To report survival, functional, and quality-of-life (QoL) outcomes after extended radical resection for advanced pelvic tumors with en bloc sciatic or femoral nerve resection.

This is a rare case of sciatic neuropathy in a 46-year-old man secondary to an intraneural ganglion cyst from the hip joint extending upward to the lumbar plexus and the L5 nerve root. Magnetic resona...
Maximal aggressive meningioma resection is suggested to provide for the best tumor control rates. However, radical surgery of meningiomas located at the frontal skull base may be accompanied by the im...
Continuous blockade of the femoral nerve is widely used for postoperative analgesia after hip surgery. It can be achieved by ultrasound-guided placement of a femoral nerve catheter via either the in p...
Peripheral nerve injury is an important cause of incapability and has limited available treatment. Autologous donor nerve implant is the golden standard treatment, however, may cause secondary deficit...
The aim of this study is to compare the effects of extended lymphadenectomy (E-LD) and regional lymphadenectomy (R-LD) on outcome after radical resection of hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCCA).
Sciatic nerve blocks are frequently used for anesthesia or analgesia for surgery of the lower legs. Currently, if ultrasound is used to find the sciatic nerve, the leg must be raised to l...
Knee arthroplasty has a high potential for postoperative pain. This study compares analgesia and postoperative bleeding from intrathecal morphine with the continuous femoral and a single-s...
This is a prospective study comparing femoral nerve block plus sciatic nerve block to femoral nerve block plus infiltration of the posterior knee capsule (IPACK) in patients undergoing art...
56 ASA physical status II and III patients, aged 45-75 year, undergoing elective below knee amputation were randomly assigned to receive either sciatic nerve block using a popliteal approa...
The aim of the study is to compare the time of home discharge in day-case patients receiving either a spinal anesthesia or a combined sciatic-femoral nerve block for knee arthroscopy
A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
Radical mastectomy with removal of the ipsilateral half of the sternum and a portion of ribs two through five with the underlying pleura and the internal mammary lymph nodes.
The lateral of the two terminal branches of the sciatic nerve. The peroneal (or fibular) nerve provides motor and sensory innervation to parts of the leg and foot.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
