The anatomy of the sciatic nerve has been well described in literature.[4-8] It arises from the anterior divisions of L4 through S3 and the posterior divisions of L4 through S2 forming the tibial and peroneal branches, respectively.[7] These nerve fibers coalesce to enter the gluteal region through the greater sciatic foramen below the piriformis muscle coursing inferiorly beneath the biceps femoris muscle in the thigh.[8] Although the tibial and peroneal branches are separate and distinct[1,5] along the entire length of the nerve, these are technically formed as the sciatic nerve bifurcates which is usually in the distal thigh.
