First and foremost, the bones of thigh along with the femoral triangle and femoral sheath has been delineated. Furthermore, muscles of anterior, medial and lateral compartment have been brought under discussion. Additionally, certain clinical considerations including hamstring injury, rupture of rectus femoris in conjunction with femoral hernia and cerebral palsy has been highlighted.
Bones of Thigh
In section one, the educator starts off with the explanation of Bones of Thigh and focuses primarily on Femur - Bone of Thigh. Under the Do You Know? Heading, various other names for Femur bones are discussed followed by demonstration of Anatomy of Thigh Bones and Femoral Triangle. To further elaborate on the topic, the educator clarifies the concept of Femoral Sheath followed by elucidation of Adductor (Subsartorial) Canal.
Muscles of Anterior Compartment
In section two, the concept of Muscles of Anterior Compartment is explained. After a brief table representation of different Muscles of Anterior Thigh, the educator comprehensively introduces each muscle of anterior thigh separately such as Psoas Major Muscle, Iliacus Muscle, Tensor Fascia Latae, Sartorius Muscle, Quadriceps Femoris Muscle Group, and Quadriceps Femoris Muscle Group.
Muscles of Medial Compartment
Section three is about the Muscles of Medial Compartment. The educator begins by providing a brief overview in tabular form of all the Muscles of Medial Thigh. After this, a detailed demonstration of every muscle of medial thigh is provided separately such as Pectineus Muscle, Adductor Longus, Adductor Brevis, Adductor Magnus, Gracilis and Obturator Externus.
Muscles of Posterior Compartment
Section four is regarding the Muscles of Posterior Compartment. In the start, an overview of all the Muscles of Posterior Thigh (Hamstring) is presented in tabular form followed by a detailed demonstration and explanation of each muscle of posterior thigh separately such as Semitendinosus Muscle, Semimembranosus Muscle, Biceps Femoris Muscle, and Muscles of Posterior Thigh. Moreover, the educator also comprehensively introduces Hamstring Injury and highlights the different grades in which it occurs.
The prime focus of section five is the Clinical Considerations which can take place in case of thigh muscles. The educator explains Rupture of the Rectus Femoris and Rupture of the Ligamentum Patellae. The case of Femoral hernia is also described in detail along with Symptoms of this disease and Femoral Hernia Surgery. At the end of this section, the educator highlights Adductor Muscles and Cerebral Palsy.
