Percutaneous treatment of cervical and lumbar disc herniation and discogenic pain with Radiopaque Gelified Ethanol

Abstract: This study documents the efficacy of chemonucleolysis with radiopaque gelified ethanol in the treatment of cervical and lumbar disc herniation and discogenic pain. Ten patients underwent this procedure between April 1 and June 30, 2010. Satisfactory results were obtained in 100% of patients. There were no adverse events reported during or post-procedure and a significant reduction in pain and analgesic intake after intradiscal injection was registered. This technique, simple and safe to perform, yielded satisfactory results; thus, it appears to be a good alternative in the treatment of herniated discs and discogenic pain

Keywords: Chemonucleolysis, Disc herniation, Ethanol
