Nervio tibial

Toggle: English / Spanish

La disfunción del nervio tibial ocurre cuando este nervio sufre algún daño. Entre otros síntomas, se puede presentar adormecimiento, dolor, hormigueo y debilidad de la rodilla o pie. El nervio tibial se lesiona generalmente por fracturas u otras lesiones en la parte posterior de la rodilla o en la parte baja de la pierna. Éste puede verse afectado por enfermedades sistémicas tal como la diabetes mellitus. El nervio también puede sufrir daño por la presión de un tumor, absceso o por sangrado dentro de la rodilla. El tratamiento depende, por lo general, de la causa que haya producido el daño al nervio tibial.
