Its branches are all cutaneous, and are distributed to the gluteal region, the perineum, and the back of the thigh and leg.
Muscles of the posterior abdominal wall
There will usually be pain below and slightly medial to the anterior superior iliac spine, close to the inguinal ligament attachment. To determine the attachment of the inguinal ligament, palpate along the ligament to the bone. A positive indication that meralgia paresthetica is present occurs when deep pressure in this area causes radiation of pain in the skin supplied by the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.
Using a -in., 75-gauge needle, a skin wheal is raised lateral to the Achilles tendon and just above the lateral malleolus ( Figure 65 ). The needle is then inserted through the wheal and advanced toward the fibula while injecting 6–8 mL of local anesthetic.
