painDETECT: a new screening questionnaire to identify neuropathic components in patients with back pain
TLDR
Simple, patient-based, easy-to-use screening questionnaires can determine the prevalence of neuropathic pain components both in individual LBP patients and in heterogeneous cohorts of such patients.
Peripheral neuropathic pain: a mechanism-related organizing principle based on sensory profiles
TLDR
A new approach of subgrouping patients with peripheral neuropathic pain of different etiologies according to intrinsic sensory profiles is presented, which may be related to pathophysiological mechanisms and may be useful in clinical trial design to enrich the study population for treatment responders.
Screening of neuropathic pain components in patients with chronic back pain associated with nerve root compression: a prospective observational pilot study (MIPORT)
TLDR
Screening for neuropathic pain in this setting is feasible with simple questionnaires and scales on PDAs and there were no relevant differences in outcomes between patients using the paper/pencil method versus those preferring PDAs.
The evaluation of neuropathic components in low back pain
TLDR
Its diagnosis and management remain an enigma, mainly because there is no gold standard for either, and accuracy of diagnostic tests used to identify the source of back pain and their usefulness in clinical practice, particularly for guiding treatment selection is unclear.
