Abstract:
Incidence of nerve injury in traumatic hip dislocations is up to 10 %. Sciatic nerve is the most common injured nerve in this setting. In the medical literature, there are few documented cases of femoral nerve injury following hip dislocations. We report a 44-year-old man with right femoral nerve palsy following delayed reduction of an anterior dislocation of hip. Two months after closed reduction, complete clinical recovery of right femoral nerve was achieved and the patient was able to resume his job.
