PURPOSE Functional neosphincters after pudendal nerve anastomosis proved possible in animal models and may be applicable in humans, but access is a recognized problem. We report the occurrence of pudendal nerve anomalies, its implications for reconstruction, and describe a new approach for maximal exposure. METHODS Adult human cadavers were positioned prone and dissected via a gluteal approach. Pudendal nerve variations and physical measurements were analyzed statistically. RESULTS A new… CONTINUE READING
