A Novel Tool for the Assessment of Pain: Validation in Low Back Pain
Joachim Scholz and colleagues develop and validate an assessment tool that distinguishes between radicular and axial low back pain.
Systematic review of therapeutic lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injections.
TLDR
The indicated evidence for transforaminal lumbar epidural steroid injections is level II-1 for short-term relief and Level II-2 for long-term improvement in the management of lumbr nerve root and low back pain. Expand
An update of comprehensive evidence-based guidelines for interventional techniques in chronic spinal pain. Part II: guidance and recommendations.
TLDR
Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for interventional techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic spinal pain are developed to help patients with or without anticoagulant therapy to discontinue or normalize INR. Expand
Epidural steroids in the management of chronic spinal pain: a systematic review.
TLDR
There is moderate evidence for interlaminar epidurals in the cervical spine and limited evidence in the lumbar spine for long-term relief in managing chronic pain of lumbr radiculopathy and postlumbar laminectomy syndrome. Expand
Opioid guidelines in the management of chronic non-cancer pain.
TLDR
These guidelines evaluated the evidence for the use of opioids in the management of chronic non-cancer pain and recommendations for management and are based on the best available scientific evidence. Expand
Comprehensive evidence-based guidelines for interventional techniques in the management of chronic spinal pain.
TLDR
These guidelines include the evaluation of evidence for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in managing chronic spinal pain and recommendations for managing spinal pain are described here to provide recommendations for clinicians. Expand
Lumbar interlaminar epidural injections in managing chronic low back and lower extremity pain: a systematic review.
TLDR
The evidence based on this systematic review is limited for blind interlaminar epidurals in managing all types of pain except for short-term relief of pain secondary to disc herniation and radiculitis. Expand
American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) guidelines for responsible opioid prescribing in chronic non-cancer pain: Part 2--guidance.
TLDR
A robust agreement which is followed by all parties is essential in initiating and maintaining opioid therapy as such agreements reduce overuse, misuse, abuse, and diversion. Expand
Responsible, Safe, and Effective Prescription of Opioids for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain: American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) Guidelines.
TLDR
These guidelines are intended to provide a systematic and standardized approach to this complex and difficult arena of practice, while recognizing that every clinical situation is unique. Expand
Systematic review of caudal epidural injections in the management of chronic low back pain.
TLDR
A systematic review of caudal epidural injections with or without steroids in managing chronic pain secondary to lumbar disc herniation or radiculitis, post-lumbar laminectomy syndrome, spinal stenosis, and chronic discogenic pain showed Level I evidence for relief of chronic pain. Expand
