1

What forms the greater sciatic foramen and the lesser sciatic foramen?

Sacrotuberous and sacrospinous ligaments

2

What are the wall muscles of the pelvis?

Iliacus, psoas, obturator externus, obturator internus and piriformis,

3

The iliac fossa joins psoas as what?

iliopsoas

4

Where does the iliopsoas insert into?

Lesser trochanter of femur

5

What is the function of the iliacus?

Hip flexion

6

What innervates the iliacus?

Femoral nerve

7

Fibers of the psoas pass from?

T12 - L4

8

What is the function of psoas?

Hip flexion, bend trunk lateral, raise trunk from supine position

9

What innervates the psoas?

Lumbar plexus direct branches L2-4 anterior rami

10

What are the gluteal muscles?

Gluteus maximus, medius and minimus

11

What do the gluteal muscles attach to?

Pelvic bones but to within pelvic cavity

12

Function of gluteal muscles?

Act on the hip joint

13

Fibers of obturator externus pass?

From the outer surface of obturator membrane to trochanteric fossa of femur

14

Fibers of obturator internus pass?

From the inner surface of obturator membrane to medial surface of greater trochanter of femur

15

What is the function of obturator internus?

Lateral rotation of the hip

16

What innervates the obturator internus?

Nerve to obturator internus direct from sacral plexus (L5, S1)

17

Fibers of the piriformis pass?

From the anterior surface of the sacrum to greater trochanter of the femur

18

What is the function of piriformis?

Lateral rotation of the hip joint

19

What innervates piriformis?

Nerve to piriformis direct branch of sacral plexus (S1 and S2)

20

What is the pelvic diaphragm?

A muscular floor composed of elevator ani and coccyges to prevent prolapse

21

What is the muscular roof of the anal triangle?

Levator ani

22

Fibers pass in the coccyges from?

Ischial spine and sacrospinous ligament to the coccyx and inferior sacrum

23

What is the function of the coccygeus?

Support pelvic viscera, flexion of coccyx

24

What innervates the Coccygeus?

Direct branches from sacral plexus (S4-S5)

25

What are the two muscles involved in the levator ani?

Pubococcygeus and iliococcygeus

26

Describe the fibres in the Pubococcygeus?

Most medial fibres, attach to and support vagina/prostat gland and rectum

27

Describe the fibres in the Iliococcygeus?

More lateral fibres of elevator ani, anterior to coccygeus

28

What is pubococcygeus divided into?

Puborectalis, puboprostaticus and pubovaginalis

29

What must relax to allow urination and defecation?

Levator ani

30

What innervates the pubococcygeus?

Pudendal and nerve to levator ani
