    Abstract

    Understanding the anatomy and function of the musculoskeletal system is an important prerequisite for orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and sports scientists. Many questions have accumulated with regard to the direct anterior approach to the hip joint, including blood supply, and muscle architecture and function. These questions were addressed in nine studies. The purposes of this thesis were to: 1. demonstrate the neurovascular structures encountered during the direct anterior approach to the hip joint. 2. investigate the innervation of the quadriceps muscle group and blood supply to the femur, and 3. investigate the architecture and function of the quadriceps muscle group.
