309. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for pain management in sickle cell disease. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for pain management in sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease (SCD), one of the most common inherited disorders, is associated with vaso-occlusive pain episodes and haemolysis leading to recurrent morbidity, hospital admissions and work or school absenteeism. The crises are conventionally treated with opioids, non-opioids and other adjuvants with the risk of developing complications, addictions and drug-seeking behaviour. Different non (...) -pharmacological treatments, such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) have been used for managing pain in other painful conditions. Hence, the efficacy of TENS for managing pain in SCD needs to be reviewed.To assess the benefits and harms of TENS for managing pain in people with SCD who experience pain crises or chronic pain (or both).We searched the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group Haemoglobinopathies Register, comprising of references identified from comprehensive

Chronic pain is pain that lasts for a long time, usually more than 3 months. People may develop chronic pain because of an injury, an infection (...) , a disease, or a surgery—or there may be no obvious reason for the pain. Chronic pain has a negative effect on people’s physical, emotional, social, and mental health. People may try a range of treatment options to manage their chronic pain, including physiotherapy, mindfulness practices, and medications. Spinal cord stimulation is typically recommended if these options do not work to relieve a person's pain. It delivers low-voltage electricity to the nerves in the spine to suppress pain signals

Effect of bilateral scalp nerve blocks on postoperative pain and discharge times in patients undergoing supratentorial craniotomy and general anesthesia: a randomized-controlled trial Post-craniotomy pain is a common clinical issue and its optimal management remains incompletely studied. Utilization of a regional scalp block has the potential advantage of reducing perioperative pain and opioid consumption, thereby facilitating optimal postoperative neurologic assessment. The purpose (...) of this study was to assess the efficacy of regional scalp block on post-craniotomy pain and opioid consumption.We performed a prospective randomized-controlled trial in adults scheduled to undergo elective supratentorial craniotomy under general anesthesia to assess the efficacy of postoperative bilateral scalp block with 0.5% bupivacaine with 1:200,000 epinephrine compared with placebo on postoperative pain and opioid consumption. The primary outcome was the visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain at 24 hr

The Cough Trick Reduces Pain During Removal of Closed-suction Drains after Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Randomized Trial Drain removal after TKA can be painful. Prior research suggests that the "cough trick," in which a patient coughs at the same time she or he receives an injection, effectively decreases pain. To our knowledge, this intervention has not been evaluated as a way to reduce pain during other brief but painful interventions, such as removal of closed-suction drains after orthopaedic (...) surgery.Does the cough trick reduce pain while a surgeon is removing a closed-suction drain after TKA?Fifty-six patients with primary osteoarthritis who underwent primary TKA were randomized into two groups: drain removal as the patient coughed (n = 28 patients; three men, 25 women) or drain removal using the usual process, without the cough trick (n = 28 patients; three men, 25 women). The study groups were not different in terms of gender, BMI, surgical time, or other baseline variables, and other than

Ameliorative Effects Of N-Acetylcysteine As Adjunct Therapy On Symptoms Of Painful Diabetic Neuropathy Painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN) is a variant of diabetic peripheral neuropathy which is highly prevalent and distressing in diabetic patients. Despite its high burden, the optimal treatment of PDN has remained a clinical challenge. To explain the emergence and maintenance of PDN, increasing attention has been focused on dimensions of inflammation and oxidative toxic stress (OTS). Accordingly (...) , the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of oral N-acetylcysteine (NAC), an agent with known anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, as an adjunct therapy in patients suffering from PDN.113 eligible patients with type 2 diabetes suffering from PDN were randomly assigned to either the pregabalin + placebo or pregabalin + NAC group for 8 weeks (pregabalin at a dose of 150 mg per day, NAC and matched placebo at doses of 600 mg twice a day).
