adductor longus


Explanation:
While we are at it, let us distinguish between the two verbs, to abduct and to adduct, in the context of muscular function.

To abduct is "to draw away (as a limb) from a position near or parallel to the median axis of the body" (Webster's Medical Dictionary).

To adduct is "to draw (as a limb) toward or past the median axis of the body; also to bring together (similar parts)" (Webster's Medical Dictionary).

Adductor longus is defined as "a powerful triangular muscle contributing to the human thigh, arising from the superior ramus of the pubis and inserted into the middle third of the linea aspera" (Webster's Medical Dictionary).

musculus adductor longus


Explanation:
"Long adductor muscle" peut aussi se traduire de cette façon, mais je préfère le latin pour la médecine.

- Muscle situé dans la région interne de la cuisse. Il s'insère en haut sur le corps du pubis, et se termine sur la partie moyenne de l'interstice de la ligne âpre. Action : adduction et rotation en dehors de la cuisse.

J'espère que ça vous aidera.
