Beschreibung

The anterior superior iliac spine is the uppermost of projection on anterior border of the ala of ilium, situated at the junction of the crest and anterior border; its outer border gives attachment to the fascia lata, and the Tensor fasciæ latæ, its inner border, to the Iliacus; while its extremity affords attachment to the inguinal ligament and gives origin to the Sartorius. Beneath this eminence is a notch from which the Sartorius takes origin and across which the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve passes.
