CONCLUSION: Data suggest different roles of opioidergic system and their antagonist in pain control and mood in PTSD. However, further investigations need to be done in order to reveal the role of endogenous opioidergic system and opioidergic antagonist system as a mediator in PTSD patients suffering from acute or chronic pain.

CONCLUSIONS: Opiate analgesia can disrupt performance on the Westmead PTA scale in school-aged children resulting in a high false-positive error rate. It is therefore important to record pain medication schedules and interpret results cautiously when opiate analgesia is used following a TBI. Alteration of the method of administration of the memory items should be researched as this may increase the validity of the scale for children with TBI treated with opiate analgesics.

elletti Post-traumatic headache (PTH) may be considered a secondary headache, which is linked to severe disability and psychosocial impairment. Interestingly, nearly 30% of subjects with persistent post-traumatic headache (PPTH) also suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although existing studies demonstrated the existence of common pathophysiological characteristics in subjects with migraine and PPTH, the differences and similarities between these complex diseases are currently poorly understood and are yet to be comprehensively elucidated. Thus, the present review aimed to systematically investigate the ...

Post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PTTN) is a known complication of common oral and maxillofacial procedures. The burden on the patient and society is often underestimated. This retrospective study included 29 patients with PTTN who underwent surgical treatment. Symptoms were differentiated, pre- and postoperatively, into neuropathic discomfort and loss of perceptive function. Clinical and patient-reported outcomes were recorded. The Brief Pain Inventory questionnaire was completed at the last follow-up.

In this study, we examined the relationship between immediate postoperative pain and psychological outcomes at two weeks and three months after discharge in a cohort of pediatric patients who underwentMIRPE. We sought to determine ifimmediate postoperative pain levels were associated with ongoing distress related to aspects of surgery at both time points. We were also interested in how psychological symptoms related to persistent pain concerns. METHODS: Data on patients undergoing MIRPE across 14 institutions was collected as part of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia Improvement Network (SPAIN). Patients were conta...

ConclusionsAmong patients with persistent PTH, erenumab resulted in a lower frequency of moderate to severe headache days in this 12-week open-label trial. In addition, erenumab was well-tolerated as discontinuations due to adverse events were low. Placebo-controlled randomized clinical trials are needed to adequately evaluate the efficacy and safety of erenumab in patients with  persistent PTH.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.Gov,NCT03974360.

AbstractCatastrophizing has been discussed as a cognitive precursor to the emergence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms following the experience of stressful events. Implicit in cognitive models of PTSD is that treatment ‐related reductions in catastrophizing should yield reductions in PTSD symptoms. The tenability of this prediction has yet to be tested. The present study investigated the sequential relation between changes in a specific form of catastrophizing—symptom catastrophizing—and changes in PTSD symp tom severity in a sample of 73 work‐disabled individuals enrolled in a 10‐week beh...

Repeated exposure of naïve and peripheral nerve-injured mice to a snake as an experimental model of post-traumatic stress disorder and its co-morbidity with neuropathic pain. Brain Res. 2020 May 28;:146907 Authors: Mendes-Gomes J, Paschoalin-Maurin T, Donaldson LF, Lumb BM, Caroline Blanchard D, Cysne Coimbra N Abstract Confrontation of rodents by natural predators provides a number of advantages as a model for traumatic or stressful experience. Using this approach, one of the aims of this study was to investigate a model for the study of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-related behaviour in...
