Anaesthesist 2019 Feb 5;68(2):108-114. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Klinik für Anästhesiologie, HELIOS-Kliniken Schwerin, Wismarsche Straße 393-7, 19049, Schwerin, Deutschland.

The authors describe in a clinical case series (n = 7) of older (age 78-95 years) high-risk patients the successful surgical treatment of proximal femoral fractures in a peripheral regional anesthesia technique. After positioning on the non-fractured side, a double injection technique (dual guidance concept: sonography plus nerve stimulation) was chosen. The injections were performed parasacrally (blockade of the sacral plexus under the piriformis muscle) and lumbar-paravertebrally (psoas compartment block and transmuscular quadratus lumborum block).

Epidemiology and etiology of secondary piriformis syndrome: A single-institution retrospective study.

J Clin Neurosci 2019 Jan 24;59:209-212. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA. Electronic address:

Piriformis syndrome (PS) is a rare etiology of extra-spinal sciatica in which pathologies associated with or around the piriformis muscle (PM) irritate the adjacent sciatic nerve (SN), however, there is scarcity in the literature regarding its exact etiologies, thus, we performed a retrospective study to elucidate the epidemiology of PS and assess various causes of the syndrome. Our study included patients assessed at our institution who presented with sciatica of non-spinal origin between May 2014 and December 2015. Radiology reports of all patients who received pelvic MRI were examined for positive findings involving PM and SN. Read More

EMG in piriformis syndrome diagnosis: Reliability of peroneal H-reflex according to results obtained after surgery, Botox injection and medical treatment.

J Clin Neurosci 2019 Jan 28;59:55-61. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Orthopedic Surgery Department, Sacré-Coeur Hospital, P.O. Box 116, Hazmieh, Lebanon.

Diagnosing piriformis syndrome (PS) throughout the past decades was not that easy, however peroneal H-reflex was proved as reliable test for PS with the change in wave amplitude and delay in conduction as parameters for diagnosis. We interpreted these parameters according to treatment's results carried out for patients presenting clinical PS, aiming to define a threshold value for peroneal H-reflex delay to accurately diagnose. A retrospective mono-centric review of 27 patients, 9 females and 18 males, aged 22-65 years, benefited from peroneal H-reflex test and treated for clinical PS. Read More

Letter to the editor involving the article 'Piriformis muscle syndrome: A cross-sectional imaging study in 116 patients and evaluation of therapeutic outcome'.

Eur Radiol 2018 Dec 19;28(12):5354-5355. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Istanbul University, Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty, Istanbul, Turkey.

Key Points: • Lack of use of local injection test to confirm the diagnosis may lead to miss the diagnosis of PMS of myofascial origin. • Piriformis muscle syndrome should be diagnosed on the basis of clinical symptoms, specific physical examinations, and positive response to local injection. • Sciatic nerve entrapment is not a must in the diagnosis of PMS and PMS is mostly myofascial in origin.

Ultrasound Imaging and Guided Injection for the Lateral and Posterior Hip.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2018 04;97(4):285-291

From the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, National Taiwan University Hospital, BeiHu Branch and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei, Taiwan (K-VC, W-TW); Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, School of Medicine, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia (HLL); John A Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii (HLL); and Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Hacettepe University Medical School, Ankara, Turkey (LÖ).

Ultrasound has emerged as one of the most utilized tools to diagnose musculoskeletal disorders and to assist in interventions. Traditionally, sonographic examination of the hip joint has been challenging because most of the major structures are deeply situated, thus requiring the use of curvilinear transducer for better penetrance. The posterior lateral hip is a frequent area for musculoskeletal pain and nerve entrapments. Read More

Sciatic neuropathy developed after injection during curettage.

Agri 2016 Jan;28(1):46-8

Department of Neurology, Istanbul University Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Intramuscular injections are likely the most common cause of sciatic nerve injury in developing countries. Less common causes include piriformis syndrome, primary tumors of the sciatic nerve, metastatic tumors invading or compressing the nerve, endometriosis, vascular malformations, and prolonged immobilization or positioning. While the most reliable diagnostic and prognostic methods include nerve conduction studies and electromyography, magnetic resonance imaging has been suggested as an alternative method of determining type of lesion, establishing location, and investigating level of nerve involvement.

Evaluation and management of ischiofemoral impingement: a pathophysiologic, radiologic, and therapeutic approach to a complex diagnosis.

Skeletal Radiol 2016 Jun 3;45(6):771-87. Epub 2016 Mar 3.

Department of Radiology, POVISA Hospital, Vigo, Pontevedra, Spain.

Ischiofemoral impingement syndrome (IFI) is an underrecognized form of atypical, extra-articular hip impingement defined by hip pain related to narrowing of the space between the ischial tuberosity and the femur. The etiology of IFI is multifactorial and potential sources of ischiofemoral engagement include anatomic variants of the proximal femur or pelvis, functional disorders as hip instability, pelvic/spinal instability, or abductor/adductor imbalance, ischial tuberosity enthesopathies, trauma/overuse or extreme hip motion, iatrogenic conditions, tumors and other pathologies. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the diagnostic procedure of choice for assessing IFI and may substantially influence patient management. Read More

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Section, "OORR" Hospital, University of Foggia, Foggia 71100, Italy.

Piriformis muscle syndrome (PMS) is caused by prolonged or excessive contraction of the piriformis muscle associated with pain in the buttocks, hips, and lower limbs because of the close proximity to the sciatic nerve. Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) reduces muscle hypertonia as well as muscle contracture and pain inhibiting substance P release and other inflammatory factors. BoNT-A injection technique is important considering the difficult access of the needle for deep location, the small size of the muscle, and the proximity to neurovascular structures. Read More
