Pectineal line and proximal part of linea aspera of femur.
6 of 20
What is the innervation of adductor brevis?
Obturator nerve (L2, L3, L4).
7 of 20
What are the main actions of adductor brevis?
Adducts hip joint and to some extent flexes it.
8 of 20
What is the proximal attachment of adductor magnus?
Adductor part = inferior ramus of pubis, ramus of ischium. Hamstring part = ischial tuberosity.
9 of 20
What is the distal attachment of adductor magnus?
Adductor part = gluteal tuberosity, linea aspera, medial supracondylar line. Hamstring part = adductor tubercle of femur.
10 of 20
What is the innervation of adductor magnus?
Adductor part = obturator nerve (L2, L3, L4). Hamstring part = tibial part of sciatic nerve (L4).
11 of 20
What are the main actions of adductor magnus?
Adducts hip joint. Adductor part also flexes hip joint and hamstring part extends it.

What is the proximal attachment of gracilis?
Body and inferior ramus of pubis.
13 of 20
What is the distal attachment of gracilis?
Superior part of medial surface of tibia.
14 of 20
What is the innervation of gracilis?
Obturator nerve (L2, L3).
15 of 20
What are the main actions of gracilis?
Adducts hip joint, flexes knee joint and helps medially rotate knee joint.
16 of 20
What is the proximal attachment of obturator externus?
Margins of obturator foramen and obturator membrane.
17 of 20
What is the distal attachment of obturator externus?
Trochanteric fossa of femur.

What is the innervation of obturator externus?
Obturator nerve (L3, L4).
19 of 20
What are the main actions of obturator externus?
Laterally rotates hip joint and pulls head of femur into acetabulum holding pelvis steady.
