Botulinum toxin has been well known as spasticity management tool for last more than 30 years. However limited allowed dose of botulinum toxin for each individual with moderate to severe spasticity did not allow to provide sufficient spasticity management. Alcohol and phenol has been also known as effective neurolytic agents. This lecture will introduce how to use alcohol and/or phenol for managing spasticity. Dosing, injection techniques, and guided injections with ultrasound and nerve stimulator will be covered. Upon completion of this lecture, attendees will be comfortable with choosing alcohol and phenol as neurolytic agents.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1 : Delineate how to inject ethanol or phenol with nerve stimulator guidance
2 : Describe use of ultrasound for chemoneurolysis
3 : Perform the combined procedures with botulinum toxin and alcohol/phenol
4 : Recognize advantages and potential adverse events with the use of phenol/ethanol as neurilytic agents under ultrasound and neurostimulation guidance in the pediatric population
5 : Select the appropriate neurolytic agents for pediatric spastic management
