Where is the groin?

The structure of the human body should know everyone. Consider where the groin is. This area is located below the abdominal region and is adjacent to the thigh. The inguinal area has a regular shape, resembling the shape of a right-angled triangle.

Features of the groin area

Among the layers of this area can be identified:

  • skin;
  • subcutaneous tissue;
  • fascia - muscle membrane;
  • internal muscles: transverse and oblique;
  • preperitoneal tissue;
  • peritoneum.

The inguinal region is characterized by significant development of sebaceous and sweat glands. The layer of subcutaneous fat is differently expressed in women and men. The thickness of this layer becomes larger directly at the inguinal ring. Inside the subcutaneous tissue are the following arteries:

  • superficial epigastric;
  • superficial surrounding ileal.groin

Nerves passing in fiber, belong to the final branches. Muscle fibers lie parallel to the inguinal ligament - a fibrous band that covers the space in front of the pelvis. Women have more developed oblique muscles than men.

Also in this area is the inguinal canal, in which:

  • in men, there is a spermatic cord;
  • women have a round ligament of the uterus.

The inguinal canal is directed toward the center of this area and ends at the outlet, which is also called the surface ring. The following are the walls of the inguinal canal:

  • upper, consisting of the fibers of the abdominal muscles;
  • bottom, having the form of a shallow gutter;
  • the front, formed by the external and internal oblique muscles;
  • posterior, formed by a thickened fascia.

The approximate length of the abdominal canal in an adult is about 4 cm, in children it is much shorter.

Now you know where the inguinal canal is, and what are the features of its structure.
