Cervical interlaminar epidural steroid injection cpt code

The neck area (cervical) of your spine is made up of seven bones stacked on top of each other. The cervical discs are found in between each vertebra and act as a cushion to help the neck move and bend without affecting the surrounding nerves. If a cervical disc becomes diseased, the vertebrae might lose support and impact a nerve along the spine, thus resulting in pain and discomfort. During our cervical disc replacement procedure, we remove the diseased disc and replace it with an artificial disc to add cushion between the vertebrae and stabilize the spine.

Kenalog in blood - Derby et al. "Size and aggregation of corticosteroids used for epidural injections"

  • Depo-Medrol also formed large aggregations in the study by Tiso et al [6]
  • Celestone Soluspan formed large aggregations only in the Derby et al study  [7 ]
  • It is speculated that these large aggregates occlude smaller vessels, and thus lead to infarction .
  • Injection of methylprednisolone vs dexamethasone vs prednisolone into the vertebral artery of pigs – see summary of study here
