Pyramidal syndrome is a pathology included within nerve compressive syndromes where the protagonists are compressed the sciatic nerve by the piriformis muscle, provides clinically similar to sciatica symptoms, which can be confused with a radicular pathology. Treatment of these patients is usually enough with drugs and physical therapy; however, some cases result in invasive procedures such as infi ltration and surgical treatment of piriformis muscle tenotomy. The purpose of this article is to…
