Summary : Background and aims: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a painful, disabling and often chronic condition that usually develops after limb trauma, and it is accompanied by signs of inflammation and sensory, autonomic, and motor disturbances. This pathology remains one of the most clinically challenging neuropathic pain syndromes.Our aim was to test if the co-administration of sub-analgesic doses of morphine and pregabalin induce antinociception in an animal model of CRPS.Methods: Male Wistar rats were used and the Post- Ischemia Pain model (CPIP) was developed by placing an O-ring around the distal ankle for 3 hours (Coderre et al., 2004). The development of mechanical allodynia and hyperalgesia was evaluated on days 7, 8 and 9 after the removing of the ring and in separate groups (n=6-10) the effect of the administration of morphine (0.3-5 mg/kg), pregabalin (10-80 mg/kg) or the co-administration of sub-analgesic doses of morphine and pregabalin were tested at day 8.Results: Rats developed mechanica l allodynia and mechanical hyperalgesia in the ipsilateral hindpaw from day 7. Morphine and pregabalin reduced these painful signs in a dose dependent manner. The combination of sub-analgesic doses of pregabalin (10-20 mg/kg) and morphine (1.3 mg/kg), significantly decreases the allodynia.Conclusions: The co-administration of small (sub -analgesic) doses of these drugs was effective to treat the allodynia which is often resistant to treatment. Since the doses used are small, it is expected that the side effects occur with less intensity.Acknowledgment: SAF2012-40075-C02-01, Lab Dr Esteve SA.

Summary : 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.

Summary : Integrative medicine approach to neuropathic pain treatment u2013 effective pain control with pharmacotherapy and acupunctureKocot-Ku0119pska M, Dobrogowski J, Zaju0105czkowska R, Wordliczek J, Przeklasa-Muszyu0144ska A.AimThe aim of this paper is to present effective pain control with combination of standard antineuropathic analgesics and acupuncture in patient with severe neuropathic pain following traumatic left brachial plexus avulsion. Neuropathic pain after brachial plexus avulsion is one of the most challenging neuropathic pain syndromes for clinicians, mainly due to complex pathogenesis (peripheral and central component) and lack of satisfactory treatment. Standard antineuropathic drugs are effective in less than 50% patients, intervention techniques are not easily available, thus the integrative medicine approach may be beneficial in certain clinical situations.Case historyThe male patient AB, aged 47, had in 2012 a motorcycle accident with polytrauma (brain injury, left brachial plexus avulsion, multiple bone fractures). In 2018 patient was referred to Pain Clinic in Kraku00f3w due to severe, intractable pain of left upper limb.Pain characteristics:u2022tConstant pain (NRS 5) with paroxysms (NRS 10) 10-15 times per day u2022tParoxysms evoked by emotional stress and cold Clinical examination of left upper limb revealed trophic changes of skin, muscle atrophy and weakness, sensory abnormalities u2013 decreased touch and cold sensations.Clinical diagnosis u2013 neuropathic pain due to left brachial plexus avulsionPatient reported that nothing relieved the pain and the pain negatively influenced daily activities.Before referral to Pain Clinic patient was treated with amitriptiline (50 mg OD) and gabapentin (600 mg TID), but ineffectively.Treatment applied in Pain Clinic:1.tIncrease in doses of amitriptyline (75 mg OD) and gabapentin (800 mg TID) u2013 increased doses were not effective, additionally induced side effects, but tapering off resulted in pain exacerbation2.tIntravenous infusions of lidocaine 5 mg/kg OD u2013 not effective 3.tTapentadol 100 mg BID u2013 partially effective, 20% pain relief of pain paroxysms, no AE4.tAcupuncture u2013 30% pain relief (constant and paroxysmal), but only during needle application in HeGu (LI4) pointTreatment continuation:u2022tAmitriptiline 50 mg OD, gabapentin 600 TID, tapentadol 100 mg BIDu2022tacupuncture with semi-permanent needles (Pyonex) inserted in HeGu point (5 days on, 2 days off) u2013 needle application performed by the patient trained by acupuncturist from Pain Clinicu2022tPhysiotherapyResults Clinical outcome:u2022tMild constant pain, not interfering with daily activities u2013 maximum NRS 3u2022t50% less pain paroxysms, less intensity of paroxysms (NRS 6)u2022tBetter functioning at home and better general well-being (patientu2019s self-report)u2022tNo tolerance to analgesic effect of acupuncture observedConclusionsIn clinical settings, especially in patients with intractable, severe pain of neuropathic origin, integrative medicine approach should be always considered, and may result in better pain control and better patientsu2019 well-being.

Summary : Pain Syndromes in Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of painful conditions associated with dysfunction of the peripheral or central nervous system. It discusses advances in three areas: first, the normal anatomy and physiology of pain; second, the pathophysiology of damaged sensory neurons; and third, the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neuropathic pain. The book begins with a discussion of neural mechanisms relevant to pain perception along with a brief review of neuropathic pain. This is followed by separate chapters on hyperalgesia following cutaneous injury; the importance of peripheral processes in the etiology of neuropathic and radiculopathic pain; and mechanisms by which sympathetic efferent fibers contribute to the occurrence of pain. Subsequent chapters cover the diagnosis and treatment of reflex sympathetic dystrophy; pain in generalized neuropathies; surgical treatment of pain; clinical features and management of postherpetic neuralgia; diagnosis of cancer pain syndromes; and drugs in the management of chronic pain.

Summary : Complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS) is a chronicheterogeneous disease with sympathetic neuropathic andinflammatory characteristics, highly disabling, that makes itsdiagnostic coding and optimal therapeutic approach difficult.Then we present the diagnostic and therapeutic approach in aColombian retrospective descriptive cohort study.Results: 63 clinical records were reviewed, in a period betweenJanuary 2016 and December 2018 at Instituto Colombiano delDolor (Incodol) in Medellin, Colombia. Demographic data ispresented in table 1. Mean follow-up in years was 2 (1-6 years)The mean pain intensity score at diagnostic time was 8,4. Only 7patients (11%) receive bisphosphonates. The most frequentopioid was hydrocodone (52,4%) mean dose 17,5 mg/dia (10-35mg/dia). 51 patients receive pregabalin and 8 patientsgabapentin.Interventional pain management favors sympathetic plexus blockover other nerve blocks. 6 patients completed spinal cordstimulation trial with a significant clinical improvement.Conclusion: The diagnostic and management of patients withCPRS are challenging and requieres a multidisciplinaryapproach.
