Sympathetic dysfunction in patients with chronic low back pain and failed back surgery syndrome

EL-Badawy, Mohja ; El Mikkawy, D.M.E. 


Abstract


Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is defined as pain that persists longer than 12 weeks and is often attributed to degenerative or traumatic conditions of the spine. Failed back surgery syndrome is a condition in which chronic pain persists after spinal surgery. Electrodiagnostic studies can be used to confirm the diagnosis of lumbosacral radiculopathy, but other diagnostic methods are often needed to assess sympathetic nervous system dysfunction.
