Inguinal Ligament

The inguinal ligament supports the region around the groin (between the abdomen and the thigh), preventing an inguinal hernia, or protrusion of part of the intestine into the muscles of the groin. Broadly, a ligament is a tough band of white, fibrous, rather elastic tissue. Ligaments support many internal organs; including the uterus, the bladder, the liver, and the diaphragm.
