I would get nerve conduction studies prior to surgery. Also, the median nerve can be trapped higher up: this is called pronator teres syndrome, and is above the wrist and immeidately below the elbow. Check it out on wikipedia. ...Read more

Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

What is radio frequency ablation?Can it work for calming inflammation of irritated ilioinguinal nerve?

What is radio frequency ablation?Can it work for calming inflammation of  irritated ilioinguinal nerve?

Yes: Before an ablation you would normally undergo at least two nerve blocks of the nerve to see if the there is any positive pain reduction. If there is and you meet certain criteria, then ablation could be an option. I would recommend at least two blocks prior to help reduce the change of a placebo effect. Discuss in detail with the doc recommending the procedure. ...Read more

Can magnetic resonance neurography detect injury/inflammation to the ilioinguinal nerve or the iliohypogastric nerve?If not, what can?

It may: Mr neurography has not been perfected, is only performed at a few specialized centers, and highly operator dependent. High resolution ultrasound may be more cost effective and provide the desired information. Regardless, injury to these nerves can be diagnosed on clinical grounds and imaging is rarely needed. Diagnostic nerve block with an anesthetic agent may help confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
