Intertrochanteric crest - Crista intertrochanterica


The intertrochanteric crest is located on the caudal surface of the proximal extremity of femur. It is the distal continuation of the medial border of greater trochanter.

NB: it should not be confused with the intertrochanteric line that is located on the cranial surface of femur.
