Formation of Pelvic Somatic Nerves: An Advanced Study

4 October 2021
In the formation of nerves, variations are very common. They might be either pre- or post-fixed. The presence of neural roots with varying thicknesses or the absence of neural roots is also common. The main objective of the study was to observe the prefixed and postfixed pelvic nerves and their clinical sigbificance. Except for the obturator nerve, the pelvic nerves run along the posterior pelvic wall. The obturator nerve is located on the lateral side of the pelvic wall. Extraperitoneally, against the posterolateral walls of the pelvis, are located the pelvic nerves. The Lateral Femoral Cutaneous nerve, Femoral nerve, Genitofemoral nerve, Obturator nerve, and the Lumbosacral trunk are all somatic nerves in the pelvis. Variations in the level of these nerves' roots are relatively common, and these variations are significant for surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons during various surgeries. The formation and level of division of parietal pelvic nerves showed a variety of variances, which are detailed in the study.
- Femoral nerve
- genitofemoral nerve
- obturator nerve
- lumbosacral trunk
