The painful syndromes most commonly encountered in general practice which are relieved by SARAPIN® treatment are as follows:
- Sciatic Pain
- Intercostal Neuralgia
- Alcoholic Neuritis
- Occipital Neuritis
- Brachial Plexus Neuralgia
- Meralgia Paresthetica
- Lumbar Neuralgia
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
These and allied conditions may be treated with success in a majority of cases by nerve block or local infiltration:
Paravertebral – Careful localization of the zone of tenderness permits a determination of the corresponding trunk levels to be injected.
Perineural – In some instances, as in sciatica, the affected nerve can be injected at a site distant from its origin.
Local Infiltration – Multiple injections throughout an area of tenderness provide for diffusion into all the affected parts.
|Caudal Canal||10 ml|
|Sciatic Nerve||10 ml|
|Local Infiltration||5-10 ml|
Withdraw plunger of syringe to make sure the needle point is not in a blood vessel.
Procedure should be gentle and unhurried.
Injection should be made whenever possible, through a procaine wheal.
SARAPIN® is intended only for professional use. Its successful employment depends upon a thorough knowledge of the anatomy involved.
Adverse Reactions to SARAPIN
Patient should be maintained in a recumbent position for 10 to 15 minutes following injection. A local sensation is to be expected, limited to the distribution of the nerve injected, and usually appearing as a temporary feeling of heaviness, although some cases will feel heat or a transitory aggravation of symptoms.
SARAPIN® is non-toxic, has no side effects other than above and is contraindicated only in areas of local inflammation.
