This chapter examines the application of neurolytic procedures for the treatment and management of pain associated with respiratory diseases. Some of the most common types of neural blockades for pain management include intercostal nerve blocks, selective percutaneous rhizotomy, and unilateral cervical percutaneous cordotomy. Nerves may be destroyed by drugs, radiofrequency, or cryocoagulation, and other, more destructive, procedures such as cervical cordotomy are associated with adverse effects.

Keywords:   pain management, respiratory diseases, neurolytic procedures, neural blockade, rhizotomy, cordotomy, radiofrequency, cryocoagulation
