In steps 9 to 12, the structures of the medial (adductor) compartment of the thigh will be studied. cut the adductor longus muscle about 5 cm inferior to its origin from the pubic bone and reflect the adductor longus muscle distally . Next, cut the pectineus muscle near its origin and reflect the pectineus muscle [held by the forceps; the adductor longus muscle is held by the retractor] distally.
Now, identify the adductor brevis muscle [its superior and inferior borders are indicated by the two probes].
