BACKGROUND: Childbirth may cause the most severe pain some women experience in their lifetime. Epidural analgesia is an effective form of pain relief during labour and is considered to be the reference standard. Traditionally epidural analgesia has been delivered as a continuous infusion via a catheter in the epidural space, with or without the ability for the patient to supplement the analgesia received by activating a programmable pump to deliver additional top-up doses, known as patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA)...

Background: Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a rare complication of spinal or epidural anesthesia. It is attributed to direct mechanical injury to the spinal roots of the cauda equina that may result in saddle anesthesia and paraplegia with bowel and bladder dysfunction. Case Description: The first patient underwent a hip replacement and received 5 mL of 1% lidocaine epidural anesthesia. Postoperatively, when the patient developed an acute CES, the lumbar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan demonstrated clumping/posterior displacement of nerve roots of the cauda equina consistent with adhesive arachnoiditis attributed to the patient's previous L4-L5 lumbar decompression/fusion...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: As healthcare transitions to value-based models, there has been an increased focus on patient factors that can influence peri- and post-operative adverse events, resource use, and costs. Many studies have reported risk factors for systemic complications after cervical fusion, but none have studied chronic opioid therapy (COT) as a risk factor. PURPOSE: To answer the following questions from a large cohort of patients who underwent primary cervical fusion for degenerative pathology: (1) What is the patient profile associated with pre-operative COT? (2) Is pre-operative COT a risk factor for 90-day systemic complications, emergency department (ED) visits, readmission, and one-year adverse events? (3) What are the risk factors and one-year adverse events related to long-term post-operative opioid use? and (4) How much did payers reimburse for management of complications and adverse events? STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of Humana commercial insurance data (2007-Q3 2015)...

Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are commonly used in the management of chronic lower back and leg pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the short- and long-term electromyographic and clinical outcome of patients with chronic radicular pain after ESIs. This prospective, open-label study, included patients with chronic radicular pain due to disc herniation or spinal stenosis, who underwent interlaminar, fluoroscopy-guided ESIs. Patients were assessed before ESIs, as well as after 6 and 12 months, clinically (VAS 0-10, BPI, DN4, Rolland Morris, DASS, STAI) and electromyographically for the improvement of spontaneous activity (SA) and of motor unit recruitment/interference pattern (IP/MUR)...

Background: The thoracic transforaminal epidural block (TTFEB) is usually performed to treat herpes zoster or postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). Especially, multiple segmental involvements and approximate contrast medium spread range, according to volume, help to choose the proper drug volume in the transforaminal epidural block. This study investigated the contrast medium spread patterns of 1-ml to 3-ml TTFEBs. Methods: A total of 26 patients with herpes zoster or PHN were enrolled in this study...

The Epidural blood patch is considered the gold standard for managing postdural puncture headache when supportive measures fail. However, it is a procedure which can lead to another inadvertent dural puncture. Other potential adverse events that could occur during a blood patch are meningitis, neurological deficits, and unconsciousness. The bilateral greater occipital nerve block has been used for treating chronic headaches in patients with PDPH with a single injection. This minimally invasive, simple procedure can be considered for patients early, along with other supportive treatment, and an epidural blood patch can be avoided...
