Intradiscal infiltration of Discogel


Intradiscal infiltration of Discogel is a medical procedure used to treat back pain associated with discs by injecting a substance called Discogel directly into the intervertebral disc. This gel-like substance is designed to seal and stabilize the disc, reducing pain and promoting healing.


Candidates for intradiscal infiltration of Discogel are typically individuals suffering from chronic back pain caused by conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or discogenic pain.


Preparation for the procedure typically involves a medical history review, discussion of medications, and explanation of the procedure and potential risks.


The treatment involves the patient lying on the procedure table, followed by the insertion of a needle into the affected intervertebral disc under fluoroscopic guidance. Discogel is then injected into the disc space, where it forms a gel-like mass to stabilize the disc and alleviate pain.


Results of intradiscal infiltration with Discogel may vary, but many patients experience reduced pain and improved function following the procedure.


Precautionary measures include monitoring for potential complications such as infection, nerve damage, or allergic reactions. It is essential for patients to follow post-procedure instructions provided by their healthcare provider to ensure optimal recovery and minimize risks.
