The medial circumflex femoral artery traverses between the adductor magnus and the adductor longus muscles and enters the deep surface of the gracilis muscle approximately 6-10 cm inferior to the pubic tubercle [Figure 3].
Descending and transverse branches of the lateral circumflex femoral artery are located below the greater trochanter as well and therefore cannot be damaged with the needle.
The structures with a high risk of being injured were the LFCN, located 1.42 [+ or -] 0.85 cm medial to the portal, the ascending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery (LCFA), located 5.44 [+ or -] 1.13 cm medial to the portal, and the femoral nerve 4.47 [+ or -] 1.03 cm medial to the portal (Table I).
