TRIGGER POINT INJECTION OF LOCAL ANAESTHETIC FOR TREATMENT OF ABDOMINAL CUTANEOUS NERVE ENTRAPMENT SYNDROME
Dr. Sahil Gupta and Dr. Garima Dabas*
Abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome(ACNES) can be acute or chronic. It is often misdiagnosed as irritable bowel, spastic colon, gastritis, psychoneurosis, depression, anxiety, hysteria, and malingering. Appropriate treatment by infiltration of local anaesthetic either alone or in combination with alcohol/corticosteroids can avoid multiple unnecessary complementary investigations and wrongful diagnosis.
