Deep layer of the lower third of the thigh
Deep layer of the lower third of the thigh. At top, find labelled the muscular branches of the femoral nerve (1), the lateral circumflex femoral artery (2), the profunda femoris artery (3), the femoral artery (4) and the great saphenous vein (5) together with the closely running saphenous nerve (6). The most medial structure of the thigh is the Gracilis (7) running downwards. Further down, the cut stump of the Sartorius shows itself (8). In the middle, find the partly resected Quadriceps femoris (9) together with the Vastus intermedius (11) and femur (10). The arrangement of the femoral musculature deserves attention.
