} Ceylan and colleagues (2019) noted that DDD is one of the main causes of LBP. } Furthermore, this study was retrospective. Desai MJ, Ollerenshaw J, Harrison R, et al. 510(k) Summary. 2006;15(Suppl 2):S192-S300. Only 5.1 % patients were not satisfied with the treatment and 10.2 % would not repeat the treatment if needed. Accessed January 15, 2002. The most widely used therapeutic combination is intradiscal injection of an O2-O3 mixture (chemonucleolysis), followed by peri-radicular injection of O2-O3, steroid and local anesthetic to enhance the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. Other outcome measures were functional improvement, improvement of psychological status, and return to work. There were no complications with the procedure. Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI). The authors concluded that these preliminary findings suggested that O2-O3 chemonucleolysis may be an additional therapeutic option in this category of patients; however, these promising results await confirmation in future studies on larger patient cohorts.

Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation for facet-mediated neck and back pain. Wetzel FT, McNally TA, Phillips FM. 2004;4(1):27-35. Spine. At least 50 % improvement in NRS was observed for 13.8, 45.8, 41.1, 23.5, and 38.9 % of patients across five follow-up visits, out to 1 year. The primary outcome measure was pain relief of at least 6 months. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either PDD (n = 46) or TFESI (n = 44, up to 2 injections). A critique of this systematic evidence review by the Centre for Review and Dissemination (2010) noted that the results were mainly extracted from observational studies in settings where the studied procedure was performed routinely; hence there was a bias risk in favor of the procedure (this limitation was acknowledged by the authors). All clinical symptoms except for the sensory deficit in the left leg were relieved. Unfortunately, most of these strategies do not meet the minimal criteria for a positive treatment advice. The bottom line, he said, is that more study is needed. Discography, cervical or thoracic, radiological supervision and interpretation. However, these results need to be confirmed in prospective, randomized trials. The Refined Approach [website]. A total of 86.2 % of the patients rated the procedure as very good or good at 12 months. Adding codes to precertification as well. They noted that there is strong in-vitro evidence that supports the use of intradiscal PRP for discogenic LBP.

Monfett M, Harrison J, Boachie-Adjei K, Lutz G. Intradiscal platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections for discogenic low back pain: An update. The results of the meta-analysis indicated that the effects of intradiscal MB injection between pre-operation and post-operation on DLBP were statistically significant based on the 3-month VAS or NRS (weighted mean difference [WMD] = 3.61; 95 % CI: 2.46 to 4.76; p < 0.05) and ODI (WMD = 24.64, 95 % CI: 12.07 to 37.21, p < 0.05), the 6-month VAS or NRS (WMD = 2.95; 95 % CI: 1.20 to 4.71; p < 0.05) and ODI (WMD = 23.21, 95 % CI: 12.89 to 33.53, p < 0.05), and the 12-month VAS or NRS (WMD = 3.19; 95 % CI: 0.99 to 5.40; p < 0.05) and ODI (standard mean difference [SMD] = 29.51, 95 % CI: 20.60 to 38.42, p < 0.05). Azzazi and colleagues (2011) evaluated the safety and clinical outcome of Nucleoplasty in well-selected cases. OL OL LI { Secondary outcome measures included treatment "responders", defined as the proportion of subjects with a 2-point or 30 % decrease in VAS scores. MR-guided percutaneous intradiscal thermotherapy (MRgPIT): Evaluation of a new technique for the treatment of degenerative disc disease in cadaveric lumbar spine. The authors concluded that ozone therapy appeared to yield positive results and low morbidity rates when applied percutaneously for the treatment of chronic LBP. Needle artefacts and contrast-to-noise ratios (CNR) of 6 interactive sequences (PD-, T1-, T2w TSE, T1-, T2w GRE, bSSFP) with varying echo-times (TE) and needle orientations to the main magnetic field (B0) were analyzed. Kwak and Chang (2018) stated that despite medication, exercise, and medical intervention, many patients complain of persistent discogenic neck pain. A