Pulsed Radiofrequency Application Reduced Mechanical Hypersensitivity and Microglial Expression in Neuropathic Pain Model
Pain Medicine, 08/01/2012
Park HW et al. – The result demonstrated that the mechanical hypersensitivity, induced by L5 spinal nerve ligation (SNL), was attenuated by a Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) procedure on the ipsilateral dorsal root ganglion (DRG). This analgesic effect may be associated with an attenuation of the microglial activation in the dorsal horn.
