The nerve runs between the sacrospinous and sacrotuberous ligaments, for instance, and entrapment between these two ligaments is probably the most common cause of pudendal neuralgia.
The sacrotuberous ligament fans out from the ischial tuberosity to the posterior superior iliac spine and the tuberosities of the sacrum; and the sacrospinous ligament, deep to the sacrotuberous ligament, attaches from the posterolateral aspects of the S3-S5 sacral body segments to the ischial spine [36].
The surgery itself involves sectioning the sacrotuberous ligament into two parts to explore the proximal nerve, incising Alcock's canal, sectioning the sacrospinous ligament at the ischial spine, and then transposing the pudendal nerve.
