Fascia of the thigh Superficial is the continuity of the superficial fascia of anterior abdominal wall Deep fascia thickened laterally to form the illiotibial tact 1. Has a gap called saphenous opening 2. Divided into 3 compartments by 3 intermuscular septa
Muscle compartments in the thigh In the thigh, there are medial (adductor), anterior (extensor), and posterior (flexor) compartments.
Anterior Thigh Muscles Anterior thigh muscles are the flexors of the hip and extensors of the knee.
Iliacus Action: Chief flexor of the hip joint. Nerve Supply: Femoral nerve
Psoas Major Action: Flexes thigh on trunk Nerve Supply: femoral nerve
Pectineus Action: Flexion & adduction of hip joint Nerve supply: Femoral nerve
Sartorius Action : 1. Flexion, abduction and Lateral rotation of thigh at hip joint. 2. Flexion leg at knee joint Nerve Supply: Femoral nerve
This combination of lateral rotation and flexion of the hip and flexion of the knee gave tailors particularly enlarged sartorius muscles. Looking at the bottom of one's foot, as if checking to see if one had stepped in gum, demonstrates all four actions of sartorius. Tailor's muscle
Quadriceps femoris Four muscles make up this group. They are: rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedialis Action: extension of knee Rectus femoris also flexes the hip joint as well. Nerve Supply: Femoral nerve
Medial Compartment of Thigh 1. Gracilis Adduction of the thigh @ the hip joint & flexion of knee joints 2. Adductor longus Adduction of the thigh @ the hip joint. 1 2 3 4
3. Adductor brevis Adduction of the thigh @ the hip joint. 4. Adductor magnus has 2 parts. Ant. Part is an adductor Post. Part is an extensor of the thigh @ the hip joint 5. Obturator externus Lateral rotation of hip joint Obturator nerve but the post. part of adductor magnus is supplied by tibial nerve which is a branch of the sciatic nerve.
Adductor magnus & Obturator externus 1. Obturator externus Is innervated by the obturator nerve 2. Adductor magnus The adductor part is innervated by the obturator nerve & the hamstring part is innervated by the tibial division of the sciatic nerve 1 2
Pectineus, Adductors longus & brevis 1. Pectineus Is innervated by the femoral nerve 2. Adductor longus Is innervated by the obturator nerve 3. Adductor brevis Is innervated by the obturator nerve 1 2 3
Adductor Canal, subsartorial canal; Hunter canal Approximately 15 cm. It extends from the apex of the femoral triangle, where the sartorius crosses over the adductor longus, to the adductor hiatus in the tendon of the adductor magnus. Contents: Femoral artery and vein, the saphenous nerve, and the nerve to vastus medialis.
Adductor Hiatus The adductor hiatus is an opening or gap between the aponeurotic distal attachment of the adductor part of the adductor magnus and the tendinous distal attachment of the hamstring part. The adductor hiatus transmits the femoral artery and vein from the adductor canal in the thigh to the popliteal fossa posterior to the knee.
3. Semimembranosus Extension of hip joint & flexion & medial rotation of knee joint. Nerve Supply: Tibial portion of sciatic nerve
Posterior Compartment of the Thigh 1. Biceps femoris Extension of the thigh @ the hip joint & flexion & lateral rotation of the knee joint. Nerve supply: Long head: tibial portion of sciatic nerve Short head: common peroneal portion of sciatic nerve 2. Semitendinosus Extension of the thigh @ the hip joint & flexion & medial rotation of the knee joint. Nerve supply: Tibial portion of sciatic nerve
1. Gluteus maximus Extension of the thigh @ the hip joint, lateral rotation, steadies the thigh, assists in rising from a sitting position Inferior gluteal nerve 1 3
2. Tensor fasciae latae Assists gluteus maximus in extending the knee joint Superior gluteal nerve
3. Gluteus medius & minimus Abduction and medial rotation of the thigh; tilts pelvis when walking to permit opp. Leg to clear the ground. Superior gluteal nerve
Positive Trendelenburg's sign If right gluteus medius and minimus muscles are paralyzed, the unsupported left side of the pelvis falls (sags) instead of rising; normally, the pelvis rises.
