Epidural Lysis of Adhesions

An epidural lysis of adhesions is performed to decrease or eliminate scar tissue in the epidural space. Scar tissue, or adhesions, can be caused by back surgery, a tear, or inflammation. Scar tissue causes pain and can decrease the effectiveness of epidural injections. During a lysis of adhesions, X-ray is used to guide the needle to the proper place. Medication is then injected to break up scar tissue, followed by medications to decrease inflammation and pain.
