This protocol is a pilot study on standard care. The main goal is to assess the impact of positioning on lumbar puncture process especially on pain sensitivity in children.
It's a prospective, monocentric, randomized, open-label, cross-over study. Inclusion period is one year, and number of inclusions forecasted is about 30. Each patient will have one LP in a seated position and one in a lying position.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hematological Malignancies||Other: LP in a seated position then LP in a lying position Other: LP in a lying position then LP in a seated position||Not Applicable|
In Pediatric Oncology Hematology, invasive procedures such lumbar punctures or myelograms are essential to diseases diagnosis and treatment.
In hematological malignancies, lumbar punctures are particularly frequent as the therapy processes. Despite a good analgesia, this repeated procedure can generate pain, anxiety, apprehension leading to an increasing difficulty in the procedure realization.
Two positions are possible to carry out lumbar puncture: seated or lying position.
The main goal of this study is to assess the impact of the child positioning during the lumbar puncture process in term of pain, anxiety and stress.
This study is a prospective, monocentric, randomized, open-label, cross-over study. Inclusion period is 1 year, 30 patients will be included from 2 to 18 years old.
Each patient will have 2 LP one in seated and one in lying position in a specific order determined by randomization.
All data regarding pain and anxiety will be collected the day of LP. Patients will be re contacted 48 hours and 15 days after LP procedure in order to evaluate complications such post-lumbar puncture syndrome or hematoma. The main analysis will be done on intent-to-treat-analysis basis and will compare pain intensity between the two groups.

LP in a seated position then LP in a lying position
Patients will have first a lumbar puncture (LP) in a seated position then a LP in a lying position
Other: LP in a seated position then LP in a lying position
LP in a lying position then LP in a seated position
Patients will have first a lumbar puncture (LP) in a lying position then a LP in a seated position
Other: LP in a lying position then LP in a seated position
- Pain sensitivity during the lumbar puncture procedure. [ Time Frame: duration of the procedure ]It will be evaluated throw specific pain assessment scales according to patient age
- Anxiety during the lumbar puncture procedure on a scale of one to ten [ Time Frame: duration of the procedure ]
- Time of the lumbar puncture procedure [ Time Frame: duration of the procedure ]
