LRC en machos adultos), con musculus adductor longus presente; dedo manual I mucho mas largo que el II (dedo II representa el 80.6-80.7 % del dedo I); pliegue tarsal interno muy evidente; con tuberculos en el borde externo del tarso, pero sin formar una hilera distintiva; crestas supraorbitales y parietales ausentes o bajas; dedos manuales libres de membranas; dedos pediales con membranas basales; juveniles sin patron de diseno dorsal de marcas redondeadas y/o vermiformes crema (Figura 3A).
These injuries--referred to as musculotendinous injuries--most often involve the adductor longus muscle, but they can also include some of the hip flexor muscles such as the iliopsoas, rectus femoris and sartorius or one of the other adductors such as the gracilis muscle.
1 = gracilis muscle branch of the obturator nerve; 2 = adductor longus muscle branch; 3 = adductor brevis muscle branch; 4 = adductor magnus muscle branch; 5 = pectineus muscle branch; 6 = femoral nerve trunk.
In recent years, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of muscle has been widely used to diagnose muscular disorders and assess their progression.[sup][8],[9],[10],[11],[12],[13] Collagen VI-related myopathies have been shown to have a distinct pattern of fatty infiltration, which is most severe fatty infiltration in the vasti muscles with relative sparing of gracilis, adductor longus (AL), and sartorius.
Differential diagnoses of right adductor longus or pectineus strains were considered, and the athlete was referred for diagnostic ultrasound to identify the structures involved.
Medial portals: The AMP was located on the anterior superior margin of the adductor longus muscle, one centimeter from its insertion on the pubic symphysis.
The Serial coronal T2 MRI, located at the level of the body of the pubis and the attachment of the adductor tendons, demonstrated an intense bright signal within the bone marrow of the body of the pubis bilaterally and the adductor longus tendon at its attachment to the body of the pubis (Figure 2).
The sartorius muscle was detached from its proximal attachment, and the femoral triangle was dissected free to reveal the femoral vessels and their branches, the pectineus, and the adductor longus muscles.
The femoral trigonus was delimitated by propedeutical methods of inspection and palpation and it was found that, in the living person, the lateral aspect of the Adductor longus muscle was easily palpated.
The adductors of the ipsilateral limb were also treated including the adductor longus, brevis, and magnus, as well as the gracilis.
Adductor longus is inserted in the middle third of linea aspera.6
The medial circumflex femoral artery traverses between the adductor magnus and the adductor longus muscles and enters the deep surface of the gracilis muscle approximately 6-10 cm inferior to the pubic tubercle [Figure 3].
(19) While adductor longus injuries are quite common in athletes, the only adductor injuries reported in ballet dancers are adductor magnus strains in conjunction with hamstring injuries.
Similar fatty infiltration distribution patterns, predominantly involving the posterior compartment of the thigh, were also reported in mitochondrial diseases [20] and limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD).[21],[22],[23] LGMD-2A showed more severe fatty infiltration in the adductor major, adductor longus, and semimembranosus, with sparing of the anterior compartment of the thigh, at the early stage of disease.[21],[22] Similarly, LGMD-2B presented with large variations in fatty infiltration between the anterior and posterior compartments of the thigh.[23] However, the edema distribution patterns between LGMD-2B and IMNM or MADD were different.
