Meralgia paraesthetica (MP) is a condition originally described by Bernhardt in 1878 and was eventually named by Roth in 1895. It is caused by compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) resulting in varying types of discomfort. Severity of the symptoms can range from mildly uncomfortable to painfully disabling. In this article we discuss 2 patients with a LFCN injury occurring as a result of laparoscopic ventral rectopexy (LVR). The first patient is a 46-year-old female who reported pain and dysesthesia in the left groin and the anterolateral thigh, 2 days post LCR...

A 44-year-old female with paraesthesia and pain on the left anterolateral thigh who had been diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy by electromyography and muscle biopsy is presented. Neurological examination revealed atrophy of the proximal muscles of both shoulders, plus pseudo hypertrophy of both calves. Electromyography exhibited a myopathic pattern. Musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging demonstrated a fusiform nerve swelling below the inguinal ligament suggesting lateral femoral cutaneous nerve compression, consistent with meralgia paraesthetica...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of ultrasound (US)-guided injections around the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) at different levels in meralgia paraesthetica (MP) patients. METHODS: The study was approved by the university ethics committee and informed oral and written consent were obtained from all patients. Between June 2008 and August 2013, 20 patients with symptoms of MP, including nine men (mean age, 61.33 years) and 11 women (mean age 61.18 years), were treated with US-guided injection of steroids along the LFCN at three different levels in a mean of 2...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of the anterior mini-open approach of the hip for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) at one year post-surgery by use of questionnaires, functional capacity tests and biomechanical studies. DESIGN: This is a case series prospective study. A total of 14 patients diagnosed of FAI were included. Patients were classified according to Tönnis scale. Hip joint mobility, Faber distance, pain levels (assessed on a visual analogic scale [VAS]), 6-minute walking test (6MWT), Timed up & go test (TUGT), Stairs climbing test, Lequesne functional index, and gait analysis were assessed prior to and 12 months after surgery...

Altogether, nerve entrapment syndromes have a very high incidence. Neurological deficits attributable to a focal peripheral nerve lesion lead to the clinical diagnosis. Frequently, pain is the dominant symptom but is often not confined to the nerve supply area. Electroneurography, electromyography, and more recently also neurosonography are the most important diagnostic tools. In most patients surgical therapy is necessary, which should be carried out in a timely manner. The entrapment syndromes discussed are suprascapular nerve entrapment, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, meralgia paraesthetica, thoracic outlet syndrome and anterior interosseous nerve syndrome...

OBJECTIVE: Neuropathic pain during pregnancy is a common condition due to the physical changes and compression around pregnancy and childbirth that make pregnant women more prone to develop several medical conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, meralgia paraesthetica and other nerve entrapment syndromes. Most of the treatments usually performed to counteract neuropathic pain are contraindicated in pregnancy so that, the management of these highly invalidating conditions remains an issue in the clinical practice...

Meralgia Paraesthetica (MP) is a rare condition, in which the patient experiences a burning sensation along the distribution of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, due to entrapment neuropathy at the lateral end of the inguinal ligament as it exits the pelvis. There are several causes of this condition including laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty. Diagnosed clinically, intervention is indicated for failed conservative measures. We herewith report a patient with MP and symptomatic cholelithiasis, treated for both laparoscopically...

OBJECTIVE: We report here a rare case of anterior superior iliac spine avulsion fracture that presented initially as meralgia paraesthetica. CASE REPORT: A 14-year-old male sprinter presented with anterior superior iliac spine avulsion fracture, which was not observed on initial plain radiograph of the hip, but was diagnosed by ultrasound. Both clinical presentations and electrophysiological studies indicated meralgia paraesthetica. The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of the thigh was probably compressed by an inguinal haematoma resulting from sartorius muscle strain, which was detected on musculoskeletal ultrasound...

BACKGROUND: Meralgia paraesthetica is a fairly common condition resulting from entrapment of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. I have found that acupuncture produces a rapid improvement, sometimes effecting a cure, after only one or two treatments. I therefore invited referrals in order to collect a case series. METHODS: A series of 10 patients, which included two who had refused surgery, but excluded those with significant lumbar spine problems, were treated...

BACKGROUND: Meralgia paraesthetica is a clinical syndrome for which a number of treatments are in common use, including conservative measures, injection of corticosteroid with local anaesthetic and surgery. We aimed to examine the evidence for the relative efficacy of these interventions. This review was first published in 2008. Searches were updated in 2010 and 2012. OBJECTIVES: To assess the relative efficacy of commonly used treatments for meralgia paraesthetica...

A 53-year-old woman with a history of end-stage renal disease on peritoneal dialysis (PD) presented with a 3-month history of intermittent numbness and paraesthesia over the anterior aspect of the right thigh. The patient noticed the pain was worse on walking and related to dialysis sessions. An examination revealed no neurovascular abnormalities or abdominal masses. However, there was subjective paraesthesia in the distribution of the right lateral cutaneous nerve. Subsequent nerve conduction studies revealed the cause of the patient's symptoms...

INTRODUCTION: Meralgia paraesthetica is a pathology that is frequently seen in visits to extra-hospital neurology services. Nevertheless, the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of this condition remain somewhat unclear. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted involving 140 patients. Data were collected concerning demographic aspects, clinical picture, diagnostic study, aetiology, treatment and progression. RESULTS: There was a predominance of males, with a mean age of 54 years...

OBJECTIVE: This work aims to determine reliability and diagnostic sensitivity of sensory nerve-conduction study and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) for the assessment of meralgia paraesthetica (MP). METHODS: Thirty-two patients with unilateral MP have been evaluated and compared to 30 control subjects. Sensory nerve-conduction study and SEPs (segmental and dermatomal) of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve were used. RESULTS: Sensory nerve action potential (SNAP) was unobtainable in nine patients (28...

The reconstruction of large maxillofacial defects generally requires harvesting bone from extra-oral sites. The main source of autogenous bone is the iliac crest. This donor site is used to obtain bone for augmentation in orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, and oral and maxillofacial surgery, where the main indications are secondary and tertiary osteoplasty in patients with cleft-lip and palate, reconstruction of bony defects after operations for tumours, and augmentation of severe atrophy of the alveolar crest in preprosthetic surgery...
