Imaging methods such as direct radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography (USG), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and MRI neurography can be used.[19] The MRI neurography for sciatic, femoral, obturator, lateral femoral cutaneous, genitofemoral, ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, pudendal, and posterior femoral cutaneous nerves are available to evaluate the common pathological conditions of large and small pelvic nerves.[6] In addition, cystoscopy and laparoscopy are among the diagnostic methods used in patients with CPP.[20,21] A case diagnosed by USG and presented with anterior abdominal wall endometriosis is shown in Figure 2.
Although somatic pain due to Pfannenstiel incision in the abdominal wall is prevented by ilioinguinal/ iliohypogastric block, it is clear that this would not be effective for the visceral component of postoperative intra-abdominal pain.
Abdominal muscles such as rectus abdominis, oblique, and tranversus abdominis, are innervated by the lower 6 thoracic nerves iliohypogastric and ilio-inguinal nerves.
Cohen and Foster first described the use of pRF directed to the genitofemoral, ilioinguinal, and iliohypogastric nerves in 3 patients with groin and testicular pain (53) (Level of evidence 4, Grade C).
Heavy patches increase the frequency of post-herniorrhaphy chronic inguinal pain as a result of ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve compression with the increase of inflammation in the inguinal region (16).
The ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genitofemoral nerves are in close proximity to Pfannenstiel and laparoscopic port site incisions.
Additionally, the spinal nerves, comprising T11 (the 11th intercostal nerve), T12 (the subcostal nerve), and L1 (iliohypogastric and ilioinguinal nerves) were localized, and the staining of these nerves was evaluated.
Neurectomy of the ilioinguinal nerve, occasionallyin combination with iliohypogastric or genitofemoral nerve resection, is frequently considered.
Micturition disorders resulting from CRC surgery have been attributed to injuries to the iliohypogastric and/or pelvic splanchnic nervous systems [4].
The targets of this procedure are the sensory nerves originating from T7 to T11 that innervate the abdominal wall (intercostal, ilioinguinal, subcostal, and iliohypogastric nerves) [2-5].
