Femoral nerve entrapment

A Azuelos, L Corò, A Alexandre
Acta Neurochirurgica. Supplement 2005, 92: 61-2
We present 30 cases of femoral nerve entrapment (1999-2003, age range 35-65 yrs), in 13 patients with diagnosis of idiopathic compression and 7 patients of neurovascular conflict. The compression, in the other 10 patients, was iatrogenic: 3 patients following cardiac catheterization for balloon valvotomy, 2 patients following intra-abdominal vascular surgery and 5 patients following laparoscopic hernia treatment. Microsurgical nerve decompression, and the elimination of neurovascular conflict gave satisfactory results. The best result has been observed in neurovascular conflict cases.
