AbstractThe lumbar plexus is a network of nerves which comprises of the ventral primary rami of the first, second, third and fourth lumbar spinal nerves (L1 - L4).Awareness of the possibility of encountering multiple variations may prevent post-operative complications. This would also be useful information for Anatomists, Anaesthesiologists, Gynaecologists, Orthopedicians and Surgeons.
Aim-: The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and variation in the formation of femoral nerve.
Material and method-: The study was carried out on a total of 60 lumbar plexuses taken from 30 cadavers in the department of anatomy index medical college (MP), and govt medical college, doda (J&K). For the purpose of providing a more transparent depiction of the observed variation, each item has been photographed with a digital camera.
Result-: The normal origin of the FN is from the dorsal divisions of the L2, L3, and L4 roots. Atypical branching pattern of femorsl nerve was found in 5 out of 60 (8.33%) plexuses.
Conclusion-: This study found distinctions that could aid anatomists, anaesthetists, gynaecologists, orthopaedicians, and surgeons perform nerve blocks, abdomino-pelvic surgeries, and caesarean sections. These changes can also assist clinicians treat psoas major muscular abscess, groin pain syndrome, testicular pain, psoas muscle infarct (specifically in diabetics), and other conditions that might cause lumbar plexopathies.
