Translocation of AMPA Receptors in the Dorsal Horn of the Spinal Cord Corresponding to Long-term Depression Following Pulsed Radiofrequency Stimulation at the Dorsal Root Ganglion.

Pulsed radiofrequency stimulation at the dorsal root ganglion is used for treatment of radicular pain; however, its mechanism for neuropathic pain treatment has not been fully elucidated. Here, we inv...

Electrocatheter-mediated High-voltage Pulsed Radiofrequency of the Dorsal Root Ganglion in the Treatment of Chronic Lumbosacral Neuropathic Pain: A Randomized Controlled Study.

Despite the interest in scientific community, there is still poor evidence about pulsed radiofrequency efficacy in the treatment of neuropathic pain. In order to determine if high-voltage pulsed radio...

A prospective case series of sphenopalatine ganglion pulsed radiofrequency therapy for refractory chronic cluster headache.

The management options for chronic cluster headache (CCH) are limited and a significant proportion of patients become refractory to pharmacological treatments. Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) of the sphen...

Radiosurgery to the spinal dorsal root ganglion induces fibrosis and inhibits satellite glial cell activation while preserving axonal neurotransmission.

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has been used to treat trigeminal neuralgia by targeting the cisternal segment of the trigeminal nerve, which in turn triggers changes in the gasserian ganglion. In the...

Nonlinear Relation Between Burst Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation Amplitude and Behavioral Outcome in an Experimental Model of Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy.

Dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRGS) has recently emerged as a neuromodulation modality in the treatment of chronic neuropathic pain. The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of diff...

Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection With Pulsed Radiofrequency for Chronic Lumbosacral Radicular Pain Management

The purpose of this study is to examine the potential changes in levels of pain, quality of life (QoL) and activities of daily living (ADL) observed when transforaminal epidural steroid in...

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Chronic Lumbosacral Radicular Pain

In this study, we try to evaluate the effect of using ALA as an adjuvant treatment in patients scheduled for pulsed radiofrequency treatment (PRFT) of the affected dorsal root ganglion (DR...

Ganglion Impar Denervation and Radiofrequency on Sacral Root 3 for Chronic Prostatic Pain

the authors will evaluate the added analgesic benefit of pulsed radiofrequency on sacral root 3 with ganglion impar denervation on chronic pelvic pain due to chronic prostatitis

TransGrade Multimodal Neuromodulation of the Dorsal Root Ganglion Ensemble for Refractory Neuropathic Pain

This a single center study comparing two forms of electrical stimulation: sub-sensory burst stimulation (DRG-Burst3D) and standard low frequency stimulation (DRG-LF) in the dorsal root gan...

Analgesic Efficacy of Pulsed Radiofrequency in Non-cyclic Mastalgia

Background: Breast pain, mastalgia or mastodynia, is recognized as an organic benign breast disease. Mastalgia may be bilateral, may be in only one breast or part of one breast, and may ra...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.

Neurons in the posterior (dorsal) horn of the spinal cord whose cell bodies and processes are confined entirely to the central nervous system. They receive collateral or direct terminations of dorsal root fibers. They send their axons either directly to ANTERIOR HORN CELLS or to the white matter ascending and descending longitudinal fibers.

Method of treating pain associated with the sphenopalatine ganglion located in the PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA, posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The transnasal approach involves application of suitable local anesthetic to the mucous membrane overlying the ganglion.

The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion. It then is periodically reactivated throughout life causing mostly benign conditions.

A small protuberance at the dorsal, posterior corner of the wall of the third ventricle, adjacent to the dorsal thalamus and pineal body. It contains the habenular nuclei and is a major part of the epithalamus. (From Lockard, Desk Reference for Neuroscience, 2nd ed, p121)
