    Generally, bilateral selective nerve root blocks of the L5 nerve that obtain temporary relief are a good sign that pars repair will help the tingling.

    Caudal epidural is a shotgun approach to the question of an L5 radiculopathy. That injection covers from l4 to S3 so relief is not diagnostic. The bilateral SNRB of L5 is diagnostic so better gives an idea of what surgery would be like.
