Pulsed radiofrequency for postherpetic neuralgia was developed as an alternative to conventional therapies. In fact, the procedures of conventional pulsed radiofrequency are not easy to perform. Authors describe the technique of CT-guided coaxial radiofrequency technique as being performed with a larger bore needle and coaxial system. The external sheath cannula is used as a coaxial system under computed (CT)-guided tomography to direct an accurate localization for radiofrequency treatment of thoracic nerve root postherpetic neuralgia.
