Efficacy of Epidural Injections in Managing Chronic Spinal Pain: A Best Evidence Synthesis.

Pain Physician 2015 Nov;18(6):E939-1004

Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Background: Epidural injections have been used since 1901 in managing low back pain and sciatica. Spinal pain, disability, health, and economic impact continue to increase, despite numerous modalities of interventions available in managing chronic spinal pain. Thus far, systematic reviews performed to assess the efficacy of epidural injections in managing chronic spinal pain have yielded conflicting results. Read More

A systematic evaluation of thoracic interlaminar epidural injections.

Pain Physician 2012 Jul-Aug;15(4):E497-514

Millennium Pain Center, Bloomington, IL, USA.

Background: There is a paucity of literature on the use of epidural injections for the treatment of chronic mid and upper back pain due to disc herniation and radiculitis, axial or discogenic pain, spinal stenosis, post surgery syndrome, and post thoracotomy pain syndrome.

Study Design: A systematic review of therapeutic thoracic epidural injection therapy for chronic mid and upper back pain.

Objective: The objective of this systematic review is to determine the effects of thoracic interlaminar epidural injections with or without steroids, with or without fluoroscopy, and for various conditions including disc herniation and radiculitis, axial or discogenic pain, spinal stenosis, post thoracic surgery syndrome, and post thoracotomy pain syndrome.

An algorithmic approach for clinical management of chronic spinal pain.

Pain Physician 2009 Jul-Aug;12(4):E225-64

Pain Management Center of Paducah, Paducah, KY, USA.

Interventional pain management, and the interventional techniques which are an integral part of that specialty, are subject to widely varying definitions and practices. How interventional techniques are applied by various specialties is highly variable, even for the most common procedures and conditions. At the same time, many payors, publications, and guidelines are showing increasing interest in the performance and costs of interventional techniques. Read More

Interventional techniques: evidence-based practice guidelines in the management of chronic spinal pain.

Pain Physician 2007 Jan;10(1):7-111

American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, Paducah, KY 42001, USA.

Background: The evidence-based practice guidelines for the management of chronic spinal pain with interventional techniques were developed to provide recommendations to clinicians in the United States.

Objective: To develop evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for interventional techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic spinal pain, utilizing all types of evidence and to apply an evidence-based approach, with broad representation by specialists from academic and clinical practices.

Design: Study design consisted of formulation of essentials of guidelines and a series of potential evidence linkages representing conclusions and statements about relationships between clinical interventions and outcomes. Read More

Complications during anterior surgery of the lumbar spine: an anatomically based study and review.

Neurosurg Focus 1999 Dec;7(6):e9

Procedures involving anterior surgical decompression and fusion are being performed with increasing frequency for the treatment of a variety of pathological processes of the spine including trauma, deformity, infection, degenerative disease, failed-back syndrome, discogenic pain, metastases, and primary spinal neoplasms. Because these operations involve anatomy that is often unfamiliar to many neurological and orthopedic surgeons, a significant proportion of the associated complications are not related to the actual decompressive or fusion procedure but instead to the actual exposure itself. To understand the nature of these injuries, a detailed anatomical study and dissection was undertaken in six cadaveric specimens. Read More

Interventional techniques in the management of chronic spinal pain: evidence-based practice guidelines.

Pain Physician 2005 Jan;8(1):1-47

Department of Anesthesiology, University Hospitals of Cleveland Case School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio 44106, USA.

Background: The lifetime prevalence of spinal pain has been reported as 54% to 80%, with as many as 60% of patients continuing to have chronic pain five years or longer after the initial episode. Spinal pain is associated with significant economic, societal, and health impact. Available evidence documents a wide degree of variance in the definition and the practice of interventional pain management. Read More

Nonendoscopic Nd-YAG 1064 nm PLDN in the treatment of thoracic discogenic pain syndromes.

J Clin Laser Med Surg 2003 Apr;21(2):61-6

Novamed Hospital, Munich, Germany.

Objective: The purpose of the present study was to discover new minimal invasive treatments of discogenic thoracic pain caused by protrusions or extrusions using the promising method of nonendoscopic Nd-YAG 1064 nm PLDN in the lumbar and cervical regions. Because early symptoms of chronic thoracic discogenic pain syndromes have not been characterized, interventional therapy is usually started late and involves a high complication rate.

Materials And Methods: A prospective controlled clinical study was undertaken by neurologists using Nd-YAG 1064 nm PLDN to treat 42 patients with thoracic disc protrusions and extrusions. Read More
