In brief: Anatomy

The femoral nerve arises from the second, third, and fourth lumbar nerves (L2-L4).
It descends through the fibers of the psoas major muscle, emerging from the muscle at the lower part of its lateral border, and passes down between it and the iliacus muscle, behind the iliac fascia; it then runs beneath the inguinal ligament, into the thigh, and splits into an anterior and a posterior division.
