The techniques within the field of interventional pain management continues to expand and provide a critical resource for patients suffering from a wide range of conditions. The collaboration of Anaesthesiology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has provided a rich diversity of viewpoints and orientation to further develop our options. Although the comprehensive pain management model with a multidisciplinary approach remains a gold standard, much of the emphasis noted in the ortho-neurologic setting, especially among Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation practitioners, has been directed towards the spine.

This article provides an update of recent practice trends in neuraxial labor analgesia. It reviews available evidence regarding management of labor pain in obstetric patients with COVID-19, serious adverse events in obstetric anesthesia to help inform risk/benefit decisions, and increasingly popular neuraxial labor analgesia techniques and adjuvants. State-of-the-art modes of epidural drug delivery are also discussed.Recent FindingsThere has recently been a focus on several considerations specific to obstetric anesthesia, such as anesthetic management of obstetric patients with COVID-19, platelet thresholds for the safe pe...

AbstractPurposeAllopurinol is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme xanthine oxidase used primarily in the treatment of hyperuricemia and gout. The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of preanesthetic allopurinol versus placebo on postoperative pain and anxiety in patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy.MethodsThis is a prospective, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. We investigated 54 patients scheduled to undergo elective abdominal hysterectomy. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either oral allopurinol 300  mg (n = 27) or placebo (n =&thinsp...

CONCLUSIONS The analgesic regimen for complex spine surgery should include pre-operative or intra-operative paracetamol and COX-2 specific inhibitors or NSAIDs, continued postoperatively with opioids used as rescue analgesics. Other recommendations are intra-operative ketamine and epidural analgesia using local anaesthetics with or without opioids. Although there is procedure-specific evidence in favour of intra-operative methadone, it is not recommended as it was compared with shorter-acting opioids and due to its limited safety profile. Furthermore, the methadone studies did not use non-opioid analgesics, which shoul...

The role of telemedicine in the evaluation and treatment of patients with spinal disorders is rapidly expanding. Health systems are working to understand the potential of this modality and optimally leverage telemedicine for spine service line care delivery. Specifically, the ability of pain management specialists (eg, physiatry and anesthesia) to accurately diagnose and plan appropriate interventional spine procedures based on virtual visits remains to be established.
