A randomized control study to assess the efficacy of the sphenopalatine ganglion block in patients with post dural puncture headache

SPG block is an effective alternative in managing patients with PDPH and the need for epidural blood patch is greatly reduced using SPG block, an evolving treatment modality for PDPh.

Regional Anesthesia For Postdural Puncture Headache (PDPH): A New Solution For An Old Problem? A Systemic Review.

Treatment of PDPH with peripheral nerve blocks seems to be a minimal invasive, easy and effective method, which can offer to patients when conservative management is ineffective, as not all cases require EBP for successful treatment.

Toward precision regional anesthesia: is the PENG block appropriate for all hip fracture surgeries?

In conclusion, nasal stimulationinduced lacrimation served as a measure of activation of the trigeminal autonomic reflex and the parasympathetic output in recent trials investigating the effects of vagal nerve stimulation, and it is necessary to differentiate between a single nasal spray and leaving a cottontipped applicator into the nose for a prolonged period of time, which may lead to desensitization and modulation of the knots.

A greater number of patients experienced a quicker onset of headache relief, without any new complications, from treatment with SPGB versus EBP, and believe that SPGB is a safe, inexpensive, and well-tolerated treatment.

Nerve Stimulator‐Guided Occipital Nerve Blockade for Postdural Puncture Headache

A prospective, randomized, single‐blinded comparison between bilateral occipital blockade and conventional expectant therapy in adults suffering from postdural puncture headache found the studied method is superior to expectant conservative therapy in the treatment of patients suffering from PDPH.

[Sphenopalatine ganglion block for treatment of post-dural puncture headache].

Transnasal sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block is discussed: a new, simple and minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of post-dural puncture headache by applying local anaesthesia through the patient's nose to the nasopharynx.
