-s2

5

semitendinosus actions

flexes and internally rotates let at knee joint

extends femur at hip

stabilizes pevlis in saggital plane at hip

6

semimembranosus attachments

originates from ischial tuberosity

inserts on medial tibial condyle, oblique politeal ligament, and popliteal fascia

7

semimembranosus innervation

tibial nerve l5-s2

8

semimembranosus actions

flexes and internally rotates leg at knee joint

etends femur and stabilizes pevlis in saggital plane at hip joint

9

biceps femoris attachments

long-ischial tuberosity and sacrotuberous ligament
short-lateral lip of line aspera in middle third of femur

both-insert into head of fibula

10

biceps femoris innervation

long head-tibial nerve l5-s2

short-common fibular nerve l5-s2

11

biceps femoris actions

extends femur at hip and stabilzs pelvis in sagittal plane

12

sciatic nerve path

terminates near or in popliteal fossa as tibial and common fibular nerves

13

popliteal fossa

where sciatic nerve divides in tibial and common fibular nerves

14

popliteal artery and vein

located

wheere they go

popliteal fossa

disappear though adductor hiatus to the anterior compartment of thight

15

adductor hiatus

where popliteal artery and vein go through to reach anterior compartment of thigh
