Introduction: Classically the adductor canal is made from the fascial contributions from sartorius, adductor longus, adductor magnus and vastus medialis muscles. The contents of the adductor canal include femoral artery, femoral vein, and saphenous nerve. While the femoral artery and vein continue posteriorly through the adductor hiatus, the saphenous nerve travels all the way through the adductor canal and exits the inferior opening of the adductor canal. Methods: During routine dissection… Expand

This case series suggests that amniotic and umbilical cord particulate may be a viable alternative to reduce pain in patients with neuropathic pain. Expand


The saphenous nerve: an external method for identifying its exit from the adductor canal.
This investigation analyzes the course of the saphenous nerve in 24 lower extremities and offers a standardized measuring system for externally pinpointing the nerve's exit from the canal. Expand
Adductor canal compression syndrome.
Since this syndrome occurs in younger men in whom acute arterial occlusion can lead to limb loss, recognition of the presence of apparent ischemic symptoms after exercise in an otherwise healthy young man is important. Expand
Adductor canal outlet syndrome.
It was confirmed by anatomic dissection that the intrinsic mechanical trauma occurred at the point where the femoral artery crosses the adductor magnus tendon, which has been previously implicated as a cause of atherosclerotic stenosis and thrombosis. Expand
The connective tissue of the adductor canal – a morphological study in fetal and adult specimens
Modifications induced by aging on the connective tissue and to correlate them to the proposed pathophysiological mechanism for adductor canal syndrome may represent necessary conditions for this syndrome to develop. Expand
Saphenous nerve entrapment at the adductor canal
A retrospective study of 30 patients who met the clinical criteria for saphenous nerve entrapment at the adductor canal is described, finding that eighty percent of patients had improved after a series of blocks and the possible etiology was unknown. Expand
Saphenous neuritis: a poorly understood cause of medial knee pain.
Saphenous neuritis is a painful condition caused by either irritation or compression at the adductor canal or elsewhere along the course of the saphenous nerve that can have an indolent and protracted course. Expand
Anatomy and potential clinical significance of the vastoadductor membrane
The authors would hypothesize that due to the interconnection between the adductor magnus and vastus medialis by the vastoadductor membrane that a potential synergy exists between the functions of these two muscles. Expand
Conservative management of a saphenous nerve entrapment in a female ultra-marathon runner.
In-office Active Release Technique (®) combined with an at-home rehabilitative exercise program relieved the patient's subjective pain and paresthesia with two treatments provided over a one week period of time. Expand
Neurilemoma of the saphenous nerve presenting as pain in the knee. A case report.
The case of a woman who had pain in the knee from a non-palpable neurilemoma along the saphenous nerve in Hunter's canal with referred pain as its initial symptom is reported. Expand
Saphenous nerve entrapment simulating vascular disorder.
It is concluded that entrapment of the saphenous nerve should be considered when other known syndromes are unable to explain the symptomatology. Expand
