    main blood vessels of the leg- femoral artery
  19. adductor magnus arises from:
    inserts on:
    • arises from outer border of ischial pubic ramis
    • UPPER part inserts along linea aspera
    • LOWER part inserts on adductor tubercle of femur
  20. adductor brevis and longus attach to:
    insert on:
    • attach to body of the pubis
    • insert on femur- next to adductor magnus

    • Brevis= ABove

  21. which muscle is the shortest of the adductors?
  22. pectineus attachments:
    • superior ramusof the pubis
    • pectineal line of the femur
  23. which adductor is the most medial?
  24. attachments of the gracilis?
    • body of inferior ramus of the pubis
    • superior part of medial surface of tibia
  25. what is the main function of the adductors?

    • wing of the ilium
    • anterior surface of the greater trochanter
  28. attachments of the gluteus medius:

    • gluteus maximus
    • tensor fascia lata
  33. the iliotibial tract attaches:
    proximal ileum to proximal tibia
  34. what are the flexor muscles?
    • psoas major
    • iliacus
    • rectus femoris
    • sartorius
  35. which muscles pass under the inguinal ligament & over the pubic ramis?
    • psoas major
    • iliacus
  36. attachments for psoas major?
    • lumbar spine (transverse processes of all 5 lumbar veterbra)
    • lateral portions of bodies & veterbral discs
  37. attachments for iliacus?
    • iliac crest (inner aspect)
    • lesser trochanter
  38. attachments for rectus femoris:
    • 2 heads on AIIS & slightly superior to acetabulum
    • tibial tuberosity
  39. attachments for Sartorius:
    • ASIS
    • superior part of medial surface of tibia
  40. function of Sartorius:
    helps to flex the hip & it can also produce lateral rotation @ the hip
  41. pathway for the Sartorius:
