  • Background: Opioid-induced hyperalgesia (OIH) is a phenomenon that causes an increased pain sensitization and perception of pain to noxious stimuli secondary to opioid exposure. [...] Key Method This review included randomized controlled trials with objectives to identify OIH in the nonsurgical setting. The clinical outcomes of interest were identification of OIH, adverse events, and impact of OIH on opioid consumption. Results: The search identified 8 studies that fulfilled the criteria.Expand Abstract
