Management of coccydynia in the absence of X-ray evidence: Case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 24;54:63-65. Epub 2018 Nov 24.

Department of Neurosurgery, Baylor Scott and White Health, Temple, TX, USA.

Background And Importance: Coccydynia is a rare pain syndrome due to trauma to the coccyx that is diagnosed through history, physical, and sitting/standing lateral plain film radiographs. Coccydynia is typically managed conservatively with specialized cushions, NSAIDS, and physical therapy. In cases refractory to nonsurgical management, coccygectomy has a high success rate for pain reduction. Read More

Alternative way to find sacral hiatus for blind caudal block - Based on 3D pelvis CT anthropometry: A retrospective study.

Med Hypotheses 2018 Dec 14;121:70-73. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

The aim of this study is to develop an alternative way to locate the sacral hiatus for blind caudal block from the anthropometrical data measured on 3D pelvic CT. The intersection of the line connecting two sacral cornua and the midline is considered the ideal point (IP) for caudal block. The mean length from the coccyx tip to the IP was measured using 3D pelvic CT images in 30 men and 30 women and was 6. Read More

Spine Department and Deformities, Interbalkan European Medical Center, Thessaloniki, Greece..

Sacrum is a triangular bone placed in the base of the spine and formed by the synostosis of five sacral vertebrae (S1-S5). Its upper part is connected with the inferior surface of the body of L5 vertebra forming the lumbosacral joint, while its lower part is connected with the base of the coccyx forming the sacrococcygeal symphysis, an amphiarthrodial joint. The existence of four pairs of sacral fora-mina in both anterior and posterior surface of the sacrum is the most common anatomy. Read More

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Background: Several nonsurgical and surgical treatment modalities are available for patients with chronic coccydynia, with controversial results. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ECSWT) is effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal disorders; however, it has not been tested for chronic coccydynia.

Objectives: We performed the current study to determine the effects of ECSWT on pain in patients with chronic coccydynia. Read More

Transsacrococcygeal approach to ganglion impar block for treatment of chronic coccygodynia after spinal arachnoid cyst removal: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2016 Sep;95(39):e5010

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Inha University School of Medicine, Inha University Hospital, Incheon, South Korea.

Background: Coccygodynia is a pain in the region of the coccyx that radiates to the sacral, perineal area. The cause of the pain is often unknown. Coccygodynia is diagnosed through the patient's past history, a physical examination, and dynamic radiographic study, but the injection of local anesthetics or a diagnostic nerve blockade are needed to distinguish between somatic, neuropathic, and combined pain.

A Rare Case of Tuberculosis with Sacrococcygeal Involvement Miming a Neoplasm.

Case Rep Orthop 2016 20;2016:7286806. Epub 2016 Jul 20.

Department of Orthopedics, MES Medical College, Sahloul University Hospital, 4051 Sousse, Tunisia.

Infection of the lumbosacral junction by tuberculosis is quite rare and occurs in only 1 to 2% of all cases of spinal tuberculosis; moreover, isolated sacrococcygeal or coccygeal tuberculosis is much rarer. Failure to identify and treat these areas of involvement at an early stage may lead to serious complications such as vertebral collapse, spinal compression, and spinal deformity. In the present paper, we report an uncommon case of spinal tuberculosis with sacrococcygeal location revealed by a chronic low back pain that was successfully managed. Read More

Supine and Standing AP Pelvis Radiographs in the Evaluation of Pincer Femoroacetabular Impingement.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2016 Jul 25;474(7):1692-6. Epub 2016 Feb 25.

Congress Orthopedic Associates, 800 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA, 91105, USA.

Background: Pelvic tilt can affect the presence of the ischial spine sign and crossover sign. Numerous studies of pelvic tilt on radiographic measurements of pincer impingement have shown that increasing anterior tilt is associated with more radiographic signs of pincer impingement. However, to our knowledge, no study has directly compared supine and standing plain radiographs in patients with respect to lateral center-edge (LCE) angle, acetabular inclination, crossover sign, and ischial spine sign.

Coccydynia related to the use of a contraceptive vaginal ring.

Reumatol Clin 2017 Jan - Feb;13(1):42-43. Epub 2016 Jan 21.

Sección de Reumatología, Hospital Universitario General de Castellón, Castellón de la Plana, Castellón, España.

Coccydynia is a syndrome that rheumatologists encounter frequently in the form of tailbone pain, which is usually worse when sitting. Although the most common origin is trauma, there are several other possible causes of pain in the coccyx. We present an unusual case in which coccydynia developed shortly after the insertion of a contraceptive vaginal ring and remitted completely upon removal of this system. Read More

Spine Cryoablation: Pain Palliation and Local Tumor Control for Vertebral Metastases.

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 2016 Jan 1;37(1):189-95. Epub 2015 Oct 1.

From the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Missouri.

Background And Purpose: Percutaneous cryoablation has emerged as a minimally invasive technique for the management of osseous metastases. The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of percutaneous imaging-guided spine cryoablation for pain palliation and local tumor control for vertebral metastases.

Materials And Methods: Imaging-guided spine cryoablation was performed in 14 patients (31 tumors) with vertebral metastases refractory to conventional chemoradiation therapy or analgesics, to achieve pain palliation and local tumor control in this retrospective study. Read More

Extragonadal malignant germ cell tumors: a clinicopathological and immunohistochemical analysis of 48 cases at a single Chinese institution.

Int J Clin Exp Pathol 2015 1;8(5):5650-7. Epub 2015 May 1.

Department of Pathology, Ren Ji Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University 160 Pujian Road, Shanghai 200127, China.

Primary extragonadal malignant germ cell tumors (EMGCTs) are rare and characterized by the location in the midline of the body, including mediastinum, CNS, retroperitoneum and coccyx. EMGCTs present with different clinical and biologic characteristics in different tumor locations. Accurately diagnosing MEGCTs would be very difficult by performing on HE staining alone, and requires immunohistochemical verification. Read More
