Résumé

Ultrasound-guided injections are an alternative to evaluate in the management of low back pain associated with osteoarthritis of the lumbar facet joints: it eliminates the risk of ionizing radiation for both the patient and the practitioner. This study aims to compare the short-term clinical efficacy of lumbar facet joints injections between ultrasound-guided injections and fluoroscopy-guided injections. Observational, retrospective, single-center study. Patients received one or two lumbar zygapophyseal joints injections under fluoroscopy or ultrasound and a follow-up consultation at one month. Data from 54 patients was collected. The median of the evolution of VAS at one month was - 30 mm [-50.0; -20.0] in the ultrasound group and - 29.5 mm [-47.0; -15.0] (p < 0.001) in the fluoroscopy group with no statistically significant difference between the two groups (p = 0.835). There were no injection-related complications in either group during the follow-up. The percentage of patients who stopped NSAIDs was not statistically significant between the two groups (p = 1.00). Injections of corticosteroids of lumbar facet joints under ultrasound guidance significantly reduced pain after one month, with no difference found between the two techniques. Ultrasound-guided injections are reliable, accessible and a safe alternative that should be preferred over those under fluoroscopy.
