We concluded that the adductor magnus, the semimembranosus, and the long and short heads of the biceps femoris were the most frequently involved muscles across the three phenotypes.
(19) Adductor magnus injury is a frequent differential diagnosis for hamstring strain, given the mutual attachment to the ischial tuberosity and shared presentation of pain on palpation over the ischial tuberosity insertion.
These findings were consistent with metastatic infiltration of the adductor magnus by a GIST.
Subsequently, local anesthetic is injected in the fascia between the adductor brevis and adductor magnus muscles to block the posterior branch of the obturator nerve [30, 38].
The popliteal vessels are protected by the adductor magnus unless local dissemination of the process reaches them.
The amplitudes of activation for adductor magnus muscle is 33, 35 and 34 respectively for all three cases in left leg and in the right leg are 23, 5 and 4.
The hip adductor muscles are generally considered to include the pectinius, adductor brevis, adductor longus, adductor magnus and the gracilis.
Short T1 inversion recovery sequences were used to assess the degree of edema (0-5 scale).[14] Edema and fatty infiltration scores were calculated in the gluteus maximus and thigh muscles (vastus intermedius, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, biceps femoris, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, adductor magnus, sartorius, long adductor, and gracilis).
We recorded EMG signals bilaterally from muscles approximately coincident with those targeted for stimulation in neuroprosthesis recipients: tibialis anterior, soleus, vasti, semimembranosus, gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, adductor magnus, and lower erector spinae.
