Pudendal Neuralgia is a chronic neuropathic pelvic pain that is disabling and often misdiagnosed. Its treatment includes analgesics, neuromodulator drugs and nerve block, nevertheless, the surgical decompression is an effective and safe treatment when conservative treatment fails. The Pudendal Nerve release by laparoscopic approach, has proven to be a minimally invasive, safe and a feasible technique that allows an excellent visualization of all the neurological structures of the presacral obturator region as well as an accurate dissection of the pudendal nerve.
