During the period from March 1992 to June 1996, we performed percutaneous
radiofrequency (RF) facet rhizotomy in 324 patients with low back pain.
Employing the lesion generator, we coagulated branches of the zygapophyseal
nerve to treat low back pain. The follow-up period was 6-51 months (average:
22.5 months). There were no complications during the procedure and the
follow-up period and no poor results were observed. Two-hundred and
thirty-one patients (103 females and 128 males) had mechanical low back pain
syndrome and showed marked improvement of pain after the procedure,
including 29 cases with previous spinal surgery. We concluded that
percutaneous RF facet rhizotomy is a safe and effective procedure for low
back pain patients, especially for those with mechanical low back pain