total of 33 subjects were selected to be treated with intradiscal MBI. In all cases, their condition was refractory to initial conservative care and 1 epidural steroid injection had failed. In patient 1 VAS went from 7 to 8 cm claiming no improvements after the procedure. Zhu H, Zhou XZ, Cheng MH,  et al. (Examples: Banana bags, heparin, nitroglycerin, antiemetics, antibiotics, etc.) A number of minimally invasive procedures have also been developed in the recent past for its management. there is conflicting evidence that procedures aimed at reducing the nociceptive input from painful intervertebral discs using either intradiscal radiofrequency thermocoagulation or IDET, in patients with discogenic low back pain, are not more effective than sham treatments (level C); and. Of the patients who were followed-up at 8 years, 36 % (CI: 17 % to 55 %) had undergone surgery and the median satisfaction was "4" (interquartile range of 2 to 5). Kallewaard and associates (2019) noted that a study published in PAIN in 2010 showed remarkable effects of intradiscal MB injections compared with placebo on pain intensity in patients with chronic discogenic LBP (CD-LBP). Sample size was calculated before the study and using a 2:1 allocation with 80 % power, 75 patients were required. Hashemi and co-workers (2014) determined the effect of intradiscal ozone injection on pain score and disability in patients with LBP from prolapsed disks. Before operation, the mean value of ODI was 68.2 +/- 10.9 %. 2016;7(4):250-256. Two randomized controlled trials provided evidence of no benefit to health outcomes and one randomized controlled trial failed to demonstrate confidence of any benefit to the Medicare population. IP073. Short-term effectiveness was defined as 1-year or less and long-term effectiveness was defined as greater than 1-year. Pain Med. An intradiscal injection can be performed for either a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. Subcutaneous Injections. Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2008;12(1):14-21. Papadopoulos D, Batistaki C, Kostopanagiotou G. Comparison of the efficacy between intradiscal gelified ethanol (Discogel) injection and intradiscal combination of pulsed radiofrequency and gelified ethanol (Discogel) injection for chronic discogenic low back pain treatment. 2000;25(20):2601-2607. Interv Neuroradiol. Moreover, there is currently insufficient evidence to recommend intra-discal electrothermal therapy and intradiscal biacuplasty. Moreover, they stated that further study with adequate follow-up retention is needed to confirm that Dekompressor spares open spinal surgery. Furthermore, UpToDate reviews on “Subacute and chronic low back pain: Nonsurgical interventional treatment” (Chou, 2020) and “Management of non-radicular neck pain in adults” (Isaac, 2020) do not mention intradiscal injection of gelified ethanol / DiscoGel as a management option. A review of the literature of the effectiveness of the Nucleoplasty procedure for managing discogenic pain was performed according to the criteria for observational studies using a "Quality Index" scale to determine the methodological quality of the literature. P/N 07743. The authors concluded that in patients who had radicular pain associated with a contained lumbar disc herniation, PDD resulted in significantly reduced pain and better quality of life scores than repeated TFESI. OL LI { The lack of long-term and comparative data also makes it difficult to distinguish between the treatment effect and the natural history of the disease, as well as determine whether the benefits of this procedure are sustained beyond 12 months.”. Available at: http://www.nucleoplasty.com/dph/information/introduction.pdf. Sanders NR. } This technique utilizes the Bialys TransDiscal System. Intradiscal electrothermal treatment for chronic discogenic low back pain: A prospective outcome study with minimum 1-year follow-up. 2020;33(1):66-72. No intra-operative and post-operative complications were reported. Chronic LBP had lasted for more than 3 months with a minimum intensity of 4/10 on a VAS and disability level of greater than or equal to 30 % on the ODI. list-style-type: lower-alpha; The efficacy of coblation nucleoplasty for protrusion of lumbar intervertebral disc at a two-year follow-up.

