Cooled radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive neuroablative technique used in the treatment of various pain syndromes. Even though RF has been used for some time in cardiac electrophysiology and tumor ablation, its use in the treatment of pain is recent. The mechanism of pain relief from RF application is analogous to conventional thermal radiofrequency application - a thermal lesion is created, by applying radiofrequency energy through an electrode placed in the vicinity of the target neural structure, with the aims of interrupting the afferent nociceptive pathways.
