In adults with osteoarthritis of the knee, is conservative management more effective than intra-articular corticosteroid injections in relieving pain?

J Okla State Med Assoc 2018 Aug-Sep;111(7):712-713

Saint Anthony Hospital. Family Medicine Residency. Oklahoma City, OK.

Clinical Question: In adults with osteoarthritis of the knee, do conservative management methods such as weight reduction, physical therapy, Tai Chi, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and others provide more and longer pain relief and functionality of the knee, as well as overall well-being, when compared to corticosteroid knee injections?

Answer: Yes. Although there are limited head-to-head trials directly comparing each alternative method to corticosteroid injections, overall evidence appears to indicate conservative methods as being more effective than injections, especially when considering long-term pain relief and functionality.

Cervical Medial Branch Block Volume Dependent Dispersion Patterns as a Predictor for Ablation Success: A Cadaveric Study.

PM R 2018 Oct 24. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Structural Biology and Anatomy, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 1300 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx, NY 10461.

Background: Neck pain is one of the most common causes of chronic pain and the fourth leading cause of disability worldwide; it is estimated that between 36% to 67% of this pain is due to facet arthropathy. For patients who have pain refractory to conservative treatments literature supports management with diagnostic cervical medial branch blocks (cMBBs) to identify the associated facet innervation as the source of pain followed by therapeutic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the identified nerves. Cervical RFA has good published outcomes, but the procedure is dependent upon the specificity of the diagnostic block to achieve maximal success. Read More

Echo-guided invasive pain therapy: indications and limitations.

Curr Opin Anaesthesiol 2018 Dec;31(6):739-748

Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, University of Toronto, University Health Network-Toronto Western Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Purpose Of Review: The purposes of this review are to summarize the advantages and limitations of ultrasound-guided pain interventions, and to illustrate those interventions with peripheral, axial and musculoskeletal pain procedures.

Recent Findings: With the capability of locating the interfascial plane, ultrasonography has led to the emergence of a series of plane blocks for the thoracoabdominal region in the recent decade.Ultrasonography for musculoskeletal procedures has been of growing interest because of the major advantage of direct visualization and scanning of various soft tissues and real-time spread in the injectate, thereby enhancing precision and efficacy, reducing risk of trauma and avoidance of radiation.

Topical Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block Compared With Epidural Blood Patch for Postdural Puncture Headache Management in Postpartum Patients: A Retrospective Review.

Reg Anesth Pain Med 2018 Nov;43(8):880-884

From the Department of Anesthesiology, Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, NJ.

Background And Objectives: Postdural puncture headache (PDPH) is a severe and debilitating complication of unintentional dural puncture. The criterion-standard treatment for PDPH has been epidural blood patch (EBP), but it is an invasive intervention with the potential for severe complications, such as meningitis and paralysis. We believe this is the first ever 17-year retrospective chart review in which we compare the effectiveness of sphenopalatine ganglion block (SPGB) to EBP for PDPH treatment in postpartum patients.

Spinal myoclonus: a rare presentation of cervical myelopathy.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jul 30;2018. Epub 2018 Jul 30.

Department of Neurosurgery, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Myoclonus describes a movement disorder characterised by brief, abrupt and involuntary contractions of muscles or groups of muscles, usually associated with intracranial lesions, with limited evidence linking it to spinal pathologies. The pathophysiology of spinal myoclonus is extensive and multifactorial. Infection, intramedullary and extramedullary space-occupying lesions, trauma, vascular abnormalities, degenerative processes and cervical spondylosis have been implicated with the disease, the latter been associated with cervical stenosis with no reported cases linking it to an underlying cervical disc herniation.
