Nerve injury in pfannenstiel

Eun Soo Kim, Hae Kyu Kim, Ji Seok Baik, Young Tae Ji
Ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric (II/IH) nerve injury is one of the most common nerve injuries following pelvic surgery, especially with the Pfannenstiel incision. We present a case of intractable groin pain, successfully treated with a continuous II/IH nerve block. A 33-year-old woman, following emergency cesarean section due to cephalopelvic disproportion, presented numbness in left inguinal area and severe pain on the labia on the second postoperative day. The pain was burning, lancinating, and exacerbated by standing or movement...

BACKGROUND: Anterior pelvic ring surgery includes a variety of plating techniques and insertion of retrograde superior pubic ramus screws. Anterior acetabular surgery also includes fixation through an ilioinguinal or Stoppa approach. These exposures risk injury to the spermatic cord and accompanying genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve. The primary aim of this study was to identify the distance between the midline and the spermatic cords in adult male cadaveric specimens. The secondary aim was to determine spermatic cord diameters and measure the distance between the spermatic cord and implant during instrumentation of a retrograde superior pubic ramus medullary screw...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal surgery in the obese can be a major challenge in the perioperative period. Peripheral neuropathy is an uncommon but well-described complication after abdominal surgery. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to evaluate the incidence of postoperative peripheral neuropathy after colorectal surgery and to identify its risk factors. DESIGN: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database of consecutive patients undergoing colorectal operations was performed...

OBJECTIVES: To determine what anatomic structures are at risk after the application of a subcutaneous anterior pelvic internal fixator (APIF), from an incision over the anterior iliac crest to an incision centered over the pubic symphysis (Pfannenstiel). METHODS: A laboratory investigation was performed using 5 fresh, frozen, nonpreserved cadaveric specimens (3 male specimens, 2 female specimens). Dissections were carried out to identify the relationships and proximity between the fixator screw constructs and various anatomic structures, including the (1) lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN), (2) ilioinguinal nerve (IIN), (3) iliohypogastric nerve (IHN), (4) femoral nerve, (5) femoral artery, (6) femoral vein, (7) genitofemoral nerve; and (8) spermatic cord or round ligament...

STUDY AIM: To identify danger areas in surgical incisions (appendectomy, inguinal and Pfannenstiel incisions) by mapping the course of ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The courses of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves from 37 unembalmed adult cadavers were mapped from their lateral emergence on the internal obliquus nerve to their midline termination in reference to anatomic landmarks (anterior superior iliac spine, midline, upper border of the pubic symphysis)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate factors associated with the development of vocal fold immobility in patients surviving burn intensive care. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: A retrospective review of patients referred to Department of Speech Pathology by the Burn Intensive Care Unit between June 2002 and November 2004. Patients underwent videostroboscopic examination, and associations of vocal fold immobility with factors related to patient management were examined by using logistic regression...

The low transverse abdominal incision, described by Pfannenstiel, is, mostly because of its decent scar, the incision of choice for most gynaecological operations. Making this incision, the ilioinguinal nerve and the iliohypogastric nerve can be involved. In many cases this causes a lasting numbness in the region around the scar. Some patients have a lasting, radiating, invalidating pain, which can be relieved surgically.
