The lateral femoral cutaneous nerves were harvested with the flaps, and neurorrhaphy to the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve was performed bilaterally.
More specifically, anterior divisions of L2-L4 comprise the obturator nerve, which then innervates the medial aspects of the thigh; whereas the posterior divisions give rise to the femoral nerve (L2-L4) and the lateral femoral cutaneous nerves (L2-L3), which supply the anterior and lateral parts of the thigh, respectively.
Twelve hours later the patient demonstrated complete femoral, obturator and sciatic nerve blockade (including motor block) (the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve was not involved).
