Anatomy Guidelines for DPT First Year

University of Health Sciences (UHS)

These guidelines are also important for Other Students like MBBS, BDS, and other university Students.

Upper Limb

Anatomy ( upper limb )
BOOK: From BD Chaurasia ..guidelines

Chapter 02.

  • Bones are not mainly part of theory paper
  • Prepare them later for viva.
  • .*do clinincals*but if necessary then prepare small bones for seq ,like clavicle

Chapter  03

  • Breast( very important Q)..whole topic
  • Do each muscle table and individual muscles given
  • Lymph nodes v.imp

Chapter 04

  • Boundaries, contents of axilla
  • Axillary artery and it’s branches (relation not that important)
  • Axillary lymph nodes most imp
  • Spinal nerve formation(last year Q)
  • Brachial plexus (draw and label…very imp*) + clinicals scenerios imp .

Chapter  05

  • Muscle tables.
  • Triangle of auscultation
  • Lumber triangle of Petit

Chapter 06

  • Muscle tables + individual muscles given
  • Rotator cuff
  • Subacromial bursa
  • Intermuscular spaces(diagram*)
  • Axillary nerve
  • Anastomosis(diagram*)

Chapter 07

  • Cutaneous supply and dermatomes diagrams(v.imp
  • Lymph nodes(imp for viva ,seq,)

Chapter  08

  • Compartments
  • Muscle tables+ individual muscles .nerve supply remember
  • Musculocutaneous nerve
  • brachial artery(v.v.imp)
  • Anastomosis around elbow
  • Cubital fossa** very important topic it’s content
  • Radial nerve (imp

Chapter 09

  • Muscle tables*
  • Flexor retinaculum
  • Palmer aponeurosis
  • Fibrous flexor sheathes
  • Superficial and deep Palmer arches* palmaris aponeurosis imp diagram
  • Quadrangular space
  • Spaces of hand
  • Anatomical snuff box_ boundaries and contents
    ( About Arteries and nerves ..explained below)

Chapter 10

  • Table 10.1
  • Major joints
  • Analysis of overhead movement of shoulder*
  • Carrying Angle in female and male (viva question most fav)

Important Note

(You must know major joint and important bursa, ligaments ,range of motion and important features there)
Okay..guys above I try to cover each and every important thing in chapters..but there are some points to be noted

✓surface landmarks and fascias ..give them a single read it’s okay
✓do,NT leave any’s origin insertion nerve supply and action
BD has very extensive tables …Snell have easy tables…you can follow Snell for tables…and not
necessary to cramp each word…just one to two major origin / insertion are also enough
✓clinical are very boxes..don’t leave any
✓for arteries and nerves..they are very lengthy..
√make your notes ,try to make a flow chart of a nerve ,all along it’s course from arm to hand (median,ulnar and radial

You must learn their branches names and you aware of general course of each of them so if asked you can write in your own words
But do learn the major arteries and nerves(I haven’t mentioned all chapter wise)
✓use atlas for better visual concept and you can use youtube ,grays and any book for better visual pictures


Lower Limb

Important topics of anatomy


Nothing is specifically important. In anatomy every single and
small thing is important, some for theory, some for viva and some for
ospe, So you have to learn each and every thing about anatomy. Here
some important points highlighted according to my experience in
proff , sendups and tests.

General Guideline:

All Muscle table ( origin, insertion, nerve supply and actions )
All Nerves from lower and upper limb from every region are very
important with their branches, course and clinical. Don’t skip any
single nerve.
All Arteries with course and branches

Chapter no 2:

  • Bones structure for ospe and viva + clinical

Chapter no 3:

  • Great saphenous vein (proff),
  • Inguinal lymph nodes,
  • femoral ring and triangle (proff),
  • Adductor canal,
  • All nerves and arteries in this chapter.

Chapter no 4:

  • Obturator Nerve & Artery with clinical

Chapter no 5:

  • Sciatic nerve (proff),
  • All gluteal nerves + clinical
  • What structures are deep to gluteal Maximus and minimus? name them.
  • All muscles,
  • Trochanter & cruciate anastomoses (proff),
  • All nerves in this chapter.

Chapter no 6:

  • Popliteal fossa (proff)
  • Anastomoses around knee joint (proff)
  • All nerves in this chapter

Chapter no 7:

  • Sciatic Nerve imp
  • All arteries with course and branches
  • Anastomoses on back of thigh (proff)

Chapter no 8:

  • Superior & Inferior extensor retinaculum (sendup)
  • Dorsalis pedis artery (proff)
  • All muscles, nerves and arteries

Chapter no 9:

  • Flexor Retinaculum (sendup)
  • Tibial nerve (proff)

Chapter no 10:

  • Planter aponeurosis (proff)
  • Deep transverse metatarsal ligaments (proff)
  • Layers of foot (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th) just names
  • Nerves in this chapters
  • Plantar Arch (sendup)

Chapter no 11:
