2. Femoral Triangle

The femoral triangle, or Scarpa's triangle, is in the upper thigh. The borders of this structure are the sartorius, the longest muscle in the body, the adductor longus muscles ,and the inguinal ligament at the top. This triangle is important because essential structures pass through it, including the femoral artery, whose branches come from the triangle's base.
