Efficacy of radiofrequency ablation in people with refractory meralgia paresthetica

Takeaway

  • Medically intractable meralgia paresthetica (MP) can be treated by continuous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.

Why this matters

    Emerging treatment options for MP include pulsed radiofrequency, RFA, and chemical ablation of the lateral femoral nerve; however, few case reports exist. This is one of the largest RFA studies in people with MP to date.
