Electrodiagnostic Approach to Nerve Entrapment Syndrome of the Lower Extremity
Received: 30 May 2015   • Revised: 23 September 2015   • Accepted: 24 September 2015
Abstract
The major nerves of the lower extremities are sciatic, femoral, obturator, lateral femoral cutaneous, superior gluteal and inferior gluteal nerves. These nerves are often entrapped at areas of anatomic restriction by various causes including trauma, compression and surgical/medical procedures. A well-designed electrodiagnostic study can help us localize a nerve lesion, assess severity and evaluate for the differential diagnosis of other peripheral nerve lesions including plexopathy or radiculopathy.
Key Words: entrapment neuropathy, peroneal neuropathy, tarsal tunnel syndrome, piriformis syndrome
