Thigh frontal muscles. Computer artwork of an anterior (frontal) oblique view of two of the muscles (red) of the front of the thighs. The outer muscles are the tensor fascia latae (an example of hip abductor muscles), with the iliotibial tract (white) connecting them to the knee. The inner muscles are the sartorius muscles, the longest muscles in the body. They assist in flexing, abduction and lateral rotation of hip, as well as flexion of the knee. Both sets of muscles form part of the anterior compartment of the thigh. They attach to the hip bones of the pelvis and the bones of the knee (femur and tibia).
