Function What's the purpose of the inguinal ligament? The inguinal ligament has several important jobs: Anchor the oblique muscles, abdomen and pelvis. Provide the hips with flexibility. Support the soft tissues in the groin area. Support nerves and blood vessels as they pass through the groin to the legs. Anatomy Where is the inguinal ligament?. The inguinal ligament is the thick distal border of the aponeurosis of external abdominal oblique that stretches between the anterior superior iliac spine and the pubic tubercle. Its medial half is curled in on itself, forming the gutter-like 'floor' of the inguinal canal (sometimes referred to surgically as the 'shelving edge'). The ligament serves to contain soft tissues as they course anteriorly from the trunk to the lower extremity. This structure demarcates the superior border of the femoral triangle.
