Which nerves are at risk of compression as the wind round the fibula and medial tibital condyle? -Saphenous -Peroneal
Sciatic Nerve Inury -caused by stretching in improper lithotomy position
Saphenous Nerve Injury -compression injury as the calf rests on stirrups
Flexion of the hip joints may damage which nerves? Femoral nerve (compression) - Sciatic and Obturator (stretch)
Common Peroneal Nerve Injury -susceptible because it is close to the fibular head -Inury= foot drop, inability to dorsal flexion of toes, inability to every, loss of doral senstaion
