The rectus femoris is situated in the middle of the front of the thigh; it is fusiform in shape, and …

The sartorius then the rectus femoris were transected distally and lifted proximally to allow dissection of the deep parts of the quadriceps. Particular attention was paid to the innervation of the muscle. The different branches of the femoral nerves were carefully dissected from proximal (inguinal ligament) to the different vasti.
