Abstract

The independent anteromedial muscle bundles situated lateral to the nerve to tensor fasciae latae were examined in 13 human pelvic halves. Each of these independent muscle layers was shown not to be an independent muscle but part of gluteus medius. On the basis of its innervation, tensor fasciae latae is closely related to the most anteromedial muscle layer of gluteus medius. From their pattern of innervation, these anteromedial bundles may be considered as a continuation of gluteus medius rather than as completely independent. Furthermore, tensor fasciae latae is closely related to the most anteromedial of these bundles.
