Daño al nervio femoral

El nervio femoral está localizado en la pierna y enerva los músculos que la ayudan a enderezarse. Este nervio suministra sensibilidad a la parte anterior del muslo y parte de la pierna inferior. La fractura pélvica es un factor de riesgo de daño a dicho nervio. Los síntomas de este daño comprenden trastornos del movimiento y/o sensibilidad en la pierna, al igual que debilidad. Si se puede identificar y tratar la causa de la disfunción del nervio femoral en forma exitosa, hay posibilidad de lograr la recuperación total.
