Techniques in Orthopaedics: March 2021 - Volume 36 - Issue 1 - p 77-81 doi: 10.1097/BTO.0000000000000393 Buy Metrics Abstract Groin pain is one of the most common and challenging diagnoses for a sports medicine physician. Up to 64% of groin injuries involve the adductor tendons, which can be very difficult to treat with or without surgical intervention. The purpose of this article is to report the 2-year outcomes of a patient that presented with an acute proximal adductor tendon injury and to describe a novel surgical approach. This is a case of a 36-year-old elite athlete that presented with an acute adductor longus tear. The patient was treated with surgical repair using a parainguinal approach and bioabsorbable suture anchors into the adductor longus anatomic footprint. The patient had a full return to sport at 8 weeks postoperatively. At 2 years the patient was symptom free and still participating in the same elite level of sport. Adductor repair using a parainguinal approach and bioabsorbable suture anchors is a viable surgical option for patients in the acute setting. Copyright © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
