Abstract:
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. It is easy and repeatable to evaluate the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve. This standardisation produced results that were comparable to those in international literature.
