Adductor Longus Muscle Anatomy

Content List

The adductor longus is a large, fan-shaped muscle and is the most anteriorly placed of the adductor group of the medial compartment of the thigh.

The medial compartment of the thigh consists of the adductor group which consists of the adductor longus, adductor brevis, adductor magnus, gracilis, and obturator externus.

Adductor Longus Muscle Anatomy

The triangular long adductor arises by a strong tendon from the anterior aspect of the body of the pubis, just inferior to the pubic tubercle (apex of triangle), and expands to attach to the linea aspera of the femur (base of triangle), in so doing, it covers the anterior aspects of the adductor brevis and the middle of the adductor magnus.
