The use of topical 4% lidocaine in spheno-palatine ganglion blocks for the treatment of chronic muscle pain syndromes: a randomized, controlled trial

  [ 36 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • July 10, 1995


To assess the efficacy of 4% topical lidocaine in
spheno-palatine blocks, a randomized controlled trial was
carried out on patients with chronic muscle pain syndromes.
Sixty-one patients (42 with fibromyalgia (FM) and 19 with
myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)) completed the trial. Outcome
measures included pain intensity, a daily pain diary, headache
frequency, sensitivity to pressure using a dolorimeter,
anxiety, depression, and sleep quality. Patients were
randomized to receive either 4% lidocaine or sterile water
(placebo) 6 times over a 3-week period. Both subjects and
investigators were blind to treatment allocation.

The resultsshowed that 4% lidocaine had no superiority over
placebo in any of the outcome measures. Twenty-one subjects
(35%) showed a decrease in pain which was greater than 30%
of their baseline value. Of these 21 subjects, 10 received
lidocaine and 11 received placebo. These data suggest that, in
this population, 4% lidocaine is no better than placebo in the
treatment of chronic muscle pain.
