This is the right anterior femur. There are a few ways to say it, but I’m going to call it the right anterior femur for this answer. The femur itself (whether left or right) is often considered the longest and strongest bone in the body.

It is the bone found in your upper leg, and according to multiple sources, is the only bone in that area of the body - which means this picture is of the right anterior and the right posterior femur. Either way, this is the right femur.

The femur extends from the hip bone to the patella, or knee cap. It takes the brunt of a lot of movements in terms of where a movement starts. Every movement with the upper leg starts there.

The best answer I can give, as someone who is not in the nursing field, is that there will be a reduction in blood flow to the medial tarsal artery, or answer C. This is because the knife entered in the dorsum and is pretty close to the ankle.

The medial tarsal artery runs right through that part of the foot, and if it’s cut, the blood won’t flow further down the artery. You may see some spurting action if the wound is not properly cauterized or clotted to stop the bleeding.

Again, it’s an artery that has been cut, so the blood is still pumping through the body because of the heart. As it hits that area, it cannot finish the round and it spurts out of the artery.

I am by no means an expert in the nursing field, but my best guess would be that the needle should be inserted in the upper lateral quadrant of the gluteal region, or in other words, answer D. I would think this particular patient cannot receive any injections near the actual incision site, so finding the best way to get close to without damaging this nerve is important.

The sciatic nerve, for those who don’t know, is the one that runs from the lower back into the leg. This often gets a lot of work and a lot of pain if not taken care of properly. Therefore, you want to avoid injuring this nerve when giving an intramuscular injection near it.

It is the case that tennis players who play intensively, whether professionals or not, have a high absolute risk of stress fracture. I am not sure that the evidence shows they are suffering actual fracture more than other sportsmen.

A recent study of elite tennis players showed that the lower extremity was more affected, but upper limb stress fractures were also often found. The most often found bone injury sites were the navicular, the metatarsals, and the pars interarticularis. The study concluded that the highest risk of fracture comes from Junior male players involved in intense tennis training .
