ZusammenfassungFragestellung. Wie groß ist die Effizienz der CT-gesteuerten Radiofrequenz- (RF-)Thermokoagulation der zervikalen Zygapophysialgelenke bei chronischer nichtradikulärer zervikaler Schmerzsymptomatik unter posteriorem Zugang? Material und Methode. Bei 46 Patienten wurde unter CT-Steuerung eine isolierte 23-Gauge-Punktionskanüle von posterior am Facettengelenk platziert. Es wurden die dorsalen und lateralen kapsulären Nervenendigungen sowie die medialen und lateralen Äste der Rami… Expand
Incidence of Cervicogenic Headache Following Lower Cervical Radiofrequency Neurotomy.
A retrospective review of all patients seen over 2 years in an academic pain clinic found a 13.6% incidence of cervicogenic headache following cervical radiofrequency neurotomy at levels C3-C7, which supports the possibility of the unmasking phenomenon following the procedure. Expand


Percutaneous radiofrequency neurotomy in the treatment of cervical zygapophysial joint pain: a caution.
Given the high technical failure rate of third occipital neurotomy, it is recommended that this procedure be abandoned until the technical problems can be overcome. Expand
Long-term follow-up of patients treated with cervical radiofrequency neurotomy for chronic neck pain.
Radiofrequency neurotomy provides clinically significant and satisfying periods of freedom from pain, and its effects can be reinstated if pain recurs if it is reinstated by a repeat procedure. Expand
On the nature of neck pain, discography and cervical zygapophysial joint blocks
The investigation of neck pain by discography alone or by zygapophysial blocks alone constitutes an inadequate approach to neck pain which fails to identify the majority of patients whose symptoms stem from multiple elements in the 3‐joint complexes of the neck. Expand
The Relative Contributions of the Disc and Zygapophyseal Joint in Chronic Low Back Pain
In patients with chronic low back pain, the combination of discogenic pain and zygapophyseal joint pain is uncommon, and both procedures have both procedures been performed. Expand
A controlled trial of corticosteroid injections into facet joints for chronic low back pain.
It is concluded that injecting methylprednisolone acetate into the facet joints is of little value in the treatment of patients with chronic low back pain. Expand
The management of chronic spinal pain by blockades: a review
This review of the use of blockades in the diagnosis and symptomatic treatment of spinal pain syndromes is based on increasing knowledge of the innervation of the spine as their rationale and problems in making a correct diagnosis are discussed. Expand
Technical limitations to the efficacy of radiofrequency neurotomy for spinal pain.
Prompted by clinical failures of percutaneous radiofrequency neurotomy in the treatment of back pain and neck pain, we performed a study to determine the shape and size of lesions made byExpand
Facet denervation in the management of back and sciatic pain.
Radiofrequency facet denervation suggests that a majority of patients seem to have pain referred from distress of the facet joints or the sacro-iliac joints, and is proposed as a safe alternative to either chemonucleolysis or surgery. Expand
The cervical zygapophysial joints as a source of neck pain.
The high yield of positive responders in this study probably reflects the propensity of patients with zygapophysial joint syndromes to gravitate to a pain clinic when this condition is not recognised in conventional clinical practice. Expand
Atlanto‐Occipital and Lateral Atlanto‐Axial Joint Pain Patterns
This study confirms the nociceptive ability of these cervical synovial joints as demonstrated by referred pain induced via isolated intra-articular joint injections in normal subjects. Expand
