Which of the following makes up the myopectineal orifice of Fruchaud?
|C||Inferior epigastric artery|
1.Fruchaud’s contribution to inguinal herniology was to examine common anatomic etiology of direct, indirect and femoral hernias, rather than to look at each individually.
a. He popularized the use of the term myopectineal orifice, an area bound superiorly by internal oblique & transverses abdominis muscles, medially by rectus muscle & sheath, laterally by the illiopsoas muscle and inferiorly by cooper’s ligament (Pecten pubis).
b. Critical anatomic landmarks such as the inguinal ligament spermatic cord, and the femoral vessels are contained within this area.
c. This funnel shaped orifice is lined in its entirely by the transversalis fascia.
