Iliopectineal Arch

  • Iliopectineal Arch:
    • This is a medial thickening of the iliopsoas fascia:
      • Deep to the inguinal ligament
  • The surgeon does not directly use this arch:
    • But it is important as the junction of a number of structures of the groin
  • These structures are:
    • The insertion of fibers of the external oblique aponeurosis
    • The insertion of fibers of the inguinal ligament
    • The origin of part of the internal oblique muscle
    • The origin of part of the transversus abdominis muscle
    • Part of the lateral attachment of the iliopubic tract
    • It contributes also to the lateral wall of the femoral sheath
