Lumbar Sympathetic Ganglion Block Indication: Neuropathic Pain, CRPS, Hyperhydrosis Etc. | Comparison of Methods of Lumbar Sympathetic Ganglion Block: Distance vs Angle

Lumbar Sympathetic Ganglion Block Indication: Neuropathic Pain, CRPS, Hyperhydrosis Etc. research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

Lumbar sympathetic ganglion block is used for several neuropathic pain syndromes. The best method of lumbar sympathetic ganglion block is not established. The investigators would compare two methods of lumbar sympathetic ganglion block. One is modified Reid method which's entry point is 7~7.5cm from midline of spinous process of lumbar spine. The other is angular method which's entry angle is 30 degree from anterior-posterior view of C-arm. Comparison modified Reid method with angular method would be helpful for finding best method of lumbar sympathetic ganglion block.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: 1. Adults above age of 20 2. Undergoing lumbar sympathetic ganglion block indication Exclusion Criteria: 1. Infection 2. Bleeding tendency 3. Previous spinal surgery history 4. Pregnancy 5. Illiteracy

Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?

Lumbar Sympathetic Ganglion Block Indication: Neuropathic Pain, CRPS, Hyperhydrosis Etc.

Study Interventions

Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.

Procedure:lumbar sympathetic ganglion block

Study Arms

Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.

block method: angleThe entry angle of angular method which is one method of lumbar sympathetic ganglion block is 30 degree of anterior-posterior view of C-arm.

block method: distanceThe entry point of modified Reid method which is popular method of lumbar sympathetic ganglion block is 7~7.5cm from midline of spinous process of lumbar spine.
