Conclusions: CRF denervation of the SIJ can safely elicit pain and disability relief, and reduce opioid use, regardless of intervention success. Future studies may support CRF denervation as a dependable therapy to alleviate opioid use in patients with SIJ-derived LBP and show that opioid use measurements can be a surrogate indicator of pain.

Authors: Sato KL, Sanada LS, Silva MDD, Okubo R, Sluka KA Abstract Background: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), manual acupuncture (MA), and spinal cord stimulation (SCS) are used to treat a variety of pain conditions. These non-pharmacological treatments are often thought to work through similar mechanisms, and thus should have similar effects for different types of pain. However, it is unclear if each of these treatments work equally well on each type of pain condition. The purpose of this study was to compared the effects of TENS, MA, and SCS on neuropathic, inflammatory, and non-inflammatory ...

Authors: Isagulyan E, Slavin K, Konovalov N, Dorochov E, Tomsky A, Dekopov A, Makashova E, Isagulyan D, Genov P Abstract Chronic severe pain results in a detrimental effect on the patient's quality of life. Such patients have to take a large number of medications, including opioids, often without satisfactory effect, sometimes leading to medication abuse and the pain worsening. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is one of the most effective technologies that, unlike other interventional pain treatment methods, achieves long-term results in patients suffering from chronic neuropathic pain. The first described mode of SCS...

Reddy RavikanthJournal of Craniovertebral Junction and Spine 2020 11(1):4-8 This review article describes the various image guided interventional techniques used for treating chronic backache attributed to disc related pathologies. With the aim of minimum invasion and maximum relief, these procedures comprise predominantly of annuloplasty and disc decompression via different mechanisms. Newer therapies are discussed in this review article with the objective of restoring disc height and its biomechanical function by substitution of biochemical constituents, regeneration of cartilaginous end plate and finally artificial disc implantation.

AbstractBackgroundEnhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is the object of numerous publications in various surgical fields. Still, its value in spine surgery is not as recognized as it is in other surgical domains. Our aim was to report neurosurgeons ’ opinions about ERAS in spine surgery.MethodsFrom December 2019 to January 2020, members of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies were asked to complete an online questionnaire regarding ERAS in spine surgery.ResultsN = 234 participants responded to the survey (60% spine neurosurgeons; 22.6% working in private practice). Thirty-two percent re...

ConclusionTrunk stabilization differs between LBP patients and controls, with the same perturbations causing less trunk movement in patients, due to stronger reflexes. We interpret these changes as reflecting protective behavior.Graphic abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Anatomic course of medial branches in the thoracic spine is significantly different. Cooled RFA (CRFA) is a newer technique that can create a larger spherical lesion with a potential to compensate for the anatomic variability of the medial branches in the thoracic spine. Our retrospective study aimed to investigate the efficacy and the adverse effects of the CRFA in the treatment of thoracic facet-related pain. For this retrospective study, we evaluated 40 CRFA performed on 23 patients. The patients with diagnosis of thoracic facet joint-related pain underwent CRFA. Pain scores in numeric rating scale (NRS) were recorded ...
