Diz ağrısında plus-radyofrekans uygulaması

Diz osteoartiriti (OA), osteoartirit çeşitlerinden en sık görüleni ve genel popülasyonda sakatlık ve alt ekstremite ağrılarının en sık nedenidir. Diz OA için tedavi; ağrıyı hafişetmek, inşamasyonu azaltmak, sertliği azaltmak, eklem hareketlerini sürdürmek ve gelecekteki deformiteyi önlemek amaçlıdır. ‹ntra-artiküler steroid enjeksiyonu popüler bir uygulamadır fakat sık tekrarlanırsa etkisi kaybolabilir. Biz bu olgu sunumunda diğer medikal tedavilere yanıt vermeyen ve cerrahi tedavileri kabul etmeyen bir hastada puls radyofrekans uygulaması deneyimimizi sunduk.

Pulsed radiofrequency for knee joint pain

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is the most frequent type of osteoarthritis and is a common cause of lower extremity pain and disability in the general population. Given the lack of a direct cure, treatments for OA of the knee mainly focus on relieving pain, reducing inflammation, decreasing stiffness, maintaining joint mobility, and preventing further deformity. Intra-articular injections can achieve short-term pain relief by lubricating the joint. We present our experience with pulsed radiofrequency in a patient with long-standing arthrogenic pain not responding to medication or denying the surgical options.
