Caudal epidural injections, or sacral hiatus epidural injections, are one of several possible spinal epidural injections.
Typically, epidural injections are performed in patients who are currently not surgical candidates. The caudal injection can be performed when patients are on ...
Cervical interlaminar epidural injections are one of some possible spinal epidural injections. For an alternative approach for the same region, please refer to the article on cervical transforaminal epidural injections.
Typically epidural injections are performed in patients with ...
Epidural blood patch is a treatment option for patients with craniospinal hypotension or post lumbar puncture headaches. The procedure can be done blind or under fluoroscopic or CT guidance, and is performed predominantly by radiologists and anaesthetists.
Fluoroscopy-guided lumbar puncture (LP) is a minimally invasive, image-guided diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that involves the removal of a small volume of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from, or an injection of medication or other substance (e.g. radiotracer, chemotherapy agents) into the lumb...
Lumbar interlaminar epidural injections are one of some possible spinal epidural injections. For an alternative approach for the same region, please refer to the article on lumbar transforaminal epidural injections.

Epidural spinal injections are one of the more frequently performed spinal interventional procedures.Three approaches to the epidural space exist:
transforaminal epidural injection
interlaminar epidural injection

Transforaminal nerve root injfection is performed for radicular pain treatment and diagnosis.
See spinal interventional procedures for complications and equipment.
The desired needle tip position is just lateral to the pedicle immediately below the...
With the growing incidence of obesity in the western world, ultrasound-guided anaesthesia is becoming more common. Spinal anaesthesia is traditionally administered by identifying relevant surface anatomy and imaging is rarely used for pre-procedural identification of structures.
Vertebroplasty is an imaging-guided procedure which entails percutaneous injection of surgical polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement into a diseased vertebral body. Vertebroplasty provides pain relief and strengthening of the bone of vertebrae weakened by disease.
It can be used as ...
