BACKGROUND: Prior literatures have shown inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) could increase fibromyalgia (FM) risk. However, studies about gender and age distributions of FM risk among patients with IBD are rare. With large study samples, this study aimed to evaluate the FM risk among IBD patients with different gender and different age. OBJECTIVE: We aim to estimate the FM risk among male and younger IBD patients with a large patient sample. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study was arranged in this research...

BACKGROUND: Cebranopadol is a potent, first-in-class analgesic with a novel mechanistic approach combining nociceptin/orphanin FQ peptide (NOP) and opioid peptide receptor agonism. OBJECTIVE: We aim to evaluate, for the first time, the analgesic efficacy, safety, and tolerability of cebranopadol in patients suffering from moderate to severe acute pain following bunionectomy. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a phase IIa, randomized, multi-center, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo- and active-controlled, parallel group clinical trial...

Yan-Bin Liu, Yin Wang, Zi-Qiang Chen, Jun Li, Wei Chen, Chuan-Feng Wang, Qiang Fu
BACKGROUND: The use of percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is increasing in the treatment of lumbar disc herniations (LDH). Nerve and vessel injury may happen during the establishment of the transforaminal working channel. Also, there is usually exposure to intraop radiation when the C-arm is used to help establish the location of the transforaminal working channel. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy and safety of the volume navigation technique for guiding transforaminal puncture in cadaver and clinical patient treatment...

BACKGROUND: Hypersensitivity of the central nervous system to environmental and chemical stimuli is a clinical feature of central sensitization mechanisms that can be assessed with the central sensitization inventory (CSI). OBJECTIVE: The aim was to determine prevalence rate of this feature and explore the treatment-, patient-, pain-, and psychosocial-related variables associated with the degree of self-reported signs of central sensitization, assessed with the CSI (0-100), in breast cancer survivors at long-term...

BACKGROUND: Chronic back pain is a prevalent disease and has a high impact in daily life. Implantable devices (IDs) for chronic pain management include spinal cord stimulation (SCS) systems and intrathecal drug delivery (ITDD) pumps. The number of ITDD implants have increased exponentially in the last decade. The number of complications, such as infections, are also more prevalent. Infection management guidelines are needed to standarize our clinical practice and define protocols of explantation...

BACKGROUND: Recently, clinicians have been applying pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) stimulation on various peripheral nerves to manage patients' peripheral neuropathic pain. OBJECTIVES: To review the literature on the use and efficacy of PRF for controlling peripheral neuropathic pain. STUDY DESIGN: This is a narrative review of relevant articles on the effectiveness of PRF for peripheral neuropathic pain. METHODS: A PubMed search was conducted for papers published from January 1, 1980 to August 31, 2017 that used PRF to treat peripheral neuropathic pain...

BACKGROUND: Navigated percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy (PECD) is a promising minimally invasive surgery for treating cervical spondylotic radiculopathy. PECD has been described as a safe, effective, and minimally invasive method for patients with radiculopathy, but it comes with a steep learning curve. Due to the limited field of vision, anatomic localization is difficult for surgeons until using the O-arm based navigation. In this study, patients with radiculopathy due to foraminal disc herniation or foraminal stenosis in the lower cervical spine underwent the single level full endoscopic posterior cervical foraminotomy procedure assisted by O-arm-based navigation...

BACKGROUND: Chronic pain is a major public health problem resulting in physical and emotional pain for individuals and families, loss of productivity, and an annual cost of billions of dollars. The lack of objective measures available to aid in diagnosis and evaluation of therapies for chronic pain continues to be a challenge for the clinician. OBJECTIVES: Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an imaging technique that can establish regional areas of interest and examine synchronous neuronal activity in functionally related but anatomically distinct regions of the brain, known as functional connectivity...

BACKGROUND: Neural blockade of the cervical medial branches is a validated procedure in the diagnosis and treatment of cervical zygapophyseal joint pain. Fluoroscopic visualization of the lower cervical medial branch target zones (CMBTZs) in lateral view is sometimes challenging or not possible due to the patient's shoulders obscuring the target. Large shoulders and short necks often exacerbate the problem. Clear visualization is critical to accuracy and safety. OBJECTIVE: We aim to describe a method for optimal fluoroscopic visualization of the lower CMBTZs using a modified swimmer's view...

BACKGROUND: The management of glossopharyngeal neuralgia due to oropharyngeal carcinoma is particularly difficult because of rich innervations of the area, erosive nature of neoplasm and dynamic pain evoked by the functional movements like swallowing and chewing. Few case reports have shown the efficacy of pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) treatment in primary and secondary glossopharyngeal neuralgia in non-cancer patients. However, the efficacy of PRF ablation of the glossopharyngeal nerve in oral cancer patients is not known...

BACKGROUND: Among the various causes of vertigo, the so-called cervicogenic vertigo (CV) has been the most controversial. However, perturbations of proprioceptive signals and abnormal activity of the cervical afferents can induce vertigo. Medial branch blocks (MBBs) are a diagnostic tool designed to test whether a patient's neck pain is mediated by one or more of the medial branches of the dorsal rami of the spinal nerve. It is unknown whether MBBs are also suitable for testing symptoms other than pain...

BACKGROUND: Chronic hip joint pain is a common condition with an estimated prevalence of 7% in men and 10% in women, in a population sample aged over 45. Conservative treatment can include physical therapy, weight loss, a variety of pharmacologic agents ranging from nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) to opioids, and intraarticular injections with various substances. Definitive treatment of hip pain, however, has primarily centered on hip arthroplasty. OBJECTIVE: We describe a novel anterior approach to cooled radiofrequency (RF) hip denervation under combined ultrasound (US) and fluoroscopy guidance to avoid the neurovascular femoral bundle and reach proper landmarks...

Won-Joong Kim, Hwa-Yong Shin, Seung Hee Yoo, Hahck Soo Park
BACKGROUND: The effect of transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFESI) appears to be influenced by the volume of the injected material because there is a positive correlation between injection volume and extent of pain relief. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to examine how many vertebral segments are covered by the subpedicular (SP) approach and the retrodiscal (RD) approach and to compare the clinical outcomes of the 2 approaches in TFESI with high-volume injectates...

Chun-Jing He, Guo-Dong Liu
BACKGROUND: Bone cement leakage in patients with vertebral fracture limits the use of percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) and percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP). Finding a method to reduce bone cement leakage is clinically rather important. OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy and safety of bone-filling mesh containers (BFMCS) and simple percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. STUDY DESIGN: A randomized controlled clinical study discussing the effect of 3 methods in the treatment of vertebral fractures...

BACKGROUND: Sacroiliac intraarticular injection using the upper one-third joint technique is recommended for injections that are difficult with the lower one-third joint technique. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the success rate of intraarticular sacroiliac joint (SIJ) injections using the upper and lower one-third joint techniques. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective randomized noninferiority study. SETTING: An interventional pain-management practice in a university hospital...
