A practical, case-based guide on how to perform minimally invasive, image-guided procedures for pain management
Minimally-invasive techniques with fewer complications are continually being developed to provide relief to patients with debilitating, unrelenting pain. Although significant advancements have been made and development continues at a rapid pace, it is essential that progress continues and clinicians unfamiliar with these techniques learn and incorporate them into practice. Advanced Pain Management in Interventional Radiology edited by renowned interventional radiologists J. David Prologo and Charles E. Ray Jr. is the first textbook to use case examples to detail the latest image-guided interventional approaches to treat conditions, diseases, and syndromes associated with unremitting, incapacitating pain.
Fifty chapters by top experts in the field provide reviews of clinical conditions and technical guidance on how to perform procedures for a wide range of challenging pain conditions. The book starts with an insightful chapter on opioids, with discussion of history, the devastating opioid crisis, an overview of interventional pain procedures, and the important role interventional radiologists play in decreasing opioid use in select populations. Subsequently, each of the case-based chapters is consistently formatted with the case presentation, clinical evaluation, review of pertinent imaging, development of a treatment plan (including non-IR treatment options), technical details, potential complications, and a literature review of the featured technique.
