Adductor avulsive injuries near the symphisis pubis. Academic Article uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • Avulsion injuries occurring near the symphisis pubis are related to the sites of origin of the adductor longus, adductor brevis, and gracilis muscles. Young athletes complain of pain near the symphisis which is increased by active adduction of the limb against resistance. Radiographic findings, similar to those found in infection and neoplasms, are mixed bone destruction and sclerosis on one side of the symphisis, frequently extending inferior pubic ramus.
