Younghoon Jeon, Saeyoung Kim
BACKGROUND: Transforaminal epidural injection (TFEI) with local anesthetics and steroids are effective in treating spinal radicular pain. However, inadvertent intravascular injection can lead to severe neurologic complications. To reduce complications of intravascular injection, use of imaging modality, such as real-time fluoroscopy (RTF) or digital subtraction angiography (DSA), has been recommended. DSA is an imaging technique that can clearly visualize the blood vessels from surrounding bones or dense soft tissues by subtracting the pre-contrast image from the image after injecting contrast medium...

Sangbong Ko, Changhyuk Choi, Sungguk Kim, Seungbum Chae, Wonkee Choi, Jaebum Kwon
BACKGROUND: Until now, few studies had investigated the neuropathic pain component in patients with a rotator cuff tear (RCT). OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to identify the neuropathic pain component in patients with RCT and to determine the factors correlated with neuropathic pain in patients with RCT. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, cohort, prognostic study. SETTING: Study patients who required arthroscopic rotator cuff repair were analyzed in a hospital setting...

Amber R Watson, Ali Roberts
BACKGROUND: Levorphanol is a long-acting opioid analgesic that is an optical isomer of dextrorphan, a metabolite of the over-the-counter cough suppressant dextromethorphan. Providers prescribing levorphanol for pain management may need to assess compliance through urine drug testing, as this agent is subject to abuse. Therefore, it is important to differentiate between dextromethorphan and levorphanol ingestion. OBJECTIVES: This article is the first to report urine concentrations of levorphanol/dextrorphan and 3-hydroxymorphinan in human urine and assesses the need for an enantiomeric analysis to distinguish between dextromethorphan and levorphanol ingestion...

Enyi Zhong, Qinghao Zhao, Benchao Shi, Yushan Xie, Zihai Ding, Hai Lv, Shizhen Zhong, Wenhua Huang
BACKGROUND: The extraforaminal ligaments between the L1-L5 lumbar spinal nerves and the tissues surrounding the intervertebral foramina (IVF) have been well studied. However, little research has been performed to describe the local anatomy of the entrance zones at the L1-L5 level. Detailed anatomic studies of the intraforaminal ligaments (IFLs) in the entrance zones at the L1-L5 levels have not been performed. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to identify and describe the IFLs in the entrance zones of the L1-L5 IVF and to determine their possible clinical significance...

Jiunn-Horng Chen, Shih-Chi Wu, Chih-Hsin Muo, Chia-Hung Kao, Chun-Hung Tseng, Chon-Haw Tsai
BACKGROUND: Inflammation may trigger migraine development through neurovascular reactions in the brain. Most of the migraine patients, particularly the younger ones, do not have any risk factors for this disease. Hence, we assessed whether chronic osteomyelitis (COM), a chronic inflammatory disease, increases the risk of migraine. OBJECTIVE: We aim to evaluate the risk of migraine among female and middle-age COM patients with a large patient sample. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in this study...

BACKGROUND: Sleep loss in infants may have a negative effect on the functional and structural development of the nociceptive system. We tested the hypothesis that neonatal sleep restriction induces a long-term increase of pain-related behaviors in mice and that this hypersensitivity occurs due to changes in the neuronal activity of nociceptive pathways. OBJECTIVES: We aim to investigate the effects of sleep loss in neonatal mice on pain behaviors of adolescent and adult mice in a sex-dependent manner...

Stanley J Antolak, Christopher M Antolak
BACKGROUND: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in men is rarely considered to have a neurogenic (neuropathic) basis. Separation of neurogenic from non-neurogenic pain is possible using clinical examination and neurophysiologic tests. A definite diagnosis of neuropathic pain can be made. OBJECTIVES: We aim to demonstrate that definite pudendal neuropathic abnormalities can be supported by a quantitative sensory test (QST) called the warm temperature threshold detection (WDT) test in men with CPP...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic discectomy (PED) includes 2 main procedures: percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) and percutaneous endoscopic interlaminar discectomy (PEID), both of which are minimally invasive surgical procedures that effectively deal with lumbar degenerative disorders. Because of the challenging learning curve for the surgeon and the individual characteristics of each patient, preventing and avoiding complications is difficult. The most common complications, such as nucleus pulposus omission, nerve root injury, dural tear, visceral injury, nerve root induced hyperalgesia or burning-like nerve root pain, postoperative dysesthesia, posterior neck pain, and surgical site infection, are difficult to avoid; however, more focus on these issues perioperatively may be in order...

BACKGROUND: The most common surgical procedure for breast cancer is the modified radical mastectomy (MRM), but it is associated with significant postoperative pain. Regional anesthesia can reduce the stress response associated with surgical trauma. OBJECTIVES: Our aim is to explore the efficacy of 1 µg/kg dexmedetomedine added to an ultrasound (US)-modified pectoral (Pecs) block on postoperative pain and stress response in patients undergoing MRM. STUDY DESIGN: A randomized, double-blind, prospective study...

BACKGROUND: Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) is increasingly used in clinical practice, especially in neuropathic pain disorders. Although PRF is not new to clinical use, there are significant gaps in knowledge regarding its effectiveness. OBJECTIVES: The current study was conducted to evaluate the effect of duration of application of PRF on its analgesic efficacy in improvement of neuropathic pain. STUDY DESIGN: A randomized experimental trial...

BACKGROUND: Nowadays, pain and disability due to chronic knee arthritis is a very common problem in middle aged people. A lot of modalities for management are available, including conservative analgesics and up to surgical interventions. Radiofrequency ablation of genicular nerves is assumed to be an effective less invasive and safe pain alleviation modality. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of fluoroscopic guided radiofrequency neurotomy of the genicular nerves for alleviation of chronic pain and improvement of function in patients with knee osteoarthritis...

BACKGROUND: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) represents a group of poorly understood disorders that are often refractory to conventional treatment. Referral to pain management typically occurs later in the continuum of care; as such, many of the injections and nerve blocks commonly prescribed for such patients are potentially limited in efficacy. While neuromodulation is conventionally considered the next algorithmic step in the treatment of chronic pain after injections fail, there is a common perception that neuromodulation is largely ineffective for CPP conditions...
