2.1.17 Review of blood vessels and nerves of the hip region
Now let’s review the vessels and nerves of the hip region.
Here’s the long saphenous vein, and the femoral vein, becoming the external iliac vein.
Here’s the common iliac artery, the internal iliac, giving off the superior gluteal and inferior gluteal arteries. Here’s the external iliac, becoming the femoral artery.
Here’s the superficial circumflex iliac, and the external pudendal. Here’s the deep femoral, giving off the lateral circumflex femoral, and the medial circumflex femoral arteries.
Now the nerves: the femoral nerve, the obturator nerve, the sciatic nerve, the inferior gluteal nerve, and the superior gluteal nerve.
