The nerve supply to the vulva includes branches of the ilioinguinal nerve (L1), the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve (Li-L2), the perineal branch of the femoral cutaneous nerve (L2-L3), and the perineal nerve (one of the branches of the pudendal nerve).
Inguinal nerves include the ilioinguinal nerve, the iliohypogastric nerve and the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve. Elective division or resection of the ilioinguinal nerve has been proposed by many authors to reduce the risk of postoperative pain, which is one of the most significant complications after open inguinal hernia repair.
The lateral femoral cutaneous nerves were harvested with the flaps, and neurorrhaphy to the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve was performed bilaterally.
Within this compartment, the lumber plexus, the ventral ramus of the sacral plexus, iliohypogastric nerve, ilioinguinal nerve, genitofemoral nerve, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, femoral nerve, obturator nerve, and parts of the sciatic nerve pass through7.
