eural therapy — A review of the therapeutic use of local anesthetics

  title={eural therapy — A review of the therapeutic use of local anesthetics},
  author={tefan Weinschenka},
Neural therapy, or therapeutic local anesthesia (TLA), is the diagnostic and therapeutic use of local anesthetics. This review summarizes the scientific and clinical evidence, indications, methods of application, and possible future research. In the literature, there is a gap between the multitude of data supporting a number of different molecular effects and the few clinical trials that are available. The available clinical studies and case reports, however, show effectiveness in acute and…

Effects of Systemic Administration of a Local Anesthetic on Pain in Acute Pancreatitis: A Randomized Clinical Trial
The hypothesis that systemic administration of local anesthetics might improve pain and accelerate clinical recovery in acute pancreatitis is supported, and procaine treatment was associated with a stronger decrease in pain than placebo.
Anti‐inflammatory properties of local anesthetics and their present and potential clinical implications
The potent anti‐inflammatory properties of local anesthetics, superior in several aspects to traditional anti-inflammatory agents of the NSAID and steroid groups and with fewer side‐effects, has prompted clinicians to introduce them in the treatment of various inflammation‐related conditions and diseases.
[Urodynamic evaluation of the effect of neural therapy in motor and sensory urgency].
The paraurethral injection of a local anaesthetic is a simple and effective treatment in motor and sensory urgency and the mean bladder volume at the first sensation to void increased significantly after neural therapy; other urodynamic parameters were not affected by neural therapy.
["Alternative" effects of local anesthetic agents].
Different aspects of local anesthetic effects that cannot be explained purely by a sodium channel blockade are summarized, e.g. the inhibition of pathological changes such as excessive stimulation of the inflammatory system, without compromising the host defense system.

Neural therapy is an effective, nontoxic and inexpensive treatment for multiple sclerosis that can confer both immediate and long-term benefits.
Treatment of distal colitis with local anaesthetic agents.
In studies of experimental colitis a potential antagonism between harmful adrenergic nerves and mucosa-protective visceral afferents in the pathogenesis of colitis is intriguing.
Intravenous Lignocaine (Lidocaine) Infusion for the Treatment of Chronic Daily Headache with Substantial Medication Overuse
Intravenous lignocaine infusion is a useful treatment in the management of chronic daily headache with substantial medication overuse and the benefits of the program last for at least six months.
Gabapentin Supplemented With Ropivacain Block of Trigger Points Improves Pain Control and Quality of Life in Trigeminal Neuralgia Patients When Compared With Gabapentin Alone
The association of GBP and ROP is safe, without side effects and results in an important clinical benefit associated to an improvement of the functional health status of TN patients when compared with GBP alone.
