Acta Chir Orthop Traumatol Cech 2022 ;89(2):158-163

Neurochirurgická klinika Fakultní nemocnice Olomouc.

Coccygodynia, or tailbone pain, is the most common in women after trauma (complicated childbirth, fall). This pain can be treated conservatively (by using analgesics, local injections, physiotherapy) or by surgical coccygectomy. In the presented article, a set of five female patients is evaluated, in whom, after the failing conservative therapy, coccygectomy was indicated for persistent coccygodynia. Read More

Department of Orthopaedics, Instituto de Ciências Médicas da Índia (AIIMS), Raipur, Chhattisgarh, Índia.

Nearly 90% of cases of coccydynia can be managed with conservative medical treatment; the remaining 10% need other invasive modalities for pain relief, such as ganglion impar block (GIB) or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the ganglion impar. A systematic research was conducted of PubMed, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar to identify studies reporting pain relief in terms of visual analogue scale (VAS), or its counterparts, following GIB or RFA in coccydynia patients with the purpose to determine the efficacy of GIB and RFA of the ganglion impar in controlling pain in coccydynia patients. Seven studies were delineated, with a total of 189 patients (104 in GIB group and 85 in RFA group). Read More
