It has been well-established that a large portion of the lumbosacral plexus is located intra-abdominally, in the retroperitoneal space. However, most of the literature descriptions of lesions on this plexus refer to its extra-abdominal parts whereas its intra-abdominal portions are often neglected.The objective of this review paper is to describe the laparoscopic anatomy of intrapelvic nerve bundles, as well as the findings and advances already achieved by Neuropelveology practitioners.
