Low pain intensity after opioid withdrawal as a first step of a comprehensive pain rehabilitation program predicts long-term nonuse of opioi...
We have evaluated the relation between pain intensity after OW and long-term opioid nonuse. One hundred two consecutive patients with severe CNCP despite opioid medication (mean treatment duration, 43 mo) reported pain intensity (numerical rating scale, 0 to 10), Pain Disability Index, mood (CES-D),...
Bowel Function After Tapentadol and Oxycodone Immediate Release (IR) Treatment in Patients With Low Back or Osteoarthritis Pain.
Constipation is a common side effect of opioid therapy. Tapentadol immediate release (IR) was better tolerated than oxycodone IR in 2 clinical trials involving patients with low back or osteoarthritis pain. The objective of this study was to examine patient-reported bowel function during those trial...
Do central hypersensitivity and altered pain modulation predict the course of chronic low back and neck pain?
We used is unlikely. Future studies adopting other assessment modalities and possibly standardized treatments are needed to further elucidate the prognostic value of WCH and altered CPM in chronic pain....
Central sensitization and altered central pain processing in chronic low back pain: fact or myth?
The purpose of this narrative review is to analyze the available literature concerning central sensitization and altered central pain processing in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP). Literature was screened using several electronic search databases. Additional literature was obtained by refe...
Acute and chronic neuropathic pain in the hospital setting: use of screening tools.
We aimed to evaluate and compare their performance in 2 different populations: outpatients with chronic pain, and inpatients with acute postoperative pain. : Consecutive outpatients attending the Lothian Chronic Pain Service completed the LANSS and DN4. Experienced clinicians independently classifie...
Cost savings associated with early initiation of pregabalin in the management of peripheral neuropathic pain.
: Peripheral neuropathic pain (PNP) is associated with significant economic burden. Guidelines recommend the early adoption of appropriate pharmacological interventions. The aim of this study was to explore whether early initiation of pregabalin was associated with lower economic burden, than later...
A Rasch Analysis of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale Supports its Use as an Interval-level Measure.
: To evaluate the properties of the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) from a Rasch paradigm. : A secondary analysis of 235 patients with work-related pain conditions was performed using the Rasch methodology. Unidimensionality, item fit, location independence, differential item functioning, response...
Adapting the Iconic Pain Assessment Tool Version 2 (IPAT2) for Adults and Adolescents With Arthritis Pain Through Usability Testing and Refi...
: To evaluate usability and pain iconography of the Iconic Pain Assessment Tool Version 2 (IPAT2), a self-report instrument that combines word descriptors and representative images (icons) to assess pain quality, intensity, and location, among adults and adolescents with arthritis. : Adults with inf...
An Investigation Into the Magnitude of the Current Window and Perception of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Sensation at ...
: Strong nonpainful transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is prerequisite to a successful analgesic outcome although the ease with which this sensation is achieved is likely to depend on the magnitude of current amplitude (mA) between sensory detection threshold (SDT) and pain threshold...
Long-term maintenance of response across multiple fibromyalgia symptom domains in a randomized withdrawal study of pregabalin.
To determine the incidence and duration of response of clinically meaningful improvements with pregabalin across several key symptoms of fibromyalgia (FM). This was a post hoc analysis of data from a multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, withdrawal study, originally designed to...
