Data from an electrophysiological analysis ofthe posterior cutaneous femoral nerve

The skin of the perineum as well as the posterior side of the
thigh and leg are both inervated by the posterior cutaneous
femoral nerve. We examined 116 limbs from 48 healthy
participants using the Dumitru et al. [1] approach to evaluate
this nerve. The median results for the posterior cutaneous
femoral nerve were 2.0 msec (0.5) for onset latency, 7.0 V (2.1)
for amplitude, and 52 m/s (4) for nerve conduction velocity.
