• femoral
  • Bernese periacetabular osteotomy resulted in major nerve deficits in the sciatic or femoral nerves in 2.1% of 1760 patients, of whom approximately half experienced complete recovery within a mean of 5.5 months. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are supplied by the femoral nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • The risks of infection and blood clots are always present, and Ganz and his colleagues cite complications such as heterotopic ossification (new bone formation around the hip), nerve injuries, failure of the greater trochanter to heal back properly, persistent pain following the formation of scar tissue (adhesions) in the hip joint, and a small risk of damage of the blood supply to the femoral head. (wikipedia.org)
  • Femoral nerve palsies can be present, but are uncommon. (wikipedia.org)
  • spinal nerves
  • The usual causes are trauma to the intervertebral discs associated with the roots of spinal nerves L4 _ S4, but a number of other causes, including improperly administered hypodermic injections into the gluteal muscle, have been documented. (unm.edu)
  • It is derived from spinal nerves L4 to S3. (wikipedia.org)
  • conduction
  • Because conduction velocity is proportional to axon diameter, the conduction velocity of the sciatic nerve neurons also varies widely, from 0.2 to 150 m sec -1 . (unm.edu)
  • nervous system
  • As is the case with many of the large nerves of the vertebrate nervous system, the sciatic nerve is a mixed-function nerve, meaning it is made up of the axons of sensory and motor neurons. (unm.edu)
  • The sciatic nerve provides the connection to the nervous system for nearly the whole of the skin of the leg, the muscles of the back of the thigh, and those of the leg and foot. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscles
  • Exercise can encourage the uterus to lift off the sciatic nerve, and can strengthen the muscles supporting the back. (happynews.com)
  • Via the common peroneal nerve (also called the common fibular nerve), the muscles in the anterior and lateral compartments of the leg. (wikipedia.org)
  • The three groups of muscles contained in the compartments have their own nerve supply: The anterior compartment of thigh contains the sartorius muscle and the four quadriceps: the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius and vastus medialis, along with the articularis genus. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • As with other nerves in the vertebrate body, the sciatic nerve is comprised of the axons of hundreds of neurons. (unm.edu)
  • Beginning in the spinal column in the lower back and ending in the feet, this vital nerve is responsible for affecting many of the muscle groups in the lower body. (laserspineinstitute.com)
  • Widely distributed in the body, receptors for endothelin are present in blood vessels and cells of the brain, choroid plexus and peripheral nerves. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • In addition, sensory receptors in the skin of the entire lower leg and the posteriolateral surface of the upper leg transmit information to the brain via sciatic nerve neurons. (unm.edu)
  • When the sciatic nerve becomes compressed in the spinal column, the regular function of the nerve, sending sensory information from the brain to the lower back and extremities, is interfered with and sciatic nerve pain is experienced. (laserspineinstitute.com)
  • They use a device called a PSSD, Pressure-Specific Sensory Device (I believe), to see if a nerve is dying or regenerating. (healthboards.com)
  • Sciatic nerve injury may also occur from improperly performed injections into the buttock, and may result in sensory loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • Jacob's
  • According to Jewish law, the sciatic nerve (Hebrew: Gid hanasheh) cannot be eaten, to commemorate Jacob's hurt in his struggle with an Angel. (wikipedia.org)
  • At the end of the fight, the angel moves a nerve in Jacob's leg causing him to limp. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscular
  • Because a doctor of chiropractic is a neurological and muscular skeletal expert, a comprehensive nerve exam evaluation and history will be performed to figure out exactly what's causing this pain. (ehow.co.uk)
  • toes
  • Cutaneous distribution of the medial plantar nerve is to the medial sole and medial three and one half toes, including the nail beds on the dorsum (like the median nerve in the hand). (wikipedia.org)
  • Cutaneous innervation is to the lateral sole and lateral one and one half toes (like the ulnar nerve). (wikipedia.org)
  • travels
  • The nerve travels in the posterior compartment of the thigh behind (superficial to) the adductor magnus muscle, and is itself in front of (deep to) one head of the biceps femoris muscle. (wikipedia.org)
