The abdomen (less formally called the belly, stomach, tummy or midriff) constitutes the part of the body between the thorax (chest) and pelvis, in humans and in other vertebrates.
The adductor brevis is a muscle in the thigh situated immediately deep to the pectineus and adductor longus.
In the human body, the adductor longus is a skeletal muscle located in the thigh.
The adductor magnus is a large triangular muscle, situated on the medial side of the thigh.
The adductor muscles of the hip are a group of muscles mostly used for bringing the thighs together (called adduction).

The inguinal canals are the two passages in the anterior abdominal wall which in males convey the spermatic cords and in females the round ligament of uterus.
The inguinal ligament (Poupart's ligament or groin ligament) is a band running from the pubic tubercle to the anterior superior iliac spine.
Inguinal lymph nodes are the lymph nodes in the inguinal region (groin).
Injury, also known as physical trauma, is damage to the body caused by external force.
The loins (or: lumbus) are the sides between the lower ribs and pelvis, and the lower part of the back.
The medial compartment of thigh is one of the fascial compartments of the thigh and contains the hip adductor muscles and the gracilis muscle.
The obturator nerve in human anatomy arises from the ventral divisions of the second, third, and fourth lumbar nerves in the lumbar plexus; the branch from the third is the largest, while that from the second is often very small.
The pectineus muscle (from the Latin word pecten, meaning comb) is a flat, quadrangular muscle, situated at the anterior (front) part of the upper and medial (inner) aspect of the thigh.
