What is femoral nerve injury?

The femoral nerve is located in the leg that provides sensation to the front of the thigh and part of the lower leg. Dysfunction of the femoral nerve is generally due to direct injury (trauma), prolonged pressure on the nerve, and compression of the nerve by nearby parts of the body or disease.
