FYI, limitations are being proposed for Epidural Injection as treatment option for chronic pain This proposed LCD on Epidural Procedures for Pain Management services was announced on June 10, 2021. This nationwide policy contains many onerous changes that will detrimentally affect patient access to care. ASIPP is aware and already contacting congress members, but getting your patients to complain can also help. Please see below for important points but one of the bigger points... Read more

ConclusionsThere exist children with cancer whose pain is refractory to the standard approaches and may benefit from IT drug delivery. The existing data, although limited and of low tier evidence, suggest that IT drug delivery has been effective in the pediatric cancer population.
Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol. 2021 Sep 15. doi: 10.1152/ajpgi.00482.2020. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTChronic pancreatitis (CP) is a complex inflammatory disorder with numerous associated genetic and environmental risk factors. The most distressing characteristic of CP is recalcitrant pain, often requiring surgical resection including total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation (TPIAT). We studied 5 consented subjects undergoing pancreatic resection and processed isolated cells for single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-Seq). Using high-dimensional transcriptomic cluster analysis we identified eleven unique...

This study included patients who were 45 yr of age or older who underwent major inpatient noncardiac surgery. Data were collected perioperatively and at 1 yr after surgery to assess for the development of persistent incisional pain (pain present around incision at 1 yr after surgery).ResultsAmong 14,831 patients, 495 (3.3%; 95% CI, 3.1 to 3.6) reported persistent incisional pain at 1 yr, with an average pain intensity of 3.6 ± 2.5 (0 to 10 numeric rating scale), with 35% and 14% reporting moderate and severe pain intensities, respectively. More than half of patients with persistent pain reported needing analgesic me...
Conclusions: We provided by far the first study to profile gene expression changes and pathway analysis of contralateral DRG for investigating MIP mechanisms. This work may provide novel insights into understanding the mysterious mechanisms underlying MIP.
The goal of this study was an assessment of availability postoperative pain management quality measures and National Quality Forum –endorsed measures. Postoperative pain is an important clinical timepoint because poor pain control can lead to patient suffering, chronic opiate use, and/or chronic pain. Quality measures can guide best practices, but it is unclear whether there are measures for managing pain after surgery.
