Cervical Retrolaminar Injection
|Cervical Retrolaminar Injection|
|Indication||Cervical radicular pain|
|Needle||22g 50mm needle|
The cervical retrolaminar injection is an experimental treatment for cervical radicular pain. As a fascial plane block it is theoretically safer than epidural corticosteroid injection. The target point is the cervical retrolaminar plane - between the lamina and cervical multififus muscle. This technique may be considered safer than ESI. Injection at C6 has been shown to spread from C2-T3.

- 22G 50mm needle inserted in plane of the transducer.
- Target point posterior aspect of lamina of target segment, under the cervical multififus muscle.
- Inject 4 mL of Lidocaine 0.5% with 10 mg (1 mL) dexamethasone was injected.
