  • Persistent Hiccups After Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Case Rep 2018 Apr 04; 19:397-399
  • Abubaker AK, Rabadi DK, … Al-Qudah MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Persistent hiccups after epidural injection is a serious complication. As the exact mechanism of hiccups is not yet known, regardless the level of epidural or the mixture of drugs used, and the incident of hiccups after epidural injection is not well-reported, we think that the etiology and the incident rate must be further evaluated.
  • Brain Abscess of Basal Ganglia Presenting with Persistent Hiccups. [Journal Article]
  • WNWorld Neurosurg 2018; 112:182-185
  • Sweeney J, Bodman A, Hall WA
  • CONCLUSIONS: A comprehensive literature review confirmed brain abscess as a rare cause of intractable hiccups. In addition, there are few reports of lesions of the basal ganglia causing intractable hiccups. Aspiration and medical therapy resulted in resolution of the hiccups. Knowledge of the hiccup reflex arc and unusual presentation of basal ganglia lesions may shorten time to diagnosis.

  • Pharmacologic Interventions for Intractable and Persistent Hiccups: A Systematic Review. [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Emerg Med 2017; 53(4):540-549
  • Polito NB, Fellows SE
  • CONCLUSIONS: Baclofen, gabapentin, and metoclopramide were the only agents that were studied in a prospective manner, while only baclofen and metoclopramide were studied in randomized controlled trials. No specific recommendations can be made for treating intractable and persistent hiccups with the evidence currently available in the literature. Therapy selection should be specific to individual patients, their underlying comorbidities, etiology of hiccups, and take into account the individual properties of the drugs.
