Anatomy 2300Lec#13 SPECIAL AREAS OF THE LOWER LIMBS --Special areas refer to a region defined by very specific anatomical structures. Femoral Triangle --Triangular space in the superoanterior third of the thigh; found at the junction between the trunk and the lower limb. Found best if thigh is in the flexed, abducted, and slightly laterally-rotated position Sartorius Muscle (lateral) Iliopsoas (lateral floor) Sart. Pectineus (medial floor) Adductor longus Muscle (medial) Addct.long. The lateral floor is made of the Iliopsoas muscle. The medial floor is made of the Pectineus muscle. Contents of the triangle (medial to lateral): Femoral Vein Femoral Artery Femoral Nerve --All of these are very superficial  easy access for doctors/nurses/researches. If you apply pressure here, you can reduce blood loss from lower limbs. Adductor Canal --Compartment found between the quads and the medial femoris muscles in the medial 1/3 of thigh. --Found deep to the Sartorius muscle (serves as the roof of the canal). --Contents: Femoral Artery Femoral Vein Saphenous Nerve (branch of femoral nerve, is cutaneous from medial leg) --At the end of the canal is the Adductor Hiatus (opening in the adductor magnus muscle). When it enters behind the knee, changes to the popliteal nerve, vein, and artery. Popliteal Fossa --Diamond-shaped depression on the posterior aspect of the knee --Borders: 1. Semimembranosus (superior medial) 2. Semitendinosus (superior medial) 3. Gastrocnemius—medial head (inferior medial) 4. Gastrocnemius—lateral head (inferior lateral) 5. Biceps femoris – long head (superior lateral) LATERAL MEDIAL Biceps Femoris— Semimembranosus long head Semitendinosus Gastrocnemius – Gastrocnemius – lateral head medial head # 1, #2, and #5 are all hamstring muscles. While #3 and #4 are part of calf muscle. --Contents: --Popliteal Artery --Popliteal Vein --Tibial Nerve (branch of sciatic nerve on posterior thigh) --AVIATION  tells the order from deep to superficial!! Artery  Vein  Nerve. Also all right in the middle of the fossa. --Common fibular (peroneal) nerve (on the lateral border) --Termination of the small saphenous vein (dumps into the popliteal vein)
