People also ask, what causes Ilioinguinal nerve pain?

Ilioinguinal Neuralgia Causes The most common causes of compression of the ilioinguinal nerve are from trauma, especially blunt trauma to the nerve, as well as damage to the nerve during pelvic surgery. Ilioinguinal neuralgia will very rarely occur by itself.

Additionally, what is Ilioinguinal nerve entrapment? Ilioinguinal nerve entrapment is a common cause of groin or inguinal area pain. The ilioinguinal nerve can become entrapped after pelvic or hernia surgery, which can result in disabling pain in the inguinal area, lateral genitalia, or abdominal wall. Ilioinguinal entrapment causing abdominal pain is discussed in Chap.

Likewise, people ask, what does the Ilioinguinal nerve do?

The ilioinguinal nerve innervates the anterior surface of the scrotum or labia majora, root of the penis or mons pubis, and a small portion of the upper antero-medial thigh. It also innervates the internal oblique and transversus abdominis muscles.

How long does Ilioinguinal nerve block last?

A nurse from HPC will telephone you 24 - 48 hours following your procedure to check on your progress and organise a follow-up appointment. The steroid may remain effective for 1 – 6 months, depending on amount of irritation or inflammation present.
