  1. Intraspinal analgesia for Cancer Pain Ri 錢穎群 劉耀臨

  2. Indications • The 4th step in managing pain of malignant origin • Unsuccessful treatment with sequential strong systemic opioid drug trials despite escalating doses • Treatment with systemic opioids with effective pain relief but with unacceptable side effects

  3. Advantages • Lower dose than systemic use (1/10 rule for morphine) • Longer analgesic effect • Fewer opioid side effects

  4. Adverse effects and Complications • Same as systemic opioids but less severe • Tolerance Best Practice & Research Clinical Anaesthesiology Vol.16, NO.4, pp.651-665, 2002

  5. Catheter placement • Percutaneous: simple, cheap, risk of infection, high failure rate • Tunnelled: more helpful, providing months of effective analgesia • Implantable programmable infusion pump: expensive, continuous infusion, good daily activity, good quality of life (for long-term analgesia, >3 months)

  6. Implantable intrathecal pump • A multicenter, prospective clinical study • Numeric Analog Scale↓ • opioid use↓ • Opioid side effect index↓ • “breakthrough” pain The Journal of Pain, Vol 4, No 8 (October), 2003: pp 441-447

  7. Intrathecal vs Epidural Best Practice & Research Clinical Anaesthesiology Vol.16, NO.4, pp.651-665, 2002

  8. Continuous infusion vs intermittent bolus Best Practice & Research Clinical Anaesthesiology Vol.16, NO.4, pp.651-665, 2002

  9. single-shot epidural or intrathecal opioids may serve as an indicator to the future success of continuous infusions or patient-controlled analgesia using opioids. • Adequate relief of pain with trial spinal oipoids is mandatory before proceeding to more permanent procedures for long-term treatment.

  10. Opioid agents • Morphine • Hydromorphone • Fentanyl • Meperidine • Methadone • The exact dose comparison for different opioids for intraspinal use is not available

  11. Non-opioid agents • sodium channel antagonist: bupivacaine, ropivacaine • α2 agonist: clonidine • N-type voltage-gated calcium-channel antagonist: Ziconotide • NMDA receptor antagonist: Ketamine • GABA agonist, adenosine agonist, cholinesterase inhibitor

  12. Bupivacaine, Ropivacaine • Local anesthetics • Combination with opioids • Synergistic effect • No significant side effect • Ropivacaine is more selective for sensory versus motor nerves between the sensory and motor blockade

  13. Clonidine • Approved by FDA for epidural analgesia • Action on α2-adrenergic receptors in superficial dorsal horn region of the spinal cord • Combination with opioids • Side effects: hypotension, bradycardia, sedation

  14. Zinconotide • Adventage: no development of tolerance like opioids after prolonged use • Intrathecal delivery provided clinically and statisticlly analgesia in patients with pain from cancer and AIDS • Side effects: confusion, dizziness, urinary retention, constipation, nystagmus, ataxia, convulsion JAMA. 2003;291:63-70

  15. Others • Baclofen • Midazolam • Adenosine • neostigmine

  16. The efficacy of intraspinally administered agents need to be studied in different type of cancer pain syndrome.

  17. Case 1 • 60y/o male • C.C.: face swelling, right flank pain • First admitted on 4/21 • Right supraclavicular lymph node biopsy: adenocarcinoma • Diagnosis: NSCLC, stage IV • SVC syndrome s/p stenting on 4/23 • Discharged on 4/30 • Admitted again on 5/21 due to abdominal pain

  18. Acute pancreatitis with abdominal pain on 5/18, recurred on 6/17 (pancreatic metastasis) • T12~L1 right paraspinal mass, right adrenal mass were noted on CT • Chemotherapy of weekly Gemzar was started on 6/11 • Palliative radiotherapy to the RUL mass was performed on 6/18

  19. Pain profile • Right flank pain since 4/13 • 4/21住院workup,接受biopsy, 放stent • 4/30出院,出院止痛處方: durogesic(2.5mg/patch) q3d codeine (15mg) 1# po q6h naposine (250mg)1# po TID • 5/18出現abdominal pain,來到ER,診斷為pancreatitis

  20. 5/21再度住院,止痛處方: durogesic (2.5mg/patch) q3d codeine (30) 1# po q6h demerol ½ amp IV q6h prn when pain • 5/31 morphine sol. (0.1%) 10 ml po q6h • 6/3 照會麻醉科做epidural analgesia • 6/11 PCEA • 6/15 Intrathecal analgesia (morphine 0.5mg/5ml + marcaine 2.5mg, q12h)

  21. Discussion • The cause of right flank pain? • Oral morphine Titration? • Durogesic的使用? • Demerol及codeine的使用? • Adjuvant的使用? • 考慮使用spinal analgesia的理由 • 更頻繁的疼痛控制評估? • implantable pump?

  22. Case 2 • 75 year-old woman • Chief Complaint: Progressive abdominal distension, poor appetite and weight loss in recent one month • Pain tomography: left flank pain, left lower extremity pain, abd pain

  23. Lt RCC s/p radical nephrectomy, splenectomy, and distal pancreatectomy in 1997-08, s/p C/T • RCC recurrence with iliacus muscle and iliac bone involvement s/p re-op since 2001-09 • Osteoporosis with T12 to L3 compression fracture • Chronic renal insufficiency

  24. Pain Control • ~04-21: NSAID (Naposin) • 04-21: Temgesic 1# SL q2h prn shift to: Depain X 1# HS PO Paramol 1# PO prn Morphine (0.1%) 5cc q6h PO • 04-30: RT • 06-08: epidural analgesia • 06-15: intrathecal analgesia • 06-19: hold IT morphine

  25. Discussion • The cause of pain on injection? • Another way to relieve her pain? • Intractable intractable cancer pain? • Timing of consultation with anesthesiologist?

  26. Encapsulation • Symptoms: • Pain on injection • Increasing need for analgesics • Sign: • Inability to aspirate CSF from the catheter • Increased serum levels of morphine and increased levels of M-3-G in the CSF Pain 1992;49(3):369–371 Pain 103 (2003) 217–220

  27. Palliative Radiation therapy (1) • Biological basis of analgesia following radiation is not fully understood • 75 to 100 percent of patients with diffuse metastatic bone pain respond to hemibody radiation • Pain relief within 24 hours • Nausea, diarrhea, bone marrow depression, fatal radiation pneumonitis Clin Orthop 1995 Mar;(312):105-19

  28. Palliative Radiation therapy (2) • Tumor type and treatment regimen may not predict the response to radiotherapy • RCC of the kidney, non-small cell carcinomas of the lung. • Vertebral body collapse and spinal instability are best treated with surgical fixation Radiother Oncol 1989 Feb;14(2):95-101

  29. Chromaffin Cell Allografts into the CSF • Chromaffin cells in the medullary portion of the adrenal glands • Producing and releasing high levels of opioid peptides and catecholamines • Patients responding to intrathecal morphine • Significant reductions in complementary opioid intake Pain 87 (2000) 19-32

  30. Transdermal fentanyl • Effective alternative to oral morphine • Best reserved for patients whose opioid requirements are stable • less constipation than morphine (Megens et al, 1998) British Journal of Cancer (2001) 84(5), 587–593

  31. Thanks for your attention!!
