Surgical anatomy of the superior gluteal nerve and landmarks for its localization during minimally invasive approaches to the hip.


The superior gluteal nerve (SGN) is vulnerable to damage during total hip arthroplasty and various pelvic surgeries. Recently introduced minimally invasive approaches to the hip show promise for less muscle trauma compared to conventional approaches. However, the risk of damaging the SGN has not been well documented for such alternative approaches… (More)
