ABSTRACT
A 57-year-old woman presented with severe low back pain and pain in left buttock, which had persisted for 4 months. She underwent anterior lumbar interbody fusion with posterior screw fixation from L2 to S1 4 months ago. After the operation, she complained severe lancinating pain in left buttock and thigh which was aggravated during position change. Image studies showed no definite causable pathologic findings. We performed many kinds of block therapies. Among them, only sacroiliac joint block on the left side was effective for the patient’s pain temporarily. We performed percutaneous sacroiliac joint fixation on the left side. After the operation, the patient’s lancinating pain in the left buttock and thigh was improved.
