• dysfunction
  • A person who loses sensation or movement in the leg may be suffering from Femoral nerve dysfunction. (picsearch.com)
  • What are the symptoms of femoral nerve dysfunction? (reference.com)
  • Femoral nerve dysfunction is sometimes caused by compression due to nearby abnormal blood vessels or tumors, a direct injury or prolonged pressure that leads to decreased blood flow, notes MedlinePlus. (reference.com)
  • Major weight gain or loss, heavy or constricting waist belts and widespread nerve damage from other causes are also risk factors that may result in femoral nerve dysfunction. (reference.com)
  • quadriceps muscle
  • described an innovative approach known as dynamic intraoperative assessment utilizing a "stimulating" femoral catheter to directly activate the quadriceps muscle to assess patellar tracking and accomplish proper placement for the tibial tubercle osteotomy. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • acetabulum
  • A total hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) consists of replacing both the acetabulum and the femoral head while hemiarthroplasty generally only replaces the femoral head. (wikipedia.org)
  • The small femoral head (7⁄8 in (22.2 mm)) was chosen for Charnley's belief that it would have lower friction against the acetabular component and thus wear out the acetabulum more slowly. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ball at the top of the thighbone which is known as the femoral head is not stable within the socket (which is also known as the acetabulum). (wikipedia.org)
  • Posterior dislocation is the most prevalent, in which the femoral head lies posterior and superior to the acetabulum. (wikipedia.org)
  • acetabular
  • Charnley's design consisted of three parts: stainless steel one-piece femoral stem and head polyethylene (originally Teflon), acetabular component, both of which were fixed to the bone using PMMA (acrylic) bone cement The replacement joint, which was known as the Low Friction Arthroplasty, was lubricated with synovial fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Initial hip designs were made of a one-piece femoral component and a one-piece acetabular component. (wikipedia.org)
  • catheter
  • Indwelling lines are a known infection risk and indwelling lines in the femoral region are known to be associated with a high incidence of catheter colonization. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • We describe the effects of tourniquet inflation and catheter placement on intraoperative femoral nerve stimulation for assessment of patel-lar tracking. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • 1 These two publications made it evident that the tourniquet plays a pivotal role in femoral nerve stimulation, not only regarding the duration of tourniquet inflation but also in the accurate placement of the catheter for initial stimulation. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • fascia lata
  • One long perineal branch, inferior pudendal (long scrotal nerve), curves forward below and in front of the ischial tuberosity, pierces the fascia lata, and runs forward beneath the superficial fascia of the perineum to the skin of the scrotum in the male, and of the labium majus in the female. (wikipedia.org)
  • efficacy
  • Currently,systematic evidence is sparse related to the comparative efficacy of pain control between local wound infiltration and nerve block,the investigators therefore conduct this randomized controlled trials. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study is designed as a randomized controlled trial to compare the analgesic efficacy of continuous femoral nerve block (group CFNB) with local wound infiltration (group LWI). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • local anesthetic
  • Radiographic opacification of SNB showed local anesthetic spread close to the sacrum and involvement of sacral plexus nerve roots. (hindawi.com)
  • stimulation
  • Injection of D5W (1-5 mL) will also intensify the motor response to nerve stimulation. (usra.ca)
  • The purpose of this study was to intraoperatively evaluate the function of the spiral nerve cuff electrode on the femoral nerve trunk and determine nerve size and stimulation thresholds in preparation for chronic implant. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • The nerve stimulation did not contribute to the outcome of the surgery. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • The senior author has utilized peripheral nerve stimulation in an attempt to provide a dynamic assessment during patellar realignment procedures. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • 1 , 2 The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of the use of a tourniquet on intraoperative femoral nerve stimulation and the resultant muscle contraction/activity. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation is being used to add further dynamic evaluation of the patellar realignment procedures. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • In this study, we explore the effects of the pneumatic tourniquet on direct femoral nerve stimulation used to perform dynamic in-traoperative assessment for patella tracking. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • sensation
  • Symptoms of a cervical pinched nerve include numbness, tingling, burning sensation, and pain and weakness in the affected area, according to WebMD. (reference.com)
  • passes
  • The ilioinguinal nerve closely follows the iliohypogastric nerve on the quadratus lumborum, but then passes below it to run at the level of the iliac crest. (wikipedia.org)
  • abnormal
  • Potential tests include an MRI to check for tumors or abnormal masses, an electromyograph and nerve conduction tests. (reference.com)
