US of the lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve: normal findings in a cadaver and in volunteers.
It can also be transferred as a sensate flap by including lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve proximally with the flap.
Imaging methods such as direct radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography (USG), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and MRI neurography can be used. The MRI neurography for sciatic, femoral, obturator, lateral femoral cutaneous
, genitofemoral, ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, pudendal, and posterior femoral cutaneous nerves are available to evaluate the common pathological conditions of large and small pelvic nerves. In addition, cystoscopy and laparoscopy are among the diagnostic methods used in patients with CPP.[20,21] A case diagnosed by USG and presented with anterior abdominal wall endometriosis is shown in Figure 2.
The nerves studied included Sensory nerves (Femoral, Obturator, Lateral femoral cutaneous
, Tibial, Superficial peroneal, Deep peroneal, & Posterior femoral cutaneous nerves) and motor nerves (Femoral, Obturator, Tibial, Common peroneal nerves).
Meralgia paresthetica, a painful mononeuropathy of the lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve (LFCN), can result from injury, compression or mechanical irritation of the latter.
This etiology of injury would be similar to lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve palsies that have been known to occasionally result from stretch injuries during hip arthroplasty positioning .
The lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve was identified beneath the fascia and was gently retracted medially.
Perineural spread was assessed for the anterior rami of spinal nerves L2-S1, the femoral, obturator, and lateral femoral cutaneous
nerves as well as the lumbosacral trunk.
Lateral femoral cutaneous
neuralgia: an anatomical insight.
(40) Due to its anatomical relation to the surgical interval, the lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve is at risk during the direct anterior approach.
Neurologists warn that belts can compress the lateral femoral cutaneous
nerve that runs from the abdomen to the outer thigh.
