Sacrococcygeal pain syndromes: diagnosis and treatment.
TLDR
A method for defining the anatomic basis for sacrococcygeal pain is presented as well as a discussion of the relevant anatomy and differential diagnosis of sacroccysgodynia.
Idiopathic coccygodynia. Analysis of fifty-one operative cases and a radiographic study of the normal coccyx.
TLDR
The normal radiographic anatomy of the coccyx was studied in 120 asymptomatic subjects and a retrospective review of the results in fifty-one patients who had had a partial or total coccygectomy for idiopathic coccygodynia during a twenty-year period, finding most subjects had a Type-I configuration.
EXCISION OF THE COCCYX FOR COCCYDYNIA
TLDR
Excision of the coccyx is certainly a useful operation and should not be discarded, and if more care were taken to eliminate the markedly psychoneurotic patients the worthwhile results of operation could probably be increased even above 90 per cent.
The influence of etiology on the results of coccygectomy.
TLDR
The results of coccygectomy for coccygodynia seem not to have been correlated with etiologic factors and were investigated in 48 cases with an average follow-up period of seven years.
