As part of multidisciplinary management of paediatric chronic pain, interventional pain management techniques can play an important role when pain is unrelieved by conventional treatment modalities. Many procedures and indications are extrapolated from adult studies, and evidence for long-term efficacy in paediatric populations is limited. Interventions range from injection techniques with local anaesthetic and/or corticosteroids to neuraxial blockade with implanted catheters. Paediatric case series have reported benefit in selected patients with complex regional pain syndrome and cancer-related pain.