London, UK: NICE; May 2004. Bloomington, MN: ICSI; 2005. One suggested differences only in pain and disability, while the best quality randomized controlled trial showed no differences. Since 2 RCTs are in progress on that procedure, assessment of biacuplasty may change upon publication of those studies. The Oswestry Disability Index Questionnaire decreased from 62.2 to 9.6 at the 1 year follow-up (p = 0.001). Intradiscal electrothermal anuloplasty. The quality of individual articles was assessed based on the modified Cochrane review criteria for randomized trials and criteria from the AHRQ. 2018;46(6):2461-2465. @media print { Secondary outcome measures were improvements in functional status. Technical Brief Prepared for AETMIS. The disarticulated cervical spines from 4 fresh frozen cadavers were studied. Interventional techniques: Evidence-based practice guidelines in the management of chronic spinal pain. Ren DJ, Liu XM, Du SY, et al. Kallewaard JW, Terheggen MA, Groen GJ, et al. 2013;14(3):362-373. CPT Code Long Descriptor Global Work RVU 2014. Ong et al (2016) stated that open discectomy remains the standard of treatment for patients with lumbar radicular pain secondary to a prolapsed intervertebral disc. The quality assessment and clinical relevance criteria utilized were the Cochrane Musculoskeletal Review Group criteria as utilized for interventional techniques for randomized trials and the criteria developed by the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale criteria for observational studies. 2020 Mar 20 [Online ahead of print]. Stability of the lumbar spine after intradiscal electrothermal therapy. At 2 weeks, no patient had soreness at the needle insertion site or new areas of back pain; however, new numbness and tingling was present in 15 % of patients. No severe AEs (SAEs) were reported during a 12-month follow up period with no incidences of infection. Efficacy, safety, and predictors of intradiscal methylene blue injection for discogenic low back pain: Results of a multicenter prospective clinical series. Spine. Percutaneous intradiscal radiofrequency thermocoagulation for chronic discogenic low back pain. The procedure is suggested to be an alternative to spinal fusion surgery in which the disc is destroyed and the two vertebrae are fused together. Curr Rev Pain. 72295. Injections of cBMA were offered as a therapeutic option for qualified patients based upon clinical evaluation, the refractory and somewhat degenerative nature of their condition, and the relative absence of effective conservative rehabilitation strategies to avoid surgical intervention. San Francisco, CA: California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF); October 8, 2003. Study participants were chosen from consecutive patients of 3 spine surgeons if they satisfied eligibility criteria. Yang CS, Zhang LJ, Sun ZH, et al. Treatment patients reported a reduction of 16 mg daily intake of opioids at 6 months; however, the results were not statistically different from sham patients. Helm S, Hayek SM, Benyamin RM, Manchikanti L. Systematic review of the effectiveness of thermal annular procedures in treating discogenic low back pain. IP181. The study did not find evidence for a benefit of PIRFT, although it can not rule out a moderate effect. Streptococcus intermedius was detected within the abscess. Lesioning in either the middle or posterior portion of the disc failed to provide sufficient temperature increases throughout the cervical disc to achieve adequate denervation. A sample aliquot of BMC was characterized by flow cytometry and colony-forming unit-fibroblast (CFU-F) assay to determine progenitor cell content. Nucleoplasty-treated levels were L2 to L3 (1 case), L3 to L4 (5 cases), L4 to L5 (44 cases), and L5 - S1 (40 cases); there were 22 multiple treatment levels and 42 bilateral treatments. The bilateral approach is intended to facilitate controlled lesioning between the electrodes in the disc. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (2004) concluded that "[c]urrent evidence on the safety and efficacy of percutaneous intradiscal electrothermal therapy for lower back pain does not appear adequate" and that "[t]he natural history of this condition, the difficulty in assessing pain and the potential for a placebo effect all present problems when interpreting the evidence on this procedure.".
