Neuro ablation devices in the current practices can be categorised into chemical and physical (electromagnetic and thermal) neurolysis. Both of these methods produce nerve injury and result in the degeneration of nerve fibres form the distal to the lesion along with its myelin sheath, also known as "Wallerin degeneration." In clinical practice, neuro ablation devices lead to nerve regeneration after ablation based on the thickness of the tactile sense, motor, proprioception, temperature, pain and sympathetic tone.
Five of them had hand operations that were not billed for at all by the hospital (debridement and reduction of open fracture, debridement and removal of foreign body, debridement of deep septic wound, debridement and arthrotomy for joint-penetrating wound, and debridement with digital neurolysis and closure of wound).

Different percutaneous techniques including RF neurolysis, balloon compression, glycerol or alcohol neurolysis, and MVD are presently used to manage trigeminal neuralgia, but no consensus has been reached so far concerning best possible modality.
This approach can allow undercutting of the facet joint (ventral facetectomy), discectomy, mobilization, neurolysis of the exiting and traversing nerve roots, and ablation of osteophytes.
The methods such as ablative procedures, sacral neuromodulation, neurolysis, hysterectomy, vulvar, vestibular surgery, resection, and prostatectomy are applied.[8]
Internal neurolysis from distal to proximal with the intention of mobilizing the AIN fascicles, in order to perform a tension free transfer, was necessary in 27% of the limbs.
HAM as a biologic matter has been used for wound healing of abdominal adhesiolysis, tenolysis, neurolysis, and injuries of the dura-mater and vagina for many years.
The new ladder integrates fourth step into the ladder which includes invasive technique and neurolysis. It can be used for acute pain in postoperative situation.
A radiological procedure designed for easing incessant abdominal pain is a CT-guided coeliac plexus neurolysis, or block, to disrupt the sensory nerve impulses at the level of the coeliac plexus or splanchnic nerves (Kambadakone, Thabet, Gervais, Mueller, & Arellano, 2011).
The surgery involved whole decompression and partial neurolysis of nervous structures for most patients, while nearly 20% of women required complete neurolysis based on their level of infiltration.
