What muscle originates on the iliac fossa and inserts on the lesser trochanter of the femur?
What muscle originates on the iliac fossa and inserts on the lesser trochanter of the femur?
The bony pelvis is composed of the os coxae, sacrum, and coccyx. The os coxae, commonly called the hip bone, is made up of three fused bones. The bones that make up the hip bone are the ilium, ischium, and pubis.
