Imaging Coccygeal Trauma and Coccydynia.

Radiographics 2020 Jul-Aug;40(4):1090-1106

From the Department of Radiology, Palmer College of Chiropractic-West Campus, 90 E Tasman Dr, San Jose, CA 95134 (M.R.S.); Department of Radiology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, Calif (G.R.M.); and Department of Radiology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, Calif (D.B.P., A.T., E.A.W., J.S.G.).

The coccygeal region has complex anatomy, much of which may contribute to or be the cause of coccyx region pain (coccydynia). This anatomy is well depicted at imaging, and management is often dictated by what structures are involved. Coccydynia is a common condition that is known to be difficult to evaluate and treat.

Department of Neurosurgery, Okan University School of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey.

Background: Coccydynia is a painful disease of the sacrococcygeal region, which causes discomfort, especially as symptoms are aggravated by sitting. It is frequently related to trauma and idiopathic causes, and the pain is mostly chronic in character. Percutaneous vertebroplasty and sacroplasty are the methods widely used in treating compression fractures and deficiency of vertebral body and sacrum. Read More

Influence of psychiatric disorders and chronic pain on the surgical outcome in the patient with chronic coccydynia: a single institution's experience.

Neurol Res 2020 Jun 4:1-6. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

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

Objective: Performing coccygectomy procedures on patients with psychiatric disorders and/or chronic low back pain have been previously thought of as contributing factors leading to inconsistent and often poor results. To determine if these two variables affect the post-operative pain relief obtained after coccygectomy, an analysis of the opioid requirements and pain descriptions before and after surgery was undertaken in each patient studied.

Methods: The hospital electronic medical records were searched, and only patients undergoing coccygectomy for chronic coccydynia were selected. Read More

Coccydynia relieved by a tarsal tunnel block: a case series.

Authors:
Amjid Hammodi

J Med Case Rep 2019 Nov 21;13(1):339. Epub 2019 Nov 21.

, Baghdad, Iraq.

Background: This case series describes, for the first time, to the author's knowledge, a novel treatment for coccydynia. Tarsal tunnel block with lignocaine only brought relief of chronic coccydynia lasting more than 6 months in three patients. The author adopts the theory that the myelin sheath of the posterior tibial nerve will convey the lipid-soluble lignocaine upward toward the dorsal root ganglia and the nerve roots of the lumbar spine through the uninterrupted myelin sheath, which is itself mainly formed of lipids.

[Undetected coccyx fracture in a woman with fibromyalgia].

Interdisziplinäre Schmerzambulanz, Klinikum der Universität München - Campus Innenstadt, LMU München, Pettenkoferstr. 8a, 80336, München, Deutschland.

This article presents the case of a 46-year-old woman with fibromyalgia with an undetected fracture of the coccyx. The heterogeneity of the symptoms of patients suffering from fibromyalgia including chronic widespread pain, vegetative and functional disorders, mental and physical exhaustion as well as sleep disorders can cause accidentally undetected comorbidities, especially if these are rare and predominantly present with pain as the main symptom. In the present case the reason for symptoms was detected only after 14 months of ineffective therapies and diagnostic procedures. Read More

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

Osteopathic manipulative treatment in chronic coccydynia: A case series.

J Bodyw Mov Ther 2018 Apr 19;22(2):261-265. Epub 2017 Jun 19.

S.O.M.A. Istituto Osteopatia Milano, Milan (MI), Italy; Manima Non-Profit Organization Social Assistance and Healthcare, Via Franchetti 4, 20124 Milan (MI), Italy. Electronic address:

Background: Coccydynia is a disorder associated with pain/discomfort at the base of the spine. The role of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in chronic coccydynia as well as for low back pain (LBP) and radicular pain (RP) associated with coccydynia, has not previously been investigated. This study seeks to analyse the effects of OMT on chronic coccydynia compared to physical therapy and pharmacological treatment (PTPT). Read More

Coccydynia Treated with Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation.

Case Rep Anesthesiol 2018 29;2018:5832401. Epub 2018 Apr 29.

Spine & Pain Institute of New York, New York City, NY, USA.

Coccydynia can be difficult to resolve with conventional treatment options. Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation has recently emerged as a treatment for chronic pain, but its application has not been described in the context of coccydynia. We used DRG stimulation treatment in a patient suffering from intractable coccyx pain. Read More

J Emerg Med 2018 08 18;55(2):e33-e35. Epub 2018 May 18.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Newark, New Jersey.

Background: Water slides and rides are increasingly popular attractions at amusement parks. There has been some documentation of various patterns of injury associated with these rides, most notably vaginal injuries caused by water jets. But we find no previous medical publications reporting the association between water slides/rides with coccydynia (coccyx pain) and tailbone injuries. Read More

Department of Medicine, University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand; New Zealand Brain Research Institute, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Magnetic susceptibility artefacts, caused by metallic objects, present a challenge in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this case, MRI showed metal-induced artefact in the rectum of a 14-year-old girl who presented with pain in the coccyx after a snowboarding accident. Previous radiographs showed no evidence of metal in the area. Read More

[POSTOPERATIVE CHRONIC PAIN FOLLOWING MESH AND NON-MESH REPAIR OF PELPIC ORGAN PROLAPSE].

Nihon Hinyokika Gakkai Zasshi 2018 ;109(2):90-95

Department of Urology, Japanese Red Cross Nagoya First Hospital.

(Objective) A FDA alert in 2011 warned about postoperative chronic pain following transvaginal mesh (TVM) for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We studied cases with chronic pain after TVM, natural tissue repair (NTR) and laparoscopic salcocopopexy (LSC). (Methods) We retrospectively reviewed medical charts of patients who underwent POP operations in our hospital or were referred to us after POP operations in other hospitals between 2006 and 2016.

Coccydynia - could age, trauma and body mass index be independent prognostic factors for outcomes of intervention?

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2018 Jan 15;100(1):12-15. Epub 2017 Sep 15.

Royal Derby Hospital , Derby , UK.

Introduction The aetiology of coccydynia can be multifactorial, with several associated factors such as obesity, female gender and low mood. The long-term results of operative interventions, such as manipulation under anaesthesia and coccygectomy are variable, ranging from 63-90%. Materials and methods Our aim was to identify whether age, trauma and body mass index (BMI) were independent prognostic factors in coccydynia treatment. Read More

Concurrent lumbosacral and sacrococcygeal fusion: a rare aetiology of low back pain and coccygodynia?

Folia Morphol (Warsz) 2018 21;77(2):397-399. Epub 2017 Sep 21.

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
