“Preemptive treatment of phantom and residual limb pain with targeted muscle reinnervation at the time of major limb amputation” is a prospective cohort study investigating the efficacy of targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) for prevention of phantom limb pain and residual limb neuropathic pain. The authors report a dramatic decrease in postoperative pain after TMR compared with standard amputation. This is a striking finding and one that likely will (and should) have broad implications for the acute management of both upper and lower extremity amputations.
