  • A wide bore needle is required as triamcinolone is a crystal suspention and is quite thick.
  • Dermal/sub-dermal atrophy or changes in the make-up of the connective tissue and depressions in the skin at the injection site may occur due to the presence of adrenal steroid crystals in the dermis. The skin should regenerate within a few months after all the crystals have been absorbed.

    13. 13. Management – cont… <ul><li>Precautions </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid All weight bearing joint </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid hitting the tendon directly </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid hitting the nerves directly </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid injecting directly in to artery or vein </li></ul><ul><li>Watch for allergic reactions for an hour </li></ul>
    14. 14. Instructions to patient after local steroid injection <ul><ul><li>Inform about post injection flair </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inform about skin and local soft tissue atrophy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Watch for infection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid repeating injection at the same site for at least 6 weeks </li></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Cortisone induced Leucoderma of the wrist
    16. 16. A word of caution: <ul><li>To avoid possible depigmentation and subcutaneous atrophy, intra-lesional doses should not be placed too superficially in easily visible sites in deeply pigmented patients </li></ul>
    17. 17. Soft tissue necrosis
    18. 18. Tips….. <ul><li>Planter fasciitis: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hit directly from the planter surface on the medial calcaneal tuberosity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feel the medial calcaneal tuberosity with the tip of the needle and push it distally so that it can slip over the calcaneum. This the place. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inject the drug and make multiple punctures in the planter apponeurosis. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Massage the site after the injection </li></ul></ul>
    19. 20. Tips….. <ul><li>De Quervains disease </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Start just proximal to the nodule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inject the drug into the sheath </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>See the filling of the sheath up to the base of thumb </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not inject in to the tendons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A tight sheath will give the same resistance as the injection into the tendon – you have to differentiate. </li></ul></ul>
    20. 22. Tips….. <ul><li>Coccygodynia </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Feel maximum tender point </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The place for injection is the junction between the two mobile parts. So do not </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>inject over the bone but inject into the space between two pieces of coccyx. </li></ul></ul>
    21. 24. Tips….. <ul><li>Tennis Elbow </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Always just anterior to the epicondyle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Occasionally over the lateral epicondyle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inject into the soft tissue over the epicondyle anteriorly and not over the bone. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>With the needle hit the bone and then withdraw it before injection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make multiple punctures </li></ul></ul>
    22. 25. <ul><ul><li>Caution : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Temporary </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>skin de-pigmentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Local subcutaneous tissue necrosis. </li></ul></ul>
    23. 27. Contraindications for use <ul><li>Hypersensitivity to ingredients of triamcinolone Preparation </li></ul><ul><li>Systemic infections or local infections </li></ul><ul><li>Infected joints </li></ul><ul><li>Where previous injections have produced local atrophy </li></ul><ul><li>Active peptic ulcer, myasthenia gravis, osteoporosis, acute glomerular nephritis, fresh intestinal anastamoses, diverticulitis, thrombophlebitis, </li></ul><ul><li>Psychic disturbances, pregnancy, diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, </li></ul><ul><li>Acute coronary artery disease, hypertension, limited cardiac reserve , </li></ul>
    24. 28. Triamcinolone is crystalline suspention <ul><li>The duration of effect is inversely related to the solubility of the preparation: the less soluble an agent, the longer it remains in the joint and the more prolonged the effect. Consequently, suspensions are longer acting. </li></ul><ul><li>Crystals of Triamcinolone can be detected in joint fluid even after 6 months after injection </li></ul>
