  • Therapeutic Applications of Ethanol: A Review. [Journal Article]
    J Pharm Pharm Sci 2019; 22(1):525-535Le Daré B, Gicquel T
  • CONCLUSIONS: With the development of interventional radio technologies, and thus extremely precise access to anatomical structures, alcohol has been given new indications - particularly as an embolization, sclerosing or ablation agent. Moreover, constant progress in our knowledge of ethanol's pharmacodynamics might highlight other therapeutic indications for this compound in the future. Ethanol's low cost and wide availability make it a valuable therapeutic agent, compared with other reference treatments. Furthermore, ethanol has a long track record of safety and effectiveness in the indications mentioned above.
  • Percutaneous treatment of aortic root rupture after transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure. [Journal Article]

Therapeutic approaches reported in literature include conventional surgical procedure, isolated pericardial drainage, and conservative strategy. A discussion in a multi…
  • A rare complication of knee hematoma after genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation. [Case Reports]
    Pain Rep 2019 May-Jun; 4(3):e736Strand N, Jorge P, … D'Souza RS
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report describing iatrogenic vascular injury in the knee after a genicular RFA procedure. Pain medicine physicians should be aware of the vascular anatomy of the knee, particularly paying close attention to variations after previous surgeries. Future trials should investigate modalities that minimize vascular complications including concomitant use of ultrasonography with fluoroscopy and other forms of RFA including pulsed or cooled RFA.
