Book Description :

Background and aims: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a painful, disabling and often chronic condition that usually develops after limb trauma, and it is accompanied by signs of inflammation and sensory, autonomic, and motor disturbances. This pathology remains one of the most clinically challenging neuropathic pain syndromes.Our aim was to test if the co-administration of sub-analgesic doses of morphine and pregabalin induce antinociception in an animal model of CRPS.Methods: Male Wistar rats were used and the Post- Ischemia Pain model (CPIP) was developed by placing an O-ring around the distal ankle for 3 hours (Coderre et al., 2004). The development of mechanical allodynia and hyperalgesia was evaluated on days 7, 8 and 9 after the removing of the ring and in separate groups (n=6-10) the effect of the administration of morphine (0.3-5 mg/kg), pregabalin (10-80 mg/kg) or the co-administration of sub-analgesic doses of morphine and pregabalin were tested at day 8.Results: Rats developed mechanica l allodynia and mechanical hyperalgesia in the ipsilateral hindpaw from day 7. Morphine and pregabalin reduced these painful signs in a dose dependent manner. The combination of sub-analgesic doses of pregabalin (10-20 mg/kg) and morphine (1.3 mg/kg), significantly decreases the allodynia.Conclusions: The co-administration of small (sub -analgesic) doses of these drugs was effective to treat the allodynia which is often resistant to treatment. Since the doses used are small, it is expected that the side effects occur with less intensity.Acknowledgment: SAF2012-40075-C02-01, Lab Dr Esteve SA.

Book Description :

Neuropathic pain is one of the most common, most debilitating, most costly, and most difficult to treat categories of chronic pain conditions that are characterized by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system. Managing neuropathic pain is challenging and requires skillful assessment and comprehensive and integrated treatment strategies that are mechanism-guided, evidence-based, and individualized. However, these critical and integral elements are very fragmented in the current literature. The mechanistic understanding of neuropathic pain is typically found in basic research articles. Clinical research evidence is presented in forms of clinical trials with emphasis on minimizing biases such as those from patient selection and assessment. Individualized considerations for each patient are usually presented in case reports and problem-based learning discussions. This book overcomes these barriers and integrates all the critical elements around individual patient care into a coherent management strategy that is practical and applicable to daily clinical practice. Rather than compiling what have been published in the literature, this work emphasizes on identifying and highlighting the key points or findings that guide decision-making in clinical practice. It integrates the key points around a typical case scenario that not only represents the core of the diagnostic and therapeutic processes but also allows introduction and differentiation of painful conditions that bare similarities with the case in hand. The overarching goal is to improve clinical outcomes through better understanding of the mechanisms, more accurate diagnosis, and wiser and more comprehensive treatment strategies.

Integrative medicine approach to neuropathic pain treatment u2013 effective pain control with pharmacotherapy and acupunctureKocot-Ku0119pska M, Dobrogowski J, Zaju0105czkowska R, Wordliczek J, Przeklasa-Muszyu0144ska A.AimThe aim of this paper is to present effective pain control with combination of standard antineuropathic analgesics and acupuncture in patient with severe neuropathic pain following traumatic left brachial plexus avulsion. Neuropathic pain after brachial plexus avulsion is one of the most challenging neuropathic pain syndromes for clinicians, mainly due to complex pathogenesis (peripheral and central component) and lack of satisfactory treatment. Standard antineuropathic drugs are effective in less than 50% patients, intervention techniques are not easily available, thus the integrative medicine approach may be beneficial in certain clinical situations.Case historyThe male patient AB, aged 47, had in 2012 a motorcycle accident with polytrauma (brain injury, left brachial plexus avulsion, multiple bone fractures). In 2018 patient was referred to Pain Clinic in Kraku00f3w due to severe, intractable pain of left upper limb.Pain characteristics:u2022tConstant pain (NRS 5) with paroxysms (NRS 10) 10-15 times per day u2022tParoxysms evoked by emotional stress and cold Clinical examination of left upper limb revealed trophic changes of skin, muscle atrophy and weakness, sensory abnormalities u2013 decreased touch and cold sensations.Clinical diagnosis u2013 neuropathic pain due to left brachial plexus avulsionPatient reported that nothing relieved the pain and the pain negatively influenced daily activities.Before referral to Pain Clinic patient was treated with amitriptiline (50 mg OD) and gabapentin (600 mg TID), but ineffectively.Treatment applied in Pain Clinic:1.tIncrease in doses of amitriptyline (75 mg OD) and gabapentin (800 mg TID) u2013 increased doses were not effective, additionally induced side effects, but tapering off resulted in pain exacerbation2.tIntravenous infusions of lidocaine 5 mg/kg OD u2013 not effective 3.tTapentadol 100 mg BID u2013 partially effective, 20% pain relief of pain paroxysms, no AE4.tAcupuncture u2013 30% pain relief (constant and paroxysmal), but only during needle application in HeGu (LI4) pointTreatment continuation:u2022tAmitriptiline 50 mg OD, gabapentin 600 TID, tapentadol 100 mg BIDu2022tacupuncture with semi-permanent needles (Pyonex) inserted in HeGu point (5 days on, 2 days off) u2013 needle application performed by the patient trained by acupuncturist from Pain Clinicu2022tPhysiotherapyResults Clinical outcome:u2022tMild constant pain, not interfering with daily activities u2013 maximum NRS 3u2022t50% less pain paroxysms, less intensity of paroxysms (NRS 6)u2022tBetter functioning at home and better general well-being (patientu2019s self-report)u2022tNo tolerance to analgesic effect of acupuncture observedConclusionsIn clinical settings, especially in patients with intractable, severe pain of neuropathic origin, integrative medicine approach should be always considered, and may result in better pain control and better patientsu2019 well-being. Acupuncture may be recommended due to its low invasiveness, low costs, but high safety and patientsu2019 acceptance.

