dc.description.abstractEntrapment of the anterior division of the obturator nerve is a recently described cause of medial groin pain. This anatomic study examines the extrapelvic course of the nerve and related fascia in the adductor region to provide an anatomic basis for the syndrome and to aid in surgical treatment. Twelve anatomic specimen limbs were dissected to document the extrapelvic course of the obturator nerve, the myofascial arrangement, and the vasculature. A thirteenth limb was prepared with intraarterial glycerin to examine the vessels in more detail. A distinct fascial plane was found deep to the adductor longus and pectineus overlying the anterior division of the obturator nerve. The arterial supply to the adductor muscles is related intimately to the nerve and its branches, with associated local thickening of the fascial connective tissue. The relationship between the nerve, vessels, and fascia appears sufficient to result in an entrapment syndrome. The anatomic findings from this series will help plan the surgical treatment of this condition.en
