Sartorius muscle


Definition

The sartorius muscle is located in the anterior wall of the thigh. This muscle is the longest in the human body and has an elongated shape resembling an S. The sartorius muscle starts in the hip bone and runs through the thigh where it attaches to the tibia. The femoral artery and femoral muscle nerve pass through the sartorius muscle. It enables the bending and outward rotation of the hip, and rotating the knee inward. The sartorius muscle makes it possible for us to sit cross-legged.