Book Description :

Pain is a common and disturbing symptom of diabetic peripheral neuropathy which affects between 50-80 percent of the diabetic population. Neuropathic pain is one of the most difficult to treat of the chronic pain syndromes and frequently proves unresponsive with conventional therapies. The cause of neuropathic pain is thought to arise spontaneous ectopic discharge from the affected nerve fibres (Mao & Chen, 2000). These ectopic discharges are aberrant action potentials conducted via the activation of sodium channels (Kim & Chung, 1992; Bennet & Xie, 1988).

Book Description :

Pain is a common symptom of many diseases and is often referred for a physical medicine and rehabilitation consultation. Despite the availability of information on the pathophysiology, assessment, and management of acute musculoskeletal pain, chronic pain still remains an unsolved problem for many patients. Pathophysiology in these patients often remains obscure, assessment difficult, and management frustrating. These issues become magnified when pain, acute or chronic, complicates a primary disabling disease such as spinal cord injury, cerebrovascular accident or multiple sclerosis. To date, the physiatric management of these complex syndromes has not been dealt with in a comprehensive fashion, especially with regard to the relationship of pain, functional status, and quality of life in these patients. Pain Management in Rehabilitation provides a single source that synthesizes information about the diagnosis and management of various pain syndromes in patients with primary disabling diseases. It discusses pain as it relates to various disease processes from the perspective of both rehabilitation specialists and primary care providers. It describes pain syndromes, their assessment and management, in some of the most common impairments seen in a rehabilitation setting. Relevant literature is reviewed, with emphasis on assessment and physiatric management. This valuable text is an unparalleled guide to the successful management of pain in persons with a primary disabling disease, with the goal of preventing physiological and functional decline and the improvement of functional abilities, which in turn lead to enhanced psychosocial functioning and quality of life.

Book Description :

Neuropathic pain is a clinical entity that presents unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. This chapter addresses the classification, epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neuropathic pain syndrome. Neuropathic pain can be distinguished from nociceptive pain based on clinical signs and symptoms. Although neuropathic pain presents a significant burden to individuals and society, a more accurate assessment of resource utilization, costs, and impairments associated with neuropathic pain would facilitate appropriate planning of healthcare policies. The underlying pathophysiology of neuropathic pain is not well defined. Several theories regarding the mechanism of neuropathic pain have been proposed, including central and peripheral nervous system sensitization, deafferentation, neurogenic inflammation, and the wind up theory. Neuropathic pain is a clinical diagnosis and requires a systematic approach to assessment, including a detailed history, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic testing. The mainstay of treatment for neuropathic pain is pharmacological, including the use of antidepressants, antiepileptics, topical anesthetics, and opioids. Nonpharmacological treatments include psychological approaches, physical therapy, interventional therapy, spinal cord stimulation, and surgical procedures. Neuropathic pain is difficult to treat, but a combination of therapies may be more effective than monotherapy. Clinical practice guidelines provide an evidence-based approach to the treatment of neuropathic pain.
