BACKGROUND Chronic hip joint pain is a common condition with an estimated prevalence of 7% in men and 10% in women, in a population sample aged over 45. Conservative treatment can include physical therapy, weight loss, a variety of pharmacologic agents ranging from nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) to opioids, and intraarticular injections with various substances. Definitive treatment of hip pain, however, has primarily centered on hip arthroplasty. OBJECTIVE We describe a novel…

Selective Sensory Denervation by Means of Radiofrequency (RF) Ablation: a Novel Non-surgical Treatment Approach in Chronic Joint Pain: a Narrative Review on Its Application on Knee Hip and Shoulder

TLDR
The purpose of this review is to discuss the efficacy of radiofrequency denervation of the hip, knee, and shoulder and to define its role in the management of chronic joint pain.

A Review of Current Denervation Techniques for Chronic Hip Pain: Anatomical and Technical Considerations

TLDR
Evidence for analgesic benefits, improvement in function, and a low incidence of adverse effects of RF ablation of sensory innervation to the hip joint is indicated.

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the shoulder and hip is a leading cause of physical disability and mental distress. Traditional nonsurgical management alone is often unable to completely address the

Cooled radiofrequency ablation for pain related to Perthes’ disease: a novel application

TLDR
This is the first case report describing the successful use of CRFA in the non-surgical management of Perthes’ disease-related osteoarthritic hip pain in a man in his 40s.

Latest Evidence-Based Application for Radiofrequency Neurotomy (LEARN): Best Practice Guidelines from the American Society of Pain and Neuroscience (ASPN)

TLDR
A multidisciplinary work group was formed tasked to examine the latest evidence-based medicine for the various applications of RFN, including cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine; posterior sacroiliac joint pain; hip and knee joints; and occipital neuralgia.

CT-Guided Cooled Radiofrequency Denervation for Chronic Arthritis Pain of the Hip and Shoulder.

TLDR
The authors provide the background of which nerves are targeted for hip and shoulder denervation and the normal CT appearance of these blocks, and the use of CT guidance to provide safe, fast, and effective targeting of the target nerves.

Review of Extraosseous Applications of Thermal Ablation in the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Large Joint Osteoarthritis.

TLDR
Cooled radiofrequency ablation (CRFA) has arisen as a treatment modality in the setting of moderate to severe OA among patients refractory to conservative management, generally showing greater efficacy compared with other existing strategies.

Treatment of pain syndrome after total hip arthroplasty associated with femora nerve entrapment

TLDR
In patients in the postoperative period of total hip replacement, pain syndrome is associated with the formation of compression-ischemic neuropathy of the femoral nerve from the side of the operated joint, which is due to a decrease in thetone of the rectus femoris muscle and a stable pathological tone of the ilio-lumbar muscle on the operated side.

Percutaneous Radiofrequency Hip Joint Denervation

TLDR
Percutaneous partial hip joint sensory denervation has become a notable option as it can provide acceptable rates of pain relief with minimal surgical aggressiveness and three modalities to perform it: thermal, cooled and pulsed radiofrequency.

Hip and Knee Joint Denervation

TLDR
The current understanding of the anatomy of the articular branches, sonoanatomy, and the suggested techniques for the hip and knee RFA was summarized.

Percutaneous Radiofrequency Lesioning of Sensory Branches of the Obturator and Femoral Nerves for the Treatment of Hip Joint Pain

TLDR
Percutaneous radiofrequency lesioning of sensory branches of the obturator and femoral nerves is an alternative treatment in patients with hip joint pain, especially in those where operation is not applicable.

TLDR
Hip joint radiofrequency denervation is a promising avenue for adjunctive treatment of hip pain and future clinical studies should consider pain, functional, and economic outcomes in their design.
