Interventional management for chronic pain

Dessy R


Abstract.  Chronic  pain is  a common clinical  condition affecting the quality of life  of the population.  This article aims  to review the interventional   options for chronic  pain based on literature researches.   Multiple searches   using Medline   were carried  out  and additional   searches  were  made using   reference lists  of published papers and book chapters.   The article discussed  procedures ranging from selective nerve root or zygapophyseal   (facet)  joint   block   with   local   anaesthetics     to   irreversible   neurodestruction   with radiofrequency energy or neurolytic   agents and  epidural   injection.   Other techniques   include  intraspinal delivery  of  analgesics.   ·  There  is  evidence  that   these  interventional    procedures    are  valuable    both                                           diagnostically   and therapeutically.   (JKS 2009; 3:139-144)

Key words: spinal pain, neurophathicpain, intervention
