Abstract The incidence and clinical picture of non‐painful and painful phantom limb sensations as well as stump pain was studied in 58 patients 8 days and 6 months after limb amputation. The incidence of non‐painful phantom limb, phantom pain and stump pain 8 days after surgery was 84, 72 and 57%, respectively. Six months after amputation the corresponding figures were 90, 67 and 22%, respectively. Kinaesthetic sensations (feeling of length, volume or other spatial sensation of the affected… Expand

InterventionProcedure
Immediate and long-term phantom limb pain in amputees: Incidence, clinical characteristics and relationship to pre-amputation limb pain
TLDR
It is suggested that preoperative limb pain plays a role in phantom pain immediately after amputation, but probably not in late persistent phantom pain. Expand
Non‐painful phantom limb phenomena in amputees: incidence, clinical characterstics and temporal course
TLDR
It is suggested that mechanisms both in periphery, spinal cord and brain participate in generating the phantom limb percept, and both the duration and frequency of phantom limb phenomena declined significantly. Expand
Phantom limb pain in amputees during the first 12 months following limb amputation, after preoperative lumbar epidural blockade
TLDR
Investigating if it was possible to reduce postoperative phantom limb pain by giving lumbar epidural blockade with bupivacaine and morphine for 72 h prior to the operation found it to be possible. Expand
Phantom pain and phantom sensations in upper limb amputees: an epidemiological study
TLDR
Prevalence and factors associated with phantom pain and phantom sensations in upper limb amputees in The Netherlands, and the relationship between phantom pain, phantom sensations and prosthesis use in higher limb Amputees was investigated were investigated. Expand
Painful and nonpainful phantom and stump sensations in acute traumatic amputees.
TLDR
Stump pain and stump sensation predominate traumatic amputees' somatosensory experience immediately after amputation; phantom pain and phantom sensations are often long-term consequences of amputation. Expand
Phantom limb, residual limb, and back pain after lower extremity amputations.
TLDR
The results support the importance of looking at pain as a multidimensional rather than a unidimensional construct and suggest that back pain after lower extremity amputation may be an overlooked but very important pain problem warranting additional clinical attention and study. Expand
A retrospective trial comparing the effects of different anesthetic techniques on phantom pain after lower limb amputation.
TLDR
In patients undergoing lower limb amputation, performing epidural anesthesia or peripheral nerve block, instead of general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, might attenuate phantom and stump pain in the first week after operation. Expand
Chronic phantom sensations, phantom pain, residual limb pain, and other regional pain after lower limb amputation.
TLDR
Phantom limb and residual limb pain are common after a lower limb amputation and for most, the pain is episodic and not particularly disabling, however, for a notable subset of participants the pain may be quite disabling. Expand
Postamputation pain: studies on mechanisms.
TLDR
The present doctoral thesis confirmed and expanded the findings by others that several mechanisms are involved in the development and maintenance of phantom pain. Expand
Phantom Limb Pain: A Review
TLDR
This chapter will focus specifically on chronic pain after limb amputation, which is a painful sensation referred to the absent limb and the onset time of PLP after amputation varies from days to years. Expand

Phantom limbs and related phenomena in recent traumatic amputations
TLDR
Stump pain occurred in 43 percent of soldiers who had traumatic amputations and was associated with phantom pain in 54 percent of these, suggesting phantom pain probably results from peripheral or spinal cord mechanisms, rather than from more rostra1 mechanisms. Expand
Factors determining the persistence of phantom pain in the amputee.

TLDR
It is concluded that it may be possible to predict, at the time of amputation, which patients are likely to have problems with persisting pain in a phantom limb. Expand
Phantom limb pain: implications for treatment of pathologic pain.
TLDR
It is proposed that a portion of the brainstem reticular formation exerts a tonic inhibitory effect on transmission at all levels of the somatic projection system, which would underlie prolonged pain and spread of trigger zones. Expand
A survey of lower-limb amputees: prostheses, phantom sensations, and psychosocial aspects.
TLDR
This survey was to obtain information which would be helpful in evaluating various services delivered to amputees, and to determine whether the patients felt these services were adequate, and whether the patient was happy with his artificial limb. Expand
The Phantom Limb*
TLDR
It is the impression that phantom pain is merely the interpretation of a phantom sensation by certain individuals who show psychopathology. Expand
A survey of current phantom limb pain treatment in the United States
TLDR
A survey of phantom limb pain treatment methods currently used by Veterans Administration hospitals, medical schools, pain clinics, and pain specialists in the United States found only a few treatment methods were even moderately successful when subjected to the criterion of low failure rates after one year.

I.—INJURIES TO THE NERVES, AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES
TLDR
It is found that in a considerable proportion of gunshot wounds of nerves there is principally burning pain, or at least that this is the prominent symptom, while in slight injuries of nerves from compression or contusions, the other forms of pain are more apt to prevail. Expand

TLDR
The restored FRAP activity reflects renewed synthesis and transport of enzyme in still injured neurons, and not central sprouting of intact neighboring afferents. Expand

[Pain phenomena in amputees. Clinical features, evaluation of tests and possibilities of treatment (author's transl)].
TLDR
The clinical phenomena in amputees can be clearly divided into phantom pain, painful stumps and stump pulsation, which is described as a basis for the differing assessments of treatment. Expand
