Nerve Entrapment

Nerve entrapments in the leg, similar to those previously described for the thigh, can include medially branches of the saphenous nerve, anterolaterally the peroneal39 or superficial peroneal nerve,40,41 and laterally the sural nerve. These are all described in rare cases. Localized areas of possible constriction are best identified by a positive Tinel sign along the course of the involved nerve. A diagnostic and potentially therapeutic injection of local anesthetic and corticosteroid may be helpful, especially if surgical release of constricting fascial soft tissue is considered.41
