- The sartorius attaches from the ASIS to the pes anserine tendon at the proximal anteromedial tibia.
- The sartorius flexes, abducts, and laterally rotates the thigh at the hip joint.
- It anteriorly tilts, depresses, and contralaterally rotates the same-side pelvis at the hip joint.
- It also flexes the leg (and/or thigh) at the knee joint.
NOTES OF TRIVIA:
- The sartorius is the longest muscle in the human body.
- It crosses the hip joint anteriorly but crosses the knee joint posteriorly.
- It is nicknamed “the tailor muscle” (sartorius means tailor in Latin).
