Pain Management

The US FDA just passed a sTMS  new device for migraine prevention. In 2014, the neuromodulation device was approved by the FDA and accepted for acute and preventive treatment in 2014 and 2016, respectively the CE mark in Europe. According to the manufacturer, the device is currently the only product, drug or device approved for the acute treatment of a migraine and the prevention of a chronic migraine and episodic.

New research shows, Children with migraines experience central sensitisation involving changes in the central nervous system, linked to pericranial tenderness and juvenile fibromyalgia. Central sensitisation includes when a patient experience increased sensitivity and feel pain with less provocation is a common by-product of a migraine attack. The clinical manifestation of central sensitisation, Allodynia (pain following ordinarily nonpainful, often repetitive, stimulation) is present in 90% of chronic migraine patients and 70% of episodic migraine patients.

Even though it is extensively obtained that for trigeminal neuralgia, facial pain paroxysms triggered by innocuous stimuli constitute a hallmark sign, very few evaluations to explain that systematically investigated the triggers role which involved. In the published diagnostic classification, for the diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia triggered pain is an essential criterion, but no study to address this issue directly to date has been depicted.

A migraine is described as a primary headache is order and is a frequent condition. It produces a problem that is moderate to severe, and that is pulsating, one-sided, and capable of last few hours. A migraine strike can be incredibly painful and debilitating and confine their duration for the recipient to a darkened room.

Hernia restoration is a general surgical approach with little postoperative complications, but some of the patients continue to tolerate chronic postoperative pain and discomfort for several months to years. As many of the studies govern the role of Pregabalin in post-surgical pain management, this analysis evaluates this drug efficacy and safety in managing post-Lichtenstein herniorrhaphy pain.
 

A gamma-aminobutyric acid analog, pregabalin shows excellent efficacy in maintaining different neuropathic pains, as well as in inflammatory and incisional injuries.

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG), the cluster of nerve cells connected to the trigeminal nerve, the main nerve participating in headache pain disorders. Regional anaesthetic suprazygomatic SPG block is a simple and effective approach for quick relief of Status migrainosus (SM) with minimal risk.

Various modalities provide postoperative analgesia in breast cancer surgeries for example opiates, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, wound infiltration with local anaesthetic agents, thoracic epidural, and paravertebral blocks. This randomized study explored the efficacy of dexmedetomidine regarding prolonged duration and improved quality of postoperative analgesia further supporting bupivacaine in pecs I and II blocks.

Dexmedetomidine has been proved to be safe and efficacious in sustaining the duration of peripheral nerve blocks.

This study explained that the Posterior approach TAP block (PTAP) provided a sensory block that involved a greater number of dermatomes and involvement of more cephalad dermatome blocked to sharp touch as compared to the Lateral approach TAP block (LTAP) under US guidance. The posterolateral spread of the local analgesic agent to the paravertebral space might be linked to the high number of dermatomes.

Ultrasound (US)-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is used as a part of a multimodal analgesic regimen in the postoperative period.

Osteoporotic vertebral fracture (VF) is considered a fracture of one or more vertebrae and related to the high rates of mortality and morbidity as well. This raises the importance of diagnosis as soon as possible. The study reflects the different method's efficacy and anticipates modified algorithm-based qualitative (mABQ) approach as a leading approach for vertebral fracture (VF) management.

Two methods for osteoporotic VF assessment on lateral spine radiographs, the Genant semiquantitative (GSQ) technique and a modified algorithm-based qualitative (mABQ) approach were compared.
