Here is the second, completely revised and updated edition of the successful practical guide to image-guided spine intervention. It contains revised text and images as well as new sections and chapters. The updated text thoroughly discusses both well-established and new interventions that are applied to the spine for the purpose of pain relief.If persistent pain occurs, one may need to prescribe analgesics appropriate for the patienta#39;s pain level and suspected duration. This will not usually take the form of a long-term or chronic analgesic administration. ... may be handled by the use of NSAIDs alone or in combination with a weak opioid (codeine, hydrocodone, dihydrocodeine, oxycondone). Controlled trials show little difference in efficacy of the NSAID category, and, therefore, finding one that works will usually be sufficient.
