Lumbal plexus anaesthesia

The most common anaesthetic procedures

The leg is supplied by two large nerves, the nervus femoralis and the nervus ischiadicus. Both nerves can be individually located and blocked.

The nervus femoralis is located in the groin, where it runs next to the palpable artery. The anaesthetists puncture the nervus ischiadicus at the top or bottom of the thigh, depending on the place of the operation. This type of nerve blockade is employed by doctors for operations on the knee joint and on the foot.
