Purpose: Pain caused by osteoarthritis is primarily nociceptive pain; however, it is considered that a component of this pain is due to neuropathic pain (NP). We investigated the effects of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with NP diagnosed by the PainDETECT questionnaire. Materials and Methods: One hundred sixty-three hips (161 patients) were evaluated. All patients were asked to complete the PainDETECT questionnaire based on their experience with NP, and clinical scores were evaluated using the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) Hip Score before and after THA...

BACKGROUND: Better tools are required for the earlier identification and management of orofacial pain with different aetiologies. The painDETECT questionnaire is a patient-completed screening tool with utility for identification of neuropathic pain in a range of contexts. 254 patients, referred from primary care for management of orofacial pain and attending a secondary care centre, were prospectively recruited, and completed the painDETECT prior to consultation. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of the painDETECT to detect neuropathic components of orofacial pain, when compared to a reference standard of clinical diagnosis by experienced physicians, in a cohort of hospital-based patients...

Background: Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition that is often associated with sleep disturbances and fatigue. The pathophysiology of fibromyalgia is not understood, but indirect evidence suggests a central dysfunction of the nociceptive modulating system. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether quantitative sensory testing detects a change in pain thresholds in fibromyalgia patient receiving pregabalin treatment. Methods: A total of 25 patients were recruited for the study and received routine pregabalin, but only 14 patients completed the treatment...

OBJECTIVES: The neural mechanisms of pain in knee OA are not fully understood: some patients have neuropathic-like pain, associated with central sensitisation. We aimed to identify central sensitisation using neuroimaging and PainDETECT, and relate it to post-arthroplasty outcome. METHODS: Patients awaiting arthroplasty underwent quantitative sensory testing, psychological assessment and functional neuroimaging (fMRI). fMRI was conducted during punctate (n=24) and cold pain stimulation (n=20) to the affected knee...

Background: Pain is a common and undertreated non-motor symptom in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Opioids have been seldom used in PD because they could worsen cognitive and motor functions. Objective: We aimed to assess efficacy and tolerability of tapentadol in PD patients. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 21 PD patients treated with tapentadol extended release (ER) for chronic pain. Patients were evaluated before treatment and at 3 and 6 months during treatment for pain intensity (current, 24-hour average, and minimum and worst) with a 0-10 Numerical Rating Scale and the painDETECT questionnaire; for motor symptom severity with the Unified PD Rating Scale part III and the Hoehn and Yahr scale; for cognitive functions with Mini-Mental Status Examination, Corsi's Block-Tapping test, Digit Span test, Digit-Symbol Substitution test, FAS test, Rey's Auditory Verbal Learning test, Trail-Making test A and B and the 9-Hole Peg test; for anxiety and depression with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale; and for the quality of life with the Short Form-12...

The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of neuropathic pain in knee osteoarthritis patients using painDETECT questionnaire, and to evaluate correlations between pain intensity, gender, age and types of treatment, and the presence of neuropathic pain. The study included 122 patients. All participants completed a questionnaire on sociodemographic data, duration of symp-toms, types of treatment and preventable risk factors (body mass index and waist circumference). The presence of neuropathic pain was assessed by painDETECT, according to which subjects were classified into three groups (neuropathic pain likely, possible, or unlikely)...

Background: Pain is a frequent symptom in aquaporin-4-immunoglobulin-G-positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (AQP4-IgG-pos. NMOSD). Data on pain in myelin-oligodendrocyte-glycoprotein-immunoglobulin-G autoimmunity with a clinical NMOSD phenotype (MOG-IgG-pos. NMOSD) are scarce. Objective: The objective of this paper is to investigate pain in MOG-IgG-pos. NMOSD, AQP4-IgG-pos. NMOSD and NMOSD without AQP4/MOG-IgG detection (AQP4/MOG-IgG-neg. NMOSD). Methods: Forty-nine MOG-IgG-pos...

OBJECTIVE: The adequate treatment of chronic pain also calls for measuring its quality not only its intensity. For this reason, this pilot study investigated the non-verbal description of pain quality based on tones, distinguishing between nociceptive and neuropathic pain. METHODS: A nociceptive and a neuropathic pain stimulus were applied to 80 chronic pain patients and 80 healthy subjects. Using a tone generator, all participants matched both pain stimuli to an appropriate tone (in Hz)...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to characterize patients with chronic temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in terms of existing hyperalgesia against cold, heat and pressure. METHODS: The extent of hyperalgesia for pressure and thermal sensation in TMD patients was determined by the use of the painDETECT questionnaire ("Is cold or heat in this area occasionally painful?" "Does slight pressure in this area, e.g., with a finger, trigger pain?") and experimental somatosensory testing against thermal and pressure stimuli (Quantitative Sensory Testing; QST)...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the most common physical symptom requiring medical care, yet the current methods for assessing pain are sorely inadequate. Pain assessment tools can be either too simplistic or take too long to complete to be useful for point-of-care diagnosis and treatment. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to develop and test Painimation, a novel tool that uses graphic visualizations and animations instead of words or numeric scales to assess pain quality, intensity, and course...

BACKGROUND: Cervical spondylotic radiculopathy (CSR) is a relatively common neurological disease caused by the mechanical compression of nerve roots. Limaprost, a prostaglandin E1 derivative, functions as a vasodilator and has been used in the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis in Japan. However, the effects of limaprost in cervical radiculopathy remain unclear. Our aim was to compare the efficacy of limaprost with that of pregabalin, which is widely used for the treatment of neuropathic pain...

OBJECTIVE: There is an association between osteoarthritis-related pain severity and function, yet clear evidence about the sole influence of neuropathic-like symptoms on joint function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is lacking. Previous studies among knee OA patients show an association between neuropathic-like symptoms, lower functional status and lower quality of life, however analyses were unadjusted or had limited adjustment for influential covariates like pain intensity...
