Difference between Thigh and Tibia

Thigh vs. Tibia

In human anatomy, the thigh is the area between the hip (pelvis) and the knee. The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.

Similarities between Thigh and Tibia

Thigh and Tibia have 15 things in common (in Unionpedia): Biceps femoris muscle, Bone, Diaphysis, Femur, Gracilis muscle, Hinge joint, Knee, Long bone, Lower extremity of femur, Patella, Quadriceps femoris muscle, Sartorius muscle, Semimembranosus muscle, Semitendinosus muscle, Tibia.

Biceps femoris muscle

The biceps femoris is a muscle of the thigh located to the posterior, or back.

Diaphysis

The diaphysis is the main or midsection (shaft) of a long bone.

Femur

The femur (pl. femurs or femora) or thigh bone, is the most proximal (closest to the hip joint) bone of the leg in tetrapod vertebrates capable of walking or jumping, such as most land mammals, birds, many reptiles including lizards, and amphibians such as frogs.

Gracilis muscle

The gracilis muscle (Latin for "slender") is the most superficial muscle on the medial side of the thigh.

Hinge joint

A hinge joint (ginglymus) is a bone joint in which the articular surfaces are molded to each other in such a manner as to permit motion only in one plane.

Knee

The knee joins the thigh with the leg and consists of two joints: one between the femur and tibia (tibiofemoral joint), and one between the femur and patella (patellofemoral joint).

Long bone

The long bones are those that are longer than they are wide.

Lower extremity of femur

The lower extremity of femur (or distal extremity) is the lower end of the thigh bone in human and other animals, closer to the knee.

Patella

The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a thick, circular-triangular bone which articulates with the femur (thigh bone) and covers and protects the anterior articular surface of the knee joint.

Quadriceps femoris muscle

The quadriceps femoris (also called the quadriceps extensor, quadriceps or quads), is a large muscle group that includes the four prevailing muscles on the front of the thigh.

Semimembranosus muscle

The semimembranosus is the most medial of the three hamstring muscles.

Tibia

The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.
