Which hip muscle attaches on the upper part of the linea aspera of the femur?
Likewise, which muscles attach to the greater trochanter of the femur?
The greater trochanter gives attachment to a number of muscles (including the gluteus medius and minimus, piriformis, obturator internus and externus, and gemelli muscles), and the lesser trochanter receives the insertion of several muscles (including the psoas major and iliacus muscles).
Secondly, where does the adductor magnus attach? The adductor magnus is described as a large triangular muscle that has a proximal tendinous attachment to the inferior ramus of the pubis, the ramus of the ischium, and the ischial tuberosity.
Consequently, what muscles attach to the femur?
|Quadratus femoris muscle||Insertion||Intertrochanteric crest|
|Obturator externus muscle||Insertion||Trochanteric fossa|
|Pectineus muscle||Insertion||Pectineal line|
|Adductor longus muscle||Insertion||Medial ridge of linea aspera|
Which muscles generally originate on the pubic bone and insert on the linea aspera?
Adductor Brevis originates on the inferior pubic ramus and inserts onto the linea aspera.
