Femoral nerve injury can occur due to severe traffic accident injuries with pelvic fracture. The doctors use Sural nerve grafts or ipsilateral obturator nerve transfer to restore femoral nerve function. The researchers have found a new procedure to transfer the contralateral obturator nerve in restoring femoral nerve function. A 30-year-old male was suffering from complete lumbar plexus rapture. The researchers went deeper to study the case thoroughly. They have observed every information related to this case, including treatment procedure, imaging reports, and other necessary things. He received a contralateral obturator nerve transfer in the hospital. After two years of follow-up, he had gained muscle strength in his 23rd-month follow-up, with a normal gait. His Lower Extremity, Functional Scale score, was 58.75%, and Femoral Nerve Motor Function Scale score was 61%.

Therefore, it has been observed that Contralateral obturator nerve transfer is very effective in Femoral nerve injury caused by a severe pelvic fracture due to traffic accidents. However, it is a rare case. Therefore, the researchers are still looking for some more evidence regarding the same. As there are no active cases found, the researchers are trying to study it, searching for new facts and evidence.
