The long adductor muscle is a flat muscle with a triangular shape.
It originates from the anterior aspect of the superior branch of the pubis and is inserted on the middle third of the rough line of the femur.
Superficially it is covered by the femoral fascia and with its action it externally adducts and rotates (extraloting) the thigh, it can also intervene in the thigh flexion on the pelvis.
It is the most superficial and anterior of the adductor muscles of the thigh.
It is innervated by the anterior branch of the obturator nerve of the lumbar plexus (L2-L4)
