Background: Cervical interlaminar epidural injection (CIEI) is widely used in the management
of acute or chronic neck and upper extremity pain. There is no consensus regarding the optimal
volume of solution to be used for CIEI.


Study Design: Randomized, double blind controlled trial.


Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how many spinal segments would be
covered with different volumes of contrast medium, given by fluoroscopically guided CIEI, in
efforts to establish the optimal volume of medication with consideration of clinical pathologic
lesions.


Methods: One hundred and twenty-six CIEI were performed at C7-T1 in 133 patients. All
patients were divided into 3 groups (A, B, and C) according to the amount of contrast medium
used: 2.5 mL for group A, 5 mL for group B, and 10 mL for group C. The extent of contrast
medium spread was determined by anteroposterior and lateral view under fluoroscopy.


Limitation: We did not evaluate the clinical outcomes with pain measurements during the
study period.


Results: The total number of vertebral segments of contrast media spread and spreading range
of caudad or cephalad were significantly different among the 3 groups (P < 0.001). However,
groups B and C in cephalad spreading and groups A and B in caudad spreading did not show any
significant difference. A proportion of the patients with a cephalad spread of up to C4 and C2
in group A (59.5% and 31%) was significantly different from that in the other 2 groups (92.9%
and 69.1% in group B and 97.6% and 73.8% in group C) (P < 0.001).


Conclusion: Five mL for CIEI at C7-T1 could be an optimal volume for distribution to the lower
cervical spine for degenerative cervical spinal diseases, as well as to the upper cervical spine for
head and facial pain.


Key words: Cervical epidural block, epidural injection, cervical epidural interlaminar injection,
distribution range, fluoroscopy, epidurogram, contrast medium, epidural spread.
