Basivertebral nerve ablation beneficial for chronic back pai
For patients with chronic lumbar back pain, ablation of the basivertebral nerve (BVN) improves self-reported outcome at three months and through one year, according to a study published in the February issue of The Spine Journal.

Stephan Becker, M.D., from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology in Vienna, and colleagues examined the efficacy of intraosseous BVN ablation for treatment of chronic lumbar back pain. Seventeen patients with chronic low back pain for more than six months, which was unresponsive to at least three months of conservative care, were enrolled and 16 patients were treated successfully.
