Adductor magnus muscle
Adductor magnus muscle - a muscle located in the medial compartment of the thigh that adducts, flexes, extends, and medially rotates the thigh at the hip joint. It originates on the ischiopubic ramus and ischial tuberosity, and inserts into the gluteal tuberosity of the femur, medial lip of the linea aspera, medial supracondylar ridge, and adductor tubercle. It is innervated by the obturator and tibial nerves and supplied by branches of the deep femoral and popliteal arteries, and the inferior gluteal and obturator arteries.
