Genitofemoral Nerve ablation
Genitofemoral neuralgia is a cause of neuropathic pain that is often debilitating in nature. It is characterized by chronic neuropathic groin and scrotal pain that is localized along the distribution of the genitofemoral nerve. Existing specific treatments are inefficient and often fail. Radiofrequency neurolysis (pulsed radiofrequency )appears to be significantly more effective than local nerve infiltrations. It is a safe and effective treatment for chronic groin and scrotal pain. Local steroid injection along with local injection of anesthetics should be used as a confirmation of genitofemoral neuropathy before performing radiofrequency neurolysis.
