BACKGROUND: Pain in cancer patients is a complex clinical problem. Pain is systematically assessed and treated during palliative care, but little is known about how it is addressed before starting palliative care. AIM: This study primarily analyzed pain, symptoms, ongoing therapy at patients' admittance to the palliative care unit, and the relationships between pain and tumor, comorbidities, performance status and quality of life (QoL). Notably, patient satisfaction with the received antalgic therapy was assessed...

INTRODUCTION: To determine the frequency of superior cluneal nerve entrapment (SCN-E) in patients who applied to our outpatient clinic with low back pain. METHODS: Two hundred patients with mechanical low back pain persisting more than 3 months were included in our study. All patients were evaluated with detailed clinical history and physical examination. Ultrasound-guided diagnostic injection was performed in patients who had tenderness on the posterior iliac crest and whose main complaint emerged by pressing on this point...

BACKGROUND: Dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRG-S) has emerged as a novel therapeutic approach for managing chronic neuropathic pain. AIMS: This study aims to compare the effectiveness of 4-20 Hz DRG-S through a retrospective analysis of a cohort of 28 patients with various neuropathic pain etiologies and pain locations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patient responses to both stimulation frequencies were examined using the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) and Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) assessments...

BACKGROUND: Despite a long history of disparities in medicine, women have made significant progress toward gender equity in medical schools, training programs, and many fields in recent years. However, pain medicine has remained behind most specialties in female recruitment and representation. METHODS: We reviewed the latest demographic data on practicing physicians, trainees, and applicants with the aim of analyzing gender trends and identifying potential factors contributing to the shortage of women in our specialty...

BACKGROUND: Facet joint septic arthritis (FJSA) is an uncommon cause of neck pain, most frequently occurring in the lumbosacral spine. Cervical facet joint septic arthritis is particularly rare. Symptoms typically include spinal or paraspinal pain and tenderness, with severe infections potentially causing neurological impairments. This condition can progress to discitis and osteomyelitis. High clinical suspicion is required for accurate diagnosis and timely treatment. OBJECTIVE: To present the first known case of cervical spine FJSA caused by Moraxella species and provide an updated narrative review of cervical spine FJSA...

BACKGROUND: Low back pain (LBP) is a highly prevalent condition that comprise a large portion of outpatient practice, challenging the diagnosis and treatment. However, the diagnostic tools are limited to clinical history, physical examination and imaging. Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a significant cause of LBP, and emerging literature confirms the elevated levels of biomarkers in the discs. These biomarkers may serve as a tool for diagnosis, but may also be useful in predicting the treatment outcome...

This manuscript is designed to complement the previously published primer on salary structures for new pain physicians. The previous manuscript "Employment Contract Financial Models for the Pain Physician: A Primer" had a goal of increasing understanding of financial models by pain fellows when preparing for contract negotiations. This manuscript illustrates the many equally important considerations of "non-monetary" values that are a significant part of contract negotiation outside of salary. It contributes to the overall education for trainees and pain physicians on benefits and job responsibilities...

INTRODUCTION: Persistent Spinal Pain Syndrome (PSPS) refers to chronic axial pain and/or extremity pain. Two subtypes have been defined: PSPS-type 1 is chronic pain without previous spinal surgery and PSPS-type 2 is chronic pain, persisting after spine surgery, and is formerly known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) or post-laminectomy syndrome. The etiology of PSPS-type 2 can be gleaned using elements from the patient history, physical examination, and additional medical imaging...

OBJECTIVES: Lumbar spine surgery is a common procedure for treating disabling spine-related pain. In recent decades, both the number and cost of spine surgeries have increased despite technological advances and modification in surgical technique. For those patients that have continued uncontrolled back and/or lower extremity pain following lumbar spine surgery, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has emerged as a viable treatment option. However, the impact of lumbar spine surgical history remains largely unstudied...

BACKGROUND: Despite the routine use of radiofrequency (RF) for the treatment of chronic pain in the lumbosacral and cervical region, there remains uncertainty on the most appropriate patient selection criteria. This study aimed to develop appropriateness criteria for RF in relation to relevant patient characteristics, considering RF ablation (RFA) for the treatment of chronic axial pain and pulsed RF (PRF) for the treatment of chronic radicular pain. METHODS: The RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method (RUAM) was used to explore the opinions of a multidisciplinary European panel on the appropriateness of RFA and PRF for a variety of clinical scenarios...

INTRODUCTION: Neuropathic pain (NP) significantly impacts quality of life and often coexists with affective disorders such as anxiety and depression. Addressing both NP and its psychiatric manifestations requires a comprehensive understanding of therapeutic options. This study aimed to review the main pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments for NP and comorbid affective disorders to describe their mechanisms of action and how they are commonly used in clinical practice. METHODS: A review was conducted across five electronic databases, focusing on pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments for NP and its associated affective disorders...

INTRODUCTION: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is currently used for the management of pain of different origin, and since its inception, many waveforms have been developed. Some patients experience no pain relief already during SCS trial, while other patients go through a loss of efficacy due to habituation after a variable period of satisfying pain control. Our retrospective study represents the first report exploring the potential role of 10 kHz stimulation as rescue therapy for patients who did not benefit not only from conventional stimulation but even from other waveforms during SCS trial or follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved the first pain medicine fellowship programs over three decades ago, designed around a pharmacological philosophy. Following that, there has been a rise in the transition of pain medicine education toward a multidisciplinary interventional model based on a tremendous surge of contemporaneous literature in these areas. This trend has created variability in clinical experience and education amongst accredited pain medicine programs with minimal literature evaluating the differences and commonalities in education and experience of different pain medicine fellowships through Program Director (PD) experiences...

OBJECTIVE: Many clinicians are unfamiliar with a diagnosis of lacertus syndrome (LS). We investigated the value of the lacertus notch sign in diagnosing LS. METHODS: We included 56 consecutive patients (112 upper extremities) who had neuropathic pain and neurological symptoms of the hand. The presence of LS and the lacertus notch sign in each upper extremity was assessed. RESULTS: Of the 83 upper extremities with LS, 54 (65.1%) had a lacertus notch sign, whereas 29 (34...
