Abstract
The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of CT-guided perineural injection of corticosteroid (triamcinolone) and local anesthetic (lidocaine 2%) on the amount of paint of the patients with lumbar disc herniation in Imam Khomeini and Golestan hospitals during 2013 - 2014. In this study, 54 outpatients introduced to the radiology section (CT scan) by neurologist and neurosurgeons for perineural injection were studied. Friedman test was used to compare the overall recovery process (amount of pain and disability) during the treatment course. The results showed a significant decrease in the amount of pain and disability among patients (P < 0.05). Analgesic treatment was improved significantly on the seventh day after the injection. Pain relief lasted up to 6 months after injection, but its difference decreased during 3-6 months after injection. It is known that most complications from surgery in the last 40 years have the desired effect in the treatment of back pain.Generally, our findings indicate that this treatment is effective in reducing the amount of pain. According to these findings, and considering the very low side effects of perineural injection and its significant effect on recovery process of the patients, this method does not have the limitations and side effects of other treatment procedures. Thus, this method and its short recovery period may consider as a valuable alternative for complicated surgeries and their long recovery period. Moreover, this method can reduce the high costs of unnecessary surgeries.
