femoral canal
the passage that conducts the femoral vessels from the abdomen to the thigh.
femoral epiphyseolysis
occurs in pigs 5 to 12 months old. There is moderate lameness in one or both hindlimbs. The onset is sudden and often precipitated by physical effort; it worsens within a few days so that the pig cannot use the limb. There is crepitus at the hip joint. There is an underlying osteochondrosis.
femoral head
rounded proximal articulating extremity of the femur; participates in the hip joint.
femoral head necrosis
femoral hernia
protrusion of a loop of intestine into the femoral canal, a tubular passageway that carries nerves and blood vessels to the thigh.
femoral ligament
ligament of the femoral head which runs from the depths of the acetabulum (hip socket) to the pit (fossa) in the head of the femur. See Table 12.
femoral nerve
the largest branch of the lumbar plexus. See Table 14.
femoral slipped head
