The internervous plane in the Smith-Petersen anterior hip approach is made by the femoral nerve and superior gluteal nerve.
The anterior Smith-Petersen hip approach uses the superficial internervous plane between the sartorius (femoral nerve) and the tensor fascia latae (superior gluteal nerve). The deep plane for access to the hip joint capsule uses the same internervous plane but is between the rectus femoris (femoral nerve) and the gluteus medius (superior gluteal nerve). In this approach to the hip, one must be conscious to avoid damaging the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.
Illustration A and B show the superficial and deep internervous plane.

The ascending branch of the lateral femoral circumflex artery is at risk with which of the following surgical approaches?
The ascending branch of the lateral femoral circumflex artery is at risk during the Smith-Petersen approach to the hip. In this approach, an internervous interval between the femoral nerve (sartorius, superficial; rectus femoris, deep) and superior gluteal nerve (tensor fascia latae, superficial; gluteus medius, deep) is utilized.
The ascending branch of the lateral femoral circumflex artery runs proximally in the internervous plane between the two deep muscles.
