In this study, 91 adolescents (10-24 years; 78 females) including 30 chronic pain patients with high pain-related distress, 29 chronic pain patients with low pain-related distress, and 32 healthy peers without chronic pain completed a developmentally appropriate T–S learning paradigm. We measured self-reported fear, psychophysiology (skin conductance response), and functional magnetic resonance imaging responses (N = 72 after functional magnetic resonance imaging exclusions). After controlling for age and anxiety symptoms, patients with high pain-related distress showed altered self-reported fear and frontolimbic act...

Most studies of diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) and painful DPN are conducted in persons with longstanding diabetes. This cross-sectional study aimed to estimate the prevalence of DPN and painful DPN, important risk factors, and the association with mental health in recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes. A total of 5514 (82%) patients (median diabetes duration 4.6 years) enrolled in the Danish Centre for Strategic Research in Type 2 Diabetes cohort responded to a detailed questionnaire on neuropathy and pain. A score ≥4 on the MNSI questionnaire determined possible DPN, whereas pain presence in both feet together with a scor...

Persons with chronic musculoskeletal pain may be hypervigilant for pain-related cues which, paradoxically, may be maintaining their pain. Several randomized controlled trials have assessed whether a modified dot-probe protocol (ie, attention bias modification [ABM]) reduces chronic pain- and pain-related symptoms in persons with several diagnoses, including fibromyalgia. Scalability and economic efficiency potentiates the appeal of ABM protocols; however, research results have been mixed, with only some studies evidencing significant symptom gains from ABM and some evidencing gains for the control group. The current random...

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of TEAS for sedation and postoperative analgesia in lung cancer patients undergoing thoracoscopic pulmonary resection.MethodsA total of 80 patients were randomized into two groups: the TEAS group and the sham TEAS combined with general anesthesia group. Postoperative pain levels at six, 24, 48  hours, and one month after surgery were measured using the visual analogue scale (VAS). Bispectral index (BIS) score during the TEAS prior to anesthetic induction, Observer's Assessment of Alertness/Sedation (OAAS) score, sufentanil consumption during postoperative patient‐controll...

Unstable pelvic ring injuries result from high energy trauma and lead to significant morbidity and mortality [1-3]. Patients who survive have an intense recovery and rehabilitation process that is rarely straightforward. A holistic and collaborative team approach to optimize care for these patients is mandatory. Few studies have addressed long term functional outcomes, including posterior pelvic pain, sexual and/or urinary dysfunction, and neurological deficits [4,5]. Concurrent with these physiologic studies, there appears to be post-traumatic psychological factors such as post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, dep...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to identify perioperative patient-related factors that are associated with the development of persistent postoperative pain (PPP) in patients undergoing spine surgery.Recent FindingsTwenty-one studies published between 2000 and 2019 were included in this literature review. The following five patient-related factors were identified to be associated with the development of PPP after spine surgery: anxiety, depression, pain catastrophizing, pain sensitivity, and preoperative opioid consumption.SummaryThe existing literature suggests that the risk factors for developing chronic pain af...

AbstractIt is unclear if anxiety sensitivity may serve as mechanism underlying the relation between posttraumatic stress symptom severity and opioid misuse and dependence among trauma-exposed persons with chronic pain. Therefore, the current study evaluated the explanatory role of anxiety sensitivity in the relations between posttraumatic stress symptom severity and opioid misuse and dependence. Participants included 294 trauma-exposed adults with chronic pain (71.4% female,Mage = 37.79 years,SD = 10.85,Mpain rating = 7.32/10) that reported current moderate to severe chronic p...
