Other Terms: Membrana obturatoria, Membrane obturatrice
The obturator membrane is the strong fibrous membrane that spans across the obturator foramen. It is perforated superiorly by the obturator canal, which transmits the obturator vessels and nerves into the medial compartment of the thigh. It also provides attachment surface for the internal and external obturator muscles.
