Authors:
Haytham Eloqayli

Biomed Res Int 2018 17;2018:8793843. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST), Irbid 22110, Jordan.

Background: Spine-related pain is a complex heterogeneous condition. Excessive reliance on radiological imaging might lead to overdiagnosis of incidental asymptomatic spinal changes and unnecessary surgery. Approaches to the clinical management of spine pain should (1) identify pain generators, types, patterns, and mechanisms; (2) confirm clinical suspension with a diagnostic injection; and (3) ensure that treatment is aimed at controlling pain and improving patient function rather than image-based surgical success.

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Fluoroscopically-Guided Sacroiliac Joint Injections: A Comparison of the Posteroanterior and Classical Oblique Techniques.

Neurospine 2018 Oct 7. Epub 2018 Oct 7.

Anesthesiology, Pain management, and Perioperative Medicine, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, MI, USA.

Objective: The sacroiliac joint can be a primary source of pain or part of multifactorial syndromes. As there is no single historical, physical examination-based, or radiological feature that definitively establishes a diagnosis of sacroiliac joint pain, diagnostic blocks are regarded as the gold standard. The primary aim of this randomized trial was to compare the posteroanterior approach with the classic oblique approach for sacroiliac joint injection based on an assessment of procedure times and patient-reported pain outcomes in subjects scheduled for fluoroscopically-guided sacroiliac joint injections.

Diagnosing Sacroiliac Joint Pain.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2019 Feb;27(3):85-93

From the Department of Orthopedic Surgery (Dr. Thawrani), Cincinnati VA Medical Center, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (Dr. Agabegi and Dr. Asghar), Cincinnati, OH.

The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a diarthrodial joint that has been implicated as a pain generator in approximately 10% to 25% of patients with mechanical low back or leg symptoms. Unique anatomic and physiologic characteristics of SIJ make it susceptible to mechanical stress and also create challenges in the diagnosis of SIJ pain. A variety of inciting causes for SIJ pain may exist, ranging from repetitive low-impact activities such as jogging to increased stress after multilevel spine fusion surgery to high-energy trauma such as in motor vehicle accidents.

The Validity and Reliability of Provocation Tests in the Diagnosis of Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

Pain Physician 2018 07;21(4):E367-E376

Ministry of Health Erzurum Regional Training and Research Hospital, Turkey.

Background: Although sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD) is generally regarded as a source of lumbar pain, its anatomical position and the absence of a diagnostic 'gold standard' lead to difficulties at examination and differential diagnosis. However, since sacroiliac (SI) joint blocks only provide information about pathologies of joint origin and since SIJD developing secondary to pathologies in structures around the joint can be missed. Provocation and palpation tests also need to be used in diagnosis. Read More

Continuing Anti-thrombotic Medication During Low-to-Intermediate Risk Spinal Procedures: A Retrospective Evaluation.

Pain Physician 2017 07;20(5):437-443

Spine & Pain Institute of New York, New York City, New York; Department of Anesthesiology, New York University Langone Medical Center, New York City, New York.

Background: The current American Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA) guidelines recommend discontinuing anti-thrombotic therapy prior to any interventional spine procedures to decrease the incidence of bleeding complications. However, discontinuing anti-thrombotics may pose considerable danger in terms of cerebrovascular and cardiovascular events. Recent evidence suggests that some spinal interventions may still be performed safely with anti-thrombotics on board and some practitioners thus elect to continue certain anti-thrombotics for these procedures.

Ablation of the sacroiliac joint using MR-guided high intensity focused ultrasound: a preliminary experiment in a swine model.

J Ther Ultrasound 2017 26;5:17. Epub 2017 Jun 26.

Department of Anesthesiology-Critical Care, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Ave, New York, NY 10065 USA.

Background: Dysfunction of the Sacroiliac Joint (SIJ) is one of the key sources of low back pain. For prolonged pain relief, some patients undergo fluoroscopic guided radio-frequency (RF) ablation of SIJ, during which a number of RF probes are inserted to create thermal lesions that disrupt the posterior sacral nerve supply. This procedure is minimally invasive, laborious, time-consuming and costly. Read More

Safety of tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitors for treatment of ankylosing spondylitis: A meta-analysis.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Jun;96(25):e7145

Department of Orthopaedics, Nanchang Hongdu Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nanchang, Jiangxi, China.

Background: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic immune-mediated disease affecting the sacroiliac joints and the spine, manifesting with new bone formation and osteopenia. Five tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) inhibitors (infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, certolizumab, and golimumab) are available for the treatment of AS, however, the results for the safety of TNF-α inhibitors in the treatment of AS are not consistent.

Methods: In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis to determine the safety of TNF-α inhibitors compared with placebo in reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation of AS patients. Read More

Low Back Pain in Pregnancy: Investigations, Management, and Role of Neuraxial Analgesia and Anaesthesia: A Systematic Review.

Gynecol Obstet Invest 2017 18;82(5):417-436. Epub 2017 May 18.

Department of Anaesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, University of Western Ontario, University Hospital, LHSC, London, ON, Canada.

Background: Low back pain (LBP) is commonly experienced during pregnancy and is often poorly managed. There is much ambiguity in diagnostic work-up, appropriate management and decision-making regarding the use of neuraxial analgesia and anaesthesia during labour and delivery in these patients. This systematic review summarises the evidence regarding investigations, management strategies and considerations around performing neuraxial blocks for pregnant women with LBP. Read More

Leg symptoms associated with sacroiliac joint disorder and related pain.

Clin Neurol Neurosurg 2017 Jun 30;157:55-58. Epub 2017 Mar 30.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, JCHO Sendai Hospital, Japan.

Objective: The symptoms of sacroiliac joint (SIJ) disorders are usually detected in the buttock and groin, and occasionally referred to the thigh and leg. However, lumbar disorders also cause symptoms in these same body regions. The presence of a characteristic, symptomatic pattern in the legs would be useful for diagnosing SIJ disorders. Read More

[Diagnosis of Patients with Painful Sacroiliac Joint Syndrome].

Z Orthop Unfall 2017 Jun 11;155(3):281-287. Epub 2017 Apr 11.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Bonn.

Pain coming from the sacroiliac (SI) joints can explain up to 25% of all chronic low back pain. A careful differential diagnosis is required to avoid misdiagnosis of low back pain. In addition to historical findings, positive findings on physical examination maneuvers that stress the SI joint are a key component diagnosis. Read More

A Diagnostic Scoring System for Sacroiliac Joint Pain Originating from the Posterior Ligament.

Pain Med 2017 02;18(2):228-238

Division of Biostatistics, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

Objective: Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain originating from the posterior ligament manifests in not only the buttocks but also the groin and lower extremities and thus may be difficult to discern from pain secondary to other lumbar disorders. We aimed to develop a simple clinical diagnostic tool to help physicians distinguish between patients with SIJ pain originating from the posterior ligament and those with lumbar disc herniation (LDH) or lumbar spinal canal stenosis (LSS).

Design: Prospective case-control study. Read More
