93

T/F: neurovascular structures in the pelvis lie intraperitoneally

F

94

T/F: in the pelvis, nerves are generally more lateral to the vessels

T

95

T/F: in the pelvis, the veins are generally more medial to the arteries

F

96

T/F: all branches of the sacral plexus exit through the greater sciatic foramen

F, the nerve to the piriformis does not exit the greater sciatic foramen

97

T/F: the pudendal nerve returns to the pelvis via the lesser sciatic foramen

T. It leaves the greater sciatic foramen, hooks around the ischial tuberosity, and reenters the pelvis through the lesser sciatic foramen
