A missing perspective
Nice and instructive case. I learn't a lot.I think it could be usefull to add some insight in the indication of the epidural.Although epidural corticoids are usefull in the treatment of lumbar pain refractary to other therapies, many times the relief is transient and frequently many injections are needed. So the risk-benefit or the epidural in the present case must include the poor long term benefit offered.
