Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: December 2003

Brief Summary: Severe pre-amputation pain is associated with phantom pain development, and phantom pain models assign major importance to central and peripheral nervous system changes related to pre-amputation pain. Several interventions have been evaluated for phantom pain prevention, including continuous brachial plexus blockade5, intravenous6 or epidural ketamine administration, postoperative perineural ketamine/clonidine infusion8 and oral gabapentin9, but their true effect remains unclear.

Conditions:
  • Phantom Limb Pain
