RACZ Caudal Neurolysis
RACZ Caudal Neurolysis is an out patient procedure used to treat pain in the lower back and leg. First a local anesthetic numbs the tissue around sacral hiatus. Then contrast dye is used to ensure proper placement in the epidural space and to see the scared areas through a fluoroscope. Finally is administered through a catheter (which is inserted through the needle) to dissolve scar tissue and alleviate pain. In order to further reduce scar tissue the treatment may be repeated. Discussing the benefits and risks with your doctor is strongly encouraged; results vary on a case-to-case basis.
