About the Book

In this enhanced video book of the Human Anatomy Video Project series the structures of the distal lower extremity are taught. The posterior thigh is included to emphasize the course of femoral artery and the sciatic nerve toward the popliteal region. The popliteal region and knee are considered in considerable detail. More distally, the compartments of the leg are discussed along with the course of vessels and nerves through it.
