Interventional pain management techniques: An update on current practice and future directions.
Interventional pain management techniques have become increasingly popular over the years as a means of treating chronic pain in a minimally invasive manner. This paper provides an update on current practice and future directions of interventional pain management techniques. The review begins with a discussion of the various types of interventional pain management techniques, including nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation, and radiofrequency ablation. The review then delves into the evidence base for these techniques and their efficacy for specific pain conditions. The paper also covers emerging interventional pain management techniques, such as regenerative medicine and targeted drug delivery. Finally, the review concludes with a discussion of future directions in interventional pain management, including the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to personalize treatment and optimize outcomes.Author(s): Zehuo Haihong
