Femoral triangle and femoral sheath contents mnemonic


The femoral triangle is a subfascial space bounded superiorly by the inguinal ligament, medially by the adductor longus muscle, and laterally by the sartorius muscle.

Contents of the femoral triangle mnemonic:

The structures of the femoral triangle, from lateral to medial, can be remembered as, NAVEL 
Nerve (femoral nerve)
Artery (femoral artery)
Vein (femoral vein)
Empty space
Lymphatics (lymphatic vessels, deep inguinal lymph nodes)

If lateral medial confuses you, you can remember it as, "Vee-nus (venous system and lymphatics) closer to pee-nus (penis)."

A funnel-shaped fascial tube contained within the femoral triangle. The femoral sheath is derived from the transversalis and iliopsoas fascia. It is subdivided into three compartments that contain the femoral artery, femoral vein, and femoral canal.

Mnemonic: ShAVE - The SHeath contains an Artery, Vein, and Empty space.

That's all!
