    Timing of Lumbar ESIs: Do Pre-operative Epidural Injections Effect Lumbar Spine Surgery Outcomes
    Author(s): Kelly H Yoo, Sina Sadeghzadeh, Aaryan Shah and Anand Veeravagu*

    The management of lumbar spine disorders often require a multimodal approach, with surgery considered for those unresponsive to conservative treatments. Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections (ESIs) are widely adopted for symptom alleviation and functional enhancement. While preoperative lumbar ESIs are proposed to enhance surgical outcomes, recent studies express concerns about complications, particularly an elevated risk of Postoperative Infections (POIs) due to corticosteroids. The intricate link between preoperative lumbar ESIs and surgical outcomes has been extensively explored. Retrospective analyses indicate a noticeable reduction in preoperative pain scores post-ESIs, suggesting potential synergy with surgical outcomes. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of ESIs may positively impact the perioperative period, though apprehensions .. View More»
