Diagnostic Genicular Nerve Block May Predict Treatment Outcomes of Cooled RFA in Chronic Knee Pain

By

Genicular nerve cooled radiofrequency ablation may effectively relieve chronic knee pain associated with osteoarthritis and improve function for up to 6 months.

Conventional Radiofrequency Ablation More Effective Than Pulsed Radiofrequency for Perineal Pain

Conventional Radiofrequency Ablation More Effective Than Pulsed Radiofrequency for Perineal Pain

By

In patients with chronic non-oncological perineal pain, ganglion impar block with conventional radiofrequency may result in improved pain relief compared with pulsed radiofrequency ablation.

Predictive Value of Genicular Nerve Blocks for Outcomes of Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation

Predictive Value of Genicular Nerve Blocks for Outcomes of Cooled Radiofrequency Ablation

By

Pain relief of at least 50% following a prognostic genicular nerve block may not predict pain relief following genicular nerve cooled radiofrequency ablation in patients with chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis.
