Lumbar Sympathetic Block and Neurolysis
TLDR
Approaches to the lumbar sympathetic block include the paramedian (classic Mandl’s) approach, the lateral approach, and transdiscal and the paradiscal extraforaminal techniques. Expand
Paradiscal extraforaminal technique for lumbar sympathetic block: report of a proposed new technique utilizing a cadaver study.
TLDR
The extraforaminal technique of lumbar sympathetic block is superior to the paramedian approach considering that there should be a reduced chance of passing through viscera and a lower incidence of genitofemoral neuralgia. Expand
