Dissection of anterior and medial aspects of thigh
Nerve supply to adductor longus muscle, anterior view
The adductor longus has been reflected medially and dissected to reveal branches of the obturator nerve entering the posterior aspect of the muscle belly.
1 . Pectineus muscle
2 . Pubic tubercle
3 . Anterior branch of obturator nerve (upper pointer, branches to gracilis muscle; lower pointer, branches to adductor longus muscle)
4 . Adductor brevis muscle
5 . Adductor longus muscle (reflected medially)
6 . Gracilis muscle
7 . Deep femoral artery (muscular branch)
8 . Adductor magnus muscle
9 . Femoral artery
10 . Femoral nerve
11 . Iliacus muscle
12 . Medial femoral circumflex artery
13 . Lateral femoral circumflex artery
14 . Tensor fasciae latae muscle
