Limb Pain

FEPS


Presentation

  • The present project involves the transposition of movements made by amputees' anatomical limb into movements of a virtual limb which is presented in the phenomenal space of their phantom limb.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Neuroradiologic studies are generally unrevealing and rarely indicated in the workup. Laboratory test Laboratory tests have no utility in the diagnosis and workup of blepharospasm.[eyewiki.aao.org]

Treatment

  • Based on reports of prolonged pain relief provided by pulsed radiofrequency treatment for other chronic pain conditions such as lumbrosacral spondylosis, we decided to apply this treatment to the patient's sciatic nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • In spite of reduced symptoms at follow-up, the prognosis in terms of work-status and persisting pain is serious.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis of phantom limb pain The probable outcome of phantom limb pain is poorly understood. It is thought that phantom limb pain reduces or vanishes in most cases in the two years following amputation.[myvmc.com]
  • Prognosis When PLP persists 6 months, prognosis for spontaneous improvement is poor Probably 13. Sensations felt by an amputee 14. A Little Man on the top 15.[slideshare.net]
  • This therapy could have a dramatic impact on the long term prognosis of amputees whether due to trauma, metabolic conditions, tumor, or peripheral vascular disease.[clinicaltrials.gov]

Etiology

  • Determining appropriate treatment relies on establishing an accurate diagnosis of the etiology of the spine or limb pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Author information 1 Department of Genetic Epidemiology in Psychiatry, Central Institute of Mental Health, Medical Faculty Mannheim, Heidelberg University, Mannheim, Germany; Institute of Psychobiology, University of Trier, Trier, Germany.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Desensitization , using TENS, has reduced PLP in multiple placebo-controlled trials and epidemiologic surveys. 2 - 5 TENS is an easy-to-use, low-cost, noninvasive, first-line therapy. 5 Its long-term effectiveness in alleviating PLP remains unknown. 2[mdedge.com]

Pathophysiology

  • A growing pathophysiological understanding is shedding new light on the mechanisms which underlie PLP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Recent appreciation for the contribution of peripheral nerve derangement to the development of postamputation pain has resulted in focus on the role of nerve reconstruction in preventing pain after amputation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