4. Piriformis m. Lateral rotation of the thigh@ hip joint nerve Supply: S1 & S2 nerves Important landmark of the gluteal region. 5. Obturator Internus Same function as piriformis Nerve supply: (L5-S1) nerves to obturator internus
Muscles of the gluteal region Cont’d. 6. Superior Gemellus Lateral rotation of the thigh @ the hip joint (L5-S1) nerves to obturator internus 7. Inferior Gemellus Same function as superior gamellus Nerve to quadratus femoris ( L5, S1)
8. Quadratus Femoris Lateral rotation of the thigh @ the hip joint (L5-S1) nerves to quadratus femoris 8
The femoral triangle is bounded Superiorly :Inguinal ligament that forms the base of the femoral triangle. Medially :Adductor longus. Laterally :Sartorius. Apex is where the lateral border of the sartorius crosses the medial border of the adductor longus. Roof :Fascia lata, subcutaneous tissue, and skin. Floor :Iliopsoas laterally and the pectineus medially.
Femoral Triangle Contents : (lat. to med.) 1. Femoral nerve 2. Femoral artery 3. Femoral vein 4. Deep inguinal lymph nodes
Boundaries of Popliteal fossa Superolateral : biceps femoris Superomedial: semimembranosus & semitendinosus Inferolateral: lateral head of gastrocnemius Inferomedial: medial head of gastrocnemius
Contents of the popliteal fossa 1. Termination of the small saphenous vein. 2. Popliteal arteries and veins. 3. Tibial and common fibular nerves. 4. Posterior cutaneous nerve of thigh 5. Popliteal lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels
Floor This is formed by: 1. popliteal surface of the femur, 2. capsule of knee joint & 3. popliteus muscle
Fascia Muscles of anterior compartment Muscles of lateral compartment Muscles of posterior compartment (superficial & deep layers) Main muscles responsible for ankle joint movements LEG
Fascia of the Leg Deep fascia (crural fascia). Leg divided into 3 fascia compartments (anterior, posterior, lateral) by 3 intermuscular septa. In the region of the ankle the fascia forms retinacula : Superior & inferior extensor retinacula Flexor retinaculum Fibular retinaculum
Cross-section through the left leg (post. View) Muscles of the anterior compartment of leg dorsiflex the ankles, extend the toes, & invert the foot. (deep fibular nerve). Muscles in the posterior compartment plantarflex the ankle, flex the toe, & invert the foot. (tibial nerve). Muscles in the lateral compartment evert the foot. (superficial fibular nerve).
Muscles of anterior compartment 1. Tibialis anterior Dorsiflexion & inversion of the foot at the ankle. 2. Extensor digitorum longus Extension of lateral 4 digits & dorsiflexion of the ankle 1 2
3. Extensor hallucis longus Action: Extension of big toe & dorsiflexion of the ankle Deep fibular nerve from common fibular nerve 4. Fibularis Tertius Action :Dorsiflexion and eversion of foot N. supply : Deep fibular nerve
Muscles of lateral compartment 1. Fibularis longus Eversion & plantar flexion of foot. 2. Fibularis brevis Eversion & plantar flexion of foot. Superficial fibular nerve from common fibular nerve 1 2
Footdrop and loss of eversion May cause sensory loss over lateral leg and dorsum of foot Causes Direct trauma as nerve passes superficially around neck of fibula Injury to common fibular nerve
Foot drop Foot drop, sometimes called drop foot, is a general term for difficulty lifting the front part of the foot. The loss of dorsiflexion of the ankle causes footdrop.
Posterior compartment of leg Muscles in the posterior (flexor) compartment of leg are organized into two groups; superficial and deep. Nerve supply: Tibial nerve
Muscles of the Posterior Compartment of the Leg Superficial group of muscles 1.Gastrocnemius 2.Soleus 3.Plantaris Deep group of muscles 1.Popliteus 2.Tibialis posterior 3.Flexor digitorum longus 4.Flexor hallucis longus Muscles mainly plantarflex, invert the foot and flex the toes.
Superficial Group 1. Gastrocnemius Action: Plantar flexion of the foot (@ the ankle), knee flexion Nerve Supply: Tibial nerve 2. Soleus Action: Plantarflexion of the foot Nerve Supply: Tibial nerve
3. Plantaris: Action: plantarflexion of the foot Nerve Supply: Tibial nerve
Gastrocnemius has two heads; a medial and a lateral head. The two heads of the Gastrocnemius muscle and the Soleus muscle are together called the Triceps Surae. Gastrocnemius and plantaris cross knee joint and thus also flex knee. All three contribute to calcaneal tendon
Muscles of posterior compartment (deep layer) 2. Popliteus Flexion of knee joint 3. Flexor digitorum longus Flexion of DIP of lateral 4 digits Tibial nerve 2 3 4 5
4. Flexor hallucis longus Flexion of big toe 5. Tibialis posterior Plantarflexion & inversion of foot Nerve Supply: tibial nerve
