The management of pain is a complex problem. Cancer related pain, post-operative pain, and painful flares of chronic pain are difficult to treat. However, pain management is a fundamental human right and so clinicians need to be knowledgeable about analgesics and interventional approaches to pain management. Interventional pain procedures for management of pain have significantly evolved over the last decade.
A major reason for recent advancements could be attributed to the widespread use of image-guided techniques utilizing fluoroscopy and contrast media. This change improved the delivery of medications to the areas of pathology and potentially contributed to better outcomes and decreased complication rates.
