Neuropathic Pain

A Case-Based Approach to Practical Management

a cura di Jianguo Cheng

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 456

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.

Essentials of Interventional Cancer Pain Management

a cura di Amitabh Gulati, Vinay Puttanniah

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 530

This text provides a comprehensive review and expertise on various interventional cancer pain procedures. The first part of the text addresses the lack of consistency seen in the literature regarding interventional treatment options for specific cancer pain syndromes. Initially, it discusses primary cancer and treatment-related cancer pain syndromes that physicians may encounter when managing cancer patients. The implementation of paradigms that can be used in treating specific groups of cancer such as breast cancer, follows. The remainder of the text delves into a more common approach to addressing interventional cancer pain medicine. After discussing interventional options that are commonly employed by physicians, the text investigates how surgeons may address some of the more severe pain syndromes, and covers the most important interventional available for our patients, intrathecal drug delivery. Chapters also cover radiologic options in targeted neurolysis and ablative techniques, specifically for bone metastasis, rehabilitation to address patients' quality of life and function, and integrative and psychological therapies. Essentials of Interventional Cancer Pain Management globally assesses and addresses patients' needs throughout the cancer journey. Written by experts in the field, and packed with copious tables, figures, and flow charts, this book is a must-have for pain physicians, residents, and fellows.

Le correnti a radiofrequenza applicate alla terapia del dolore

Carmelo Costa

editore: Publiediting

pagine: 216

I mezzi per contrastare il dolore diventano sempre più raffinati ed efficaci. I farmaci sono più sicuri e le tecniche interventistiche sono uscite dalla loro fase rudimentale grazie all'aiuto della tecnologia, per trasformarsi in strumenti sofisticati e precisi.L'alcol e il calore lesivo sono stati sostituiti dalle tecniche che, sfruttando la corrente elettrica, riescono a modulare gli impulsi nocicettivi piuttosto che distruggere le fibre nervose. Anche se dovremo studiare ancora a fondo per individuare con maggiore precisione limiti e indicazioni cliniche, oggi sappiamo che la neuromodulazione è un'evoluzione della neurolesione. L'impiego delle correnti elettriche a radiofrequenza con finalità antalgica rappresenta il paradigma di questo percorso. Questo libro si propone di trasferire conoscenza ed esperienze ai medici che intendono curane il dolore utilizzando queste tecniche.
