Therefore deep gluteal syndrome has been the term suggested to describe the clinical manifestation of these various points of nervous compressive pathology. Differential diagnoses include causes of posterior hip pain and sciatica. The whole sciatic nerve trajectory in the deep gluteal space can be addressed by an endoscopic surgical technique, allowing the treatment of the diverse causes of sciatic nerve entrapment. *Oklahoma Sports Science & Orthopaedics †University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Oklahoma City, OK The authors declare that they have nothing to disclose.
