PURPOSE: Increasing recognition of chronic pain diseases, including Fibromyalgia, warrants the need for tools to monitor the impact of the disease as well as the efficacy of interventions. The Revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQR) has previously proved to be a valuable tool in both clinical and research settings. The study objective was to translate and validate the FIQR in Danish. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A forward/backward translation, following the WHO-guidelines, was used to develop the Danish version of FIQR...

BACKGROUND: As the latest endoscopic spine surgery, percutaneous endoscopic interlaminar discectomy (PEID) and unilateral biportal endoscopic (UBE) discectomy have distinct technical characteristics. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical outcomes of PEID and UBE discectomy in the treatment of single-level lumbar disc herniation (LDH). METHODS: Between February 2019 and April 2022, 115 patients with single-level LDH at L4-5 or L5-S1 received PEID or UBE discectomy...

PURPOSE: To examine use of concomitant analgesics and antiemetics during treatment with rimegepant in adults with migraine. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a post hoc analysis of a long-term, open-label, safety study in adults with a history of 2-14 moderate or severe migraine attacks per month. Participants self-administered rimegepant 75 mg (1) up to once daily as needed (PRN) for 52 weeks or (2) every other day plus PRN (EOD+PRN) for 12 weeks. The PRN cohort was further divided based on baseline attack frequency, with PRN (2-8) and PRN (9-14) cohorts having a history of 2-8 or 9-14 attacks per month, respectively...

Scapulalgia or shoulder pain accounts for 16% of all musculoskeletal complaints in the healthy adult population and becomes more common as we age. When this pain exceeds 3 months in duration, it is deemed to be chronic, and typically treated in an escalating manner. Spanning a continuum of conservative and non-conservative measures, chronic shoulder pain treatments range from rest and physical therapy to surgery. Since each patient presents with a unique spectrum of symptoms a customized treatment plan is often required...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral blood flow and vascular structures serve as the fundamental components of brain metabolism and circulation. Acupuncture, an alternative and complementary medical approach, has demonstrated efficacy in treating cerebral ischemic stroke (CIS). Nevertheless, the mechanisms underlying the impact of acupuncture on vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) function remain uncertain. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis is to assess the alterations in VSMC function following acupuncture stimulation in CIS models...

PURPOSE: Patients undergoing arthroscopic hip surgery (AHS) require good analgesia and early rehabilitation after surgery, and there is no consensus on the optimal nerve block. We aimed to compare the efficacy of the pericapsular nerve group (PENG) block with lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) block compared to fascia iliaca compartment block (FICB) in patients with AHS. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 80 patients receiving AHS under general anesthesia were randomized to receive either FICB (group F) or PENG block in combination with LFCN block (group P)...

BACKGROUND: The mechanism of Chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain (NP) remains obscure. This study was aimed to uncover the key genes as well as protein networks that contribute to Oxaliplatin-induced NP. MATERIAL/METHODS: Oxaliplatin frequently results in a type of Chemotherapy-induced NP that is marked by heightened sensitivity to mechanical and cold stimuli, which can lead to intolerance and discontinuation of medication. We investigated whether these different etiologies lead to similar pathological outcomes by targeting shared genetic targets or signaling pathways...

PURPOSE: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is commonly encountered in clinical practice. Diagnostic tools that currently exist include painful provocative maneuvers, invasive nerve conduction studies and the use of tests that require physician's direct participation in an era of sanitary crisis and virtual consultations. Therefore, having an easily accessible, reliable and practical tool for diagnosing CTS would be highly beneficial. Herein, we investigated the diagnostic value of the "pronation compensation sign" that we described for diagnosing CTS...

Clinical management of sacroiliac disease has proven challenging from both diagnostic and therapeutic perspectives. Although it is widely regarded as a common source of low back pain, little consensus exists on the appropriate clinical management of sacroiliac joint pain and dysfunction. Understanding the biomechanics, innervation, and function of this complex load bearing joint is critical to formulating appropriate treatment algorithms for SI joint disorders. ASPN has developed this comprehensive practice guideline to serve as a foundational reference on the appropriate management of SI joint disorders utilizing the best available evidence and serve as a foundational guide for the treatment of adult patients in the United States and globally...

PURPOSE: Postoperative pain relief after laparoscopic appendicectomy is a key determinant of early rehabilitation in children. Recent guidelines recommend performing either a transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block or local anesthesia (LA) wound infiltration as part of multimodal postoperative analgesia after appendectomy. To date, the clinical effectiveness of TAP block versus LA wound infiltration has never been compared. The hypothesis of this study is that the TAP block may provide a greater opioid-sparing effect after laparoscopic appendicectomy in children than LA wound infiltration...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a prevalent complication of multiple myeloma (MM), due to the disease itself or its treatment. Despite extensive research, the optimal treatment for multiple myeloma peripheral neuropathy (MMPN) remains unclear. Clinical practice has shown the potential efficacy of acupuncture in managing MMPN. This study aimed to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the literature to assess the effectiveness and safety of acupuncture as a treatment for MMPN. METHODS: The PubMed, Web of Science, MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, and Embase databases were comprehensively searched from inception to November 1, 2023 to identify relevant studies pertaining to the use of acupuncture to treat MMPN...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to explore the distribution of nerve fibers in abdominal wall endometriosis (AWE) and discern their association with pain. METHODS: A retrospective case-control study was conducted. The cases comprised 30 patients diagnosed with AWE, while the control group consisted of 17 patients who had undergone laparotomy without any history of endometriosis.

PURPOSE: Alterations in spatial attention have been reported in people with chronic pain and may be relevant to understanding its cortical mechanisms and developing novel treatments. There is conflicting evidence as to whether people with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) have reduced visuospatial attention to their affected limb and/or its surrounding space, with some evidence that these deficits may be greater in personal (bodily) space. We aimed to test the competing hypotheses of whether the visuospatial attentional bias is specific to the personal space of the affected limb or generalizes to the personal space of other parts of the affected side of the body...
