The Lumbosacral Plexus

Enter Course

Course Description

This program is worth up to 3.0 CME credits.

Many patients present with weakness or sensory loss in one lower extremity. It is expected that the practicing neurologist would be able to render an accurate diagnosis of a mononeuropathy (e.g. fibular neuropathy), lumbosacral plexopathy or radiculopathy on the basis of a bedside clinical examination rather than relying on electrodiagnostic or imaging studies. This course will provide an approach by which these patients may be assessed with a high degree of accuracy.

Up to 3.0 CME credits
