Caption: Figure 2 Cadaveric dissection showing a lateral approach (right knee); the approach utilizes an intermuscular plane between the biceps femoris (tendon designated by triangle), which is innervated by the sciatic nerve, and the iliotibial band (designated by star), which is innervated by the superior gluteal nerve.
Anatomic concerns also include branches from the femoral innervated muscles for whom trajectories are not clear, relative variability in innervation patterns to the anterior capsule in the presence of an accessory obturator nerve, accessory femoral nerve or superior gluteal nerve branches, the possibility of articular branches that start more inferiorly along the course of the femoral nerve and run with vessels, and a scenario where one common trunk supplies the joint, vessels, and muscles.
