The relationship between temporo-spatial stimulus parameters and evoked pain intensity as well as duration was examined in patients with peripheral neuropathy and brush-evoked allodynia, i.e. dynamic mechanical allodynia. Brush-evoked allodynia was induced in the innervation territory of the lesioned nervous structure in 18 patients by lightly stroking different distances of the skin (20, 40, 60 mm) two or four times with brushes of different widths (4, 8, 16 mm). Pain intensity and duration of… CONTINUE READING
