Abstract

The posterior cutaneous femoral nerve provides cutaneous inervation of the posterior surface of the thigh and leg, as well as the skin of the perineum. Using Dumitru et al. [1] technique for the assessment of this nerve, we studied one hundred and sixteen limbs from fifty-eight healthy volunteers. The mean values for the posterior cutaneous femoral nerve were as follows: onset latency 2.0 msec (±0.5), amplitude 7.0μV (±2.1), nerve conduction velocity 52 m/s (±4). The assessment of the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve is simple and reproducible. The results of this standardization were similar to the ones described in international literature.
