Sports hernia repair with adductor tenotomy

Hernia : the journal of hernias and abdominal wall surgery | 9 Aug 2016

JN Harr and F Brody
Abstract
Sports hernias, or athletic pubalgia, is common in athletes, and primarily involves injury to the fascia, muscles, and tendons of the inguinal region near their insertion onto the pubic bone. However, management varies widely, and rectus and adductor tenotomies have not been adequately described. The purpose of this manuscript is to demonstrate a suture repair and a rectus and adductor longus tenotomy technique for sports hernias.
