Abstract

Epidural Pulse Radiofrequency Treatment in Patients with Subacute Discogenic Radicular Pain

To study the effect of epidural pulse radiofrequency stimulation (PRFS) in patients with subacute discogenic radicular pain (RP). Thirty-four patients with RP secondary to mononeuropathies (cervical- thoracic-lumbar) were treated by epidural PRFS using a Radiofrequency generator PATRONA®- OMT GmbH&Co.KG and multifunctional PASHA-catheter electrode. Pain intensity was assessed over 3 months by Visual analogue scale (VAS).
