Anatomic concerns also include branches from the femoral innervated muscles for whom trajectories are not clear, relative variability in innervation patterns to the anterior capsule in the presence of an accessory obturator nerve, accessory femoral nerve or superior gluteal nerve branches, the possibility of articular branches that start more inferiorly along the course of the femoral nerve and run with vessels, and a scenario where one common trunk supplies the joint, vessels, and muscles.
2010) Effects of coil characteristics for femoral nerve magnetic stimulation.
Unfortunately, post-operative pain often persists after 24-48 hours, so a continuous femoral nerve block (CFNB) was introduced.
Additionally, since brief ES applied to an injured femoral nerve has been shown to accelerate axonal growth across the injury site [11], an additional goal of the current study was to determine whether daily stimulation is necessary or whether a smaller number of sessions would be sufficient to enhance regeneration and recovery in the facial nerve injury model.
One may see decreased amplitude, as well as conduction velocity (not performed on the femoral nerve in this case).

The court found that the record left no room for doubt that the patient's femoral nerve had been damaged and that the injury manifested itself in the form of pain.
Different PNBs have been investigated for use in arthroplasty patients, with lumbar plexus block (LPB) and femoral nerve block (FNB) being most common.
Pacira) announced the findings from the completed first part of its Phase 2/3 clinical trial for the assessment of the use and administration of Exparel (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) as a single-dose injection femoral nerve block for total knee arthroplasty surgery (TKA).
This model-driven approach to designing selective electrodes for the femoral nerve has been verified intra-operatively [23], and the resulting devices have been approved for human feasibility trials [24].
