Ultrasound guided injection of Adductor longus and Pectineus

How to insert a needle into the proximal part of Adductor longus and Pectineus with accuracy and safety

MSK ultrasound guidance guarantees accuracy and safety in the insertion of a needle at the proximal part of Adductor longus (AL) and Pectineus (P) in a cadaver model. When performing an injection at that area, due to proximity of the neurovascular bundle and the anatomical contiguity of both muscles, ultrasound guidance becomes a must.

The management of inguinal pain is a challenge, in which myofascial trigger points of AL and P can be responsible and frequently misdiagnosed as a chronic pain pelvic syndrome (CPPS). The ultrasound guided injection technique may play a role to illuminate the diagnosis and treatment of inguinal pain.
