  • The quadriceps femoris is traditionally described as a muscle group composed of the rectus femoris and the three vasti. [...] Key Method Twenty-six cadaveric lower limbs were investigated. The architecture of the quadriceps femoris was examined with special attention to innervation and vascularization patterns. All muscle components were traced from origin to insertion and their affiliations were determined. A TVI was found in all dissections. It was supplied by independent muscular and vascular branches of the…Expand Abstract
