The sensory territory of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh as determined by anatomic dissections and ultrasound-guided blocks.
The lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh arose directly from the femoral nerve in six (10 %) plexuses (Sim & Webb, 2004).
The origin of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh from the femoral nerve can affect the clinical efficacy of lumbar plexus blockade, since femoral nerve blockade in such cases is likely to produce an undesirable blockade in the area of distribution of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh (Sharrock, 1980).
Inadvertent "3-in-1 block" following injection of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh. Anesth.
The lumbar plexus receives input from L1 (variable input from T12) to L4 and produces the femoral nerve, lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, obturator nerve, as well as the iliohypogastric, ilioinguinal and genitofemoral nerves.
The dorsal roots of L2 and L3 have lesser branches, which make up the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, and greater branches, that along with the dorsal root of L4 are the origins of the femoral nerve.
It therefore produces anesthesia to the lower extremity in the distribution of the femoral nerve, the obturator nerve and the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh. If anesthesia to the lower leg or posterior thigh is needed for the procedure, sacral nerve roots block must be added, typically in the form of a sciatic nerve block.
