Study Summary

This trial evaluates the effectiveness of cryoanalgesia, a treatment for pelvic pain that uses freezing temperatures to block nerves, guided by magnetic resonance neurography.

Eligible Conditions
  • Pelvic Pain Syndrome
  • Inguinal Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Perineal Neuralgia
  • Meralgia Paresthetica

Eligibility Criteria

Age 18 - 100 · All Participants · 8 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
old People between the ages of 18 and 100 years old.
Chronic pelvic pain that doesn't improve with standard treatments like medication, physical therapy, and nerve blocks may be caused by a problem with the nervous system.
The person must report the pain to be at a 4 or higher on a scale of 0 to 10.
This means that the nerve can be frozen using MRI guidance.
The patient's pain must be due to a single lumbosacral nerve, as confirmed by selective nerve blocks that provide adequate temporary pain relief
with heparin People with known coagulopathy or bleeding disorders are treated with heparin in order to control their condition.
care No medical or psychiatric illness that would prevent giving consent or receiving treatment.
Cryoablation should be performed within 3 months of the nerve block.
