We appreciate Monteset al.’s interest in our article. In their 2015 Anesthesiology article, the authors analyzed data from 2,929 patients who were candidates for inguinal hernia repair (men), hysterectomy (women), or thoracotomy (men) under general, regional, or local anesthesia with sedation. Four hundred and two patients (all male) underwent thoracotomy.1 Approximately 4.4 months after surgery, 37.6% of the thoracotomy patients had chronic postsurgical pain. We think the size of the study —nearly 3,000 patients enrolled—is quite remarkable.

To the Editor Chronic low back pain is a symptom that may originate from a variety of lumbosacral structures. Thus, identifying the correct anatomic source of pain is essential for selecting the appropriate treatment. Numerous studies including, but not limited to, investigations by MacVicar et al and Dreyfuss et al have demonstrated excellent clinical outcomes for radiofrequency denervation when rigorous selection criteria were applied to establish the correct diagnosis and specific procedural technique is used.

In Reply Dr Vorobeychik and colleagues suggest that numerous studies demonstrate excellent clinical outcomes for radiofrequency denervation. A Cochrane review shows low- to very low –quality evidence for the studied procedures. Providing higher-quality evidence was the main reason for initiating the Mint trials.
