Femoral Nerve

The femoral nerve is a nerve in the thigh that provisions skin on the upper thigh and inward leg, and the muscles that broaden the knee. The back cutaneous femoral nerve gives cutaneous inervation of the back surface of the thigh and leg, just as the skin of the perineum. The back cutaneous nerve of the thigh leaves the pelvis through the sciatic foramen, underneath the piriformis muscle and goes down the butt cheek and thigh on the average part of the sciatic nerve. It comprises of nerve roots from the front and back divisions of S1, S2 and foremost divisions of S2, S3. The perineal branches give tactile inervation to the predominant average surface of the thighs, the skin of the scrotum or labia majora. The gluteal branches, rotate toward the sky around the lower outskirt of the gluteus maximus, and gracefully the skin covering the lower and horizontal piece of that muscle. The fundamental part to the rear of the thigh and leg comprises of various fibers got from the two sides of the nerve, and appropriated to the skin covering the back and average side of the thigh, the popliteal fossa, and the upper piece of the rear of the leg.
