Sympathetic sprouting in the dorsal root ganglia of the injured peripheral nerve in a rat neuropathic pain model
The extent of the sprouting of sympathetic postganglionic fibers in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and the peripheral nerves was examined in neuropathic rats at different postoperative times. AfterExpand

Contributions of injured and intact afferents to neuropathic pain in an experimental rat model
&NA; This study was conducted to determine the contribution of peripheral inputs from injured and intact afferent fibers to behavioral signs of neuropathic pain, using a previously developedExpand

Kinesio Taping Improves Pain, Range of Motion, and Proprioception in Older Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Objective This study investigated the short-term effects of Kinesio taping (KT) on various types of pain, active range of motion (AROM), and proprioception in patients with knee osteoarthritis.Expand

Effects of age on behavioral signs of neuropathic pain in an experimental rat model
The present study examined the effect that aging has on the manifestations of pain behaviors in a rat model of neuropathic pain. Two experiments were conducted. The first experiment compared young,Expand

Different strains and substrains of rats show different levels of neuropathic pain behaviors
Abstract This study compared and contrasted the manifestation of neuropathic pain behaviors in several strains of rats. These included ACI, Brown-Norway, Fischer 344, Lewis, Long-Evans,Expand

Comparison of sympathetic sprouting in sensory ganglia in three animal models of neuropathic pain
Abstract Sympathetic postganglionic fibers sprout in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) after peripheral nerve injury. Therefore, one possible contributing factor of sympathetic dependency of neuropathicExpand

Supraspinal involvement in the production of mechanical allodynia by spinal nerve injury in rats
This study examined whether or not the production of mechanical allodynia in a rat model of neuropathic pain required an involvement of supraspinal site(s). To this aim, we assessed the effect ofExpand

Effects of morphine on mechanical allodynia in a rat model of central neuropathic pain
&NA; We examined whether morphine reduced the behavioral signs of neuropathic pain below level induced byT13 spinal hemisection in rats. In order to examine the effect of morphine on the mechanicalExpand

Ventricular premature beat-driven intermittent restoration of coronary blood flow reduces the incidence of reperfusion-induced ventricular fibrillation in a cat model of regional ischemia.
With a cat model of regional cardiac ischemia, we examined whether the incidence of reperfusion-induced ventricular fibrillation (VF) could be reduced by ventricular premature beat (VPB)-drivenExpand

Loss of dorsal root ganglion cells concomitant with dorsal root axon sprouting following segmental nerve lesions
Tight ligation of the fifth and sixth lumbar segmental nerves in the rat provides a model of neuropathic pain. We used this model to assess the changes in primary afferent input to the dorsal horn inExpand
