One study, by using body surface bony landmarks and a longitudinal reference line, has described the superior-inferior relationship between the "Extramuscular Motor Points" (equavelant to "Nerve Entry Points") of the gracilis, adductor longus, adductor brevis, and adductor magnus muscle.
The NEPs of gracilis muscle branch (GMB), adductor longus muscle branch (ALMB), and adductor brevis muscle branch (ABMB) were revealed by cutting the origin of adductor longus muscle at pubic bone and flipping the muscle distally.
The right-sided adductor brevis
abscess was also drained, intra-op, and a large bore Hemovac[R] drain was inserted.
Local anesthetics are injected into the fascia between the pectineus and adductor brevis muscles  or between the adductor longus and adductor brevis muscles [38, 39] using in-plane ultrasound guidance to block the anterior branch of the obturator nerve.
The anterior branch of the obturator nerve is located at the hyperechoic thick fascia between the adductor brevis muscle and the pectineus (arrows) or adductor longus (open triangles) muscles.
myositis following transobturator tape procedure: a case report and review of the literature.
The adductor group (adductor magnus, adductor longus, adductor brevis
, pectineus, and gracilis) is located on the medial thigh and is responsible for adducting and medially rotating the thigh.
The hip adductor muscles are generally considered to include the pectinius, adductor brevis
, adductor longus, adductor magnus and the gracilis.
Incisions were made along the origin of the adductor longus, adductor brevis, sartorius, and rectus femoris muscles to expose the underlying muscular nerve branches.
However, the imaged positions of copper wires and the anatomical observations for some nerve branches were inconsistent, such as for the adductor brevis branch (Fig.
The adductor brevis muscle was divided close to its origin, and turned laterally, protecting the anterior branch of the obturator nerve.
The adductor muscles of the medial compartment of the thigh are arranged in three layers: i) the superficial layer consisting of pectineus and adductor longus muscles, ii) the middle layer represented by the adductor brevis muscle, and iii) the deep layer formed by the obturator externus and adductor magnus muscles.
