In this regard, what does the Iliohypogastric nerve do?

The lumbar plexus and its branches. (Iliohypogastric visible at upper left.) The iliohypogastric nerve is a nerve that originates from the lumbar plexus that supplies sensation to skin over the lateral gluteal region and motor to the internal oblique and transverse abdominal muscles.

Also Know, 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.

Keeping this in consideration, 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.

How does Ilioinguinal nerve enter inguinal canal?

As it descends the nerve often crosses across the iliacus muscle. At the anterior end of the iliac crest the ilioinguinal nerve pierces the transversus abdominis and internal oblique muscles to enter the inguinal canal from the side, not through the deep ring.
