Rf Ablasion Edmond is nerve manipulation, under anesthesia, which is achieved by exposure to nerve structures through high frequency currents. The procedure dates back to the 1950’s and 1960’s, but it has become widely used to treat pain since the beginning of the 1990’s. To date, radiofrequency ablation is a standard procedure that many pain treatment clinics in the U.S. and Europe have undertaken. In those clinics, radiofrequency ablation of neural structures and radiofrequency ablation of the facet joints are two of the most common procedures. Visit for more details.
There are two variants of RFA – traditional and pulse. The choice between them, in each case, is determined by a physician. Your doctor will make their decision based on efficacy and safety.
* Traditional: In a standard procedure, the needles and electrodes are supplied to the neural-specific structure, and a voltage is applied with a frequency of 400-500 KHz, thereby heating the tissue in the vicinity of the needle tip. The heating temperature is maintained within the range of 70-80 degrees for a few minutes. The result is reversible damage to neural tissue, resulting in the disappearance of the pain. Effectiveness of an Rf Ablasion Edmond treatment can last from several months to several years.
* Pulse: When undergoing a pulse voltage RFA procedure, a frequency of 400-500 kHz is applied to electrodes. These “packages” have a 0.2 millisecond duration with a frequency of 120 times per minute. As a result, heating of the tissue reaches only 40-45 degrees, and nerve tissue damage occurs. Despite the absence of nerve damage, pain is absence in the long term.
Indications for RFA:
* Peripheral neuropathy;
* Sympathetically caused pain;
* Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy;
* Pain in the neck and back;
* Pain associated with stroke;
* Interdisk electrothermal treatment;
* Disc denervation;
* Facet syndrome;
* Failed back syndrome operated;
* Sacroiliitis (arthritis of the sacroiliac joint);
* Humeroscapular syndrome; and/or
* Cancer pain;
Despite what you may have read or heard about the radiofrequency ablation treatment, it is best to consult your local physician about the different kinds of pain management before making a decision. He or she will inform you of the different kinds of treatments available to you. Remember that your health plays a part in what method your physician uses, as well.
