Percutaneous Lysis of Epidural Adhesions for Failed Back Syndrome
Among the innovative treatments we offer, Percutaneous Lysis of Epidural Adhesions (also known as adhesiolysis) stands out as a potential solution for individuals experiencing Failed Back Syndrome (FBS) or persistent pain after back surgery. FBS can occur due to scar tissue formation (adhesions) around nerve roots or other structures in the epidural space. This procedure involves using specialized tools to break down or dissolve these adhesions, potentially providing relief from persistent pain.
Before undergoing Percutaneous Lysis of Epidural Adhesions, our experienced medical team will conduct a thorough assessment of your medical history, symptoms, and relevant diagnostic tests. This assessment helps us determine whether this procedure is suitable for your condition.
On the day of the procedure, you will be comfortably positioned on an examination table. The injection site will be sterilized to ensure a clean environment and reduce the risk of infection. To ensure your comfort during the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the skin and tissues around the injection site.
Using fluoroscopy or other imaging guidance, a specialized needle or catheter will be carefully guided to the area of adhesions. The tools may include mechanical devices, lasers, or other techniques to break down or dissolve the scar tissue.
This procedure specifically targets the scar tissue that may be compressing nerves or causing pain, potentially leading to relief.
Percutaneous Lysis of Epidural Adhesions is a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery, often resulting in shorter recovery times.
For individuals with Failed Back Syndrome, this procedure holds the potential to provide relief from persistent pain and improve quality of life.
Reduced adhesions and relieved pain can lead to improved movement and functionality.
After the procedure, you may experience mild soreness at the injection site. This is normal and should resolve within a few days. You should monitor your pain levels and any changes in your symptoms. Our medical team will provide you with post-procedure guidelines and recommendations for activities. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess your progress and the effectiveness of the Percutaneous Lysis of Epidural Adhesions.
