The location of lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) in relation to the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the iliac crest was investigated in 96 embalmed cadaveric specimens. Fifty-six nerves (58.3%) passed medial to the ASIS. Twenty-two nerves (22.9%) passed at the ASIS. Eighteen nerves (18.8%) passed lateral to the ASIS. The LFCN is usually located at 2.1 +/- 0.8 to 3.9 +/- 1.0 cm below the crest in the range of 2-5 cm lateral to the ASIS, respectively. When the anterior iliac crest… CONTINUE READING
