Must we discontinue selective cervical nerve root blocks? : Report of two cases and review of the literature


Hodler, Juerg; Boos, Norbert; Schubert, Martin (2013). Must we discontinue selective cervical nerve root blocks? : Report of two cases and review of the literature. European Spine Journal, 22(S3):466-470.

Abstract

We report two detrimental neurologic complications after technically correct selected cervical nerve root blocks. Based on these cases and a thorough review of the literature, the indication for cervical nerve root blocks was reconsidered and limited. Similarly, we modified our technique to further reduce the likelihood for the occurrence of such severe complications.
