Gangrene Pain Management

Gangrene is Peripherial vascular disease caused by problem in blood vessels supplying blood to our limbs. It can cause severe pain.

If you walk hundred yards, you will have to stop due to severe pain in limbs. Sometimes the fingers and toes or even the whole arm or leg may turn black and may have to be amputated. Such patients can benefit immensely by a sympathetic nerve block. After this block, the blood vessels dialating increasing the blood supply to the limbs and muscles giving pain relief. Even wound and ulcers on feet or limbs heal sooner. The patient then can comfortably perform their daily activities an can avoid amputation surgery.

There are two major types of gangrene, referred to as dry and wet. Many cases of dry gangrene are not infected. All cases of wet gangrene are considered to be infected, almost always by bacteria.The common cause of either wet or dry gangrene is loss of an effective local blood supply to any tissue. Loss of the blood supply means tissues are deprived of oxygen, thus causing the cells in the tissue to die. The most common causes of tissue blood supply loss are infections, trauma, and diseases that can affect blood vessels (usually arteries).

Dry gangrene can result from any of a number of diseases or mechanisms that can reduce or block arterial blood flow. Although the most common diseases that can cause dry gangrene are diabetes, arteriosclerosis, and tobacco addiction, there are many other lesser-known diseases that can lead to this problem.

Wet gangrene can result from all the causes listed above for dry gangrene but always includes infection. In some cases of wet gangrene, the initial cause is considered to be the infection. Although many types of organisms (mainly bacteria) are known to participate in wet gangrene infections, the classic bacterial organism associated with wet gangrene is clostridium perfringens, an anaerobic bacterium that grows best when oxygen is not present.

At Meenakshi Pain Management Center, we have treated several patients with Gangrene. Dr. Yashwant Nankar & Dr. Meenakshi Nankar has experience of several years to treat the patients of Gangrene.

Our Treatments on Sciatica/Back Pain

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A Spinal Cord Stimulator or Dorsal Column Stimulator is a type of implantable neuromodulation device that is used to send electrical signals to select areas of the spinal cord for the treatment of certain pain conditions.It is consideration for people who have a pain condition not responded to conservative therapy.

Nerve Root Block

A nerve root block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid injected under X-ray guidance into the area where the nerve exits the spinal column. A nerve root block is usually ordered by your doctor for pain in the arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current.

Epidural Injection

Epidural steroid injection is a technique in which corticosteroids and a local anesthetic are injected into the epidural space around the spinal cord in an effort to improve spinal stenosis, spinal disc herniation, or
both.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation is "the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body".

Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief.TENS is typically done with a TENS unit, a small battery-operated device.
