Imaging findings OR Procedure Details



The different approaches is important for MSK biopsy used to minimize potential tumor seeding of adjacent soft-tissue structures and compartments.


The sartorius muscle is in relation to the upper and anterior regions of the thigh. For this reason the sartorious pathway has important implications in the spread of malignant and inflammatory diseases,  and surgical approaches. Imaging may be a useful tool for depiction of sartorius involvement


The classic anatomical situation, the LCFA originates proximally from the deep femoral artery, most commonly with a larger descending branch. Usually, the descending branch of the LCFA gives rise to the biggest perforators for the anterolateral thigh flap region

The cutaneous perforators originating from the lateral circumflex femoral artery provide vascular supply to the ALT region.

The anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap has widespread use throughout the body.

The vascular supply of the ALT flap skin is maintained by perforators.


The ALT has a complex local vasculature, which can be of importance for the surgical approach.
