Hunter’s canal is also known as the adductor canal, which runs behind the sartorius muscle. It is located between the anterior and medial thigh compartments. The femoral artery and vein pass through the canal enroute to the space posterior to the knee, the popliteal fossa. Also found in Hunter's canal are the saphenous nerve and the nerve to vastus medialis, both branches of the femoral nerve.
