Abstract Although the etiology of chronic pain following trauma is not well understood, numerous retrospective studies have shown that a significant proportion of chronic pain patients have a history of traumatic injury. The present analysis examines the prevalence and early predictors of chronic pain in a cohort of prospectively followed severe lower extremity trauma patients. Chronic pain was measured using the Graded Chronic Pain Scale, which measures both pain severity and pain interference… Expand
Acute Pain Characteristics in Patients with and without Chronic Pain following Lower Extremity Injury
TLDR
High pain intensity at time of injury was associated with chronic pain, and the pain trajectory, mean pain score, and frequency of pain documentation was compared between patients with and without chronic pain. Expand
Psychosocial Factors Predict Pain and Physical Health After Lower Extremity Trauma
TLDR
Catastrophizing behavior patterns and depressive symptoms are associated with more severe pain and worse function after traumatic lower extremity injury and Cognitive and behavioral strategies that have proven effective for chronic pain populations may be beneficial for trauma patients. Expand
Prevalence of pain in patients 1 year after major trauma.
TLDR
Most trauma patients have moderately severe pain from their injuries 1 year later, and earlier and more intensive interventions to treat pain in trauma patients may be needed. Expand
Pain following extremity injury: management, predictions and outcomes
TLDR
Six prognostic factors for the development of chronic pain were found, of which only pain severity in the acute phase and pain catastrophizing are potentially modifiable and thus useful to prevent chronic pain. Expand
Predicting pain outcomes after traumatic musculoskeletal injury
TLDR
Significant predictors of the development and maintenance of moderate-to-severe neuropathic pain included high levels of general anxiety while in-hospital immediately after injury and symptoms of posttraumatic stress 4 months after injury. Expand
Quantitative Sensory Testing and Current Perception Threshold Testing in Patients With Chronic Pain Following Lower Extremity Fracture
TLDR
This study suggests that patients with chronic pain following lower extremity fractures may experience hypoesthesia in the injured leg, which contrasts with the finding of hyperesthesia previously observed in other chronic pain conditions but is in accord with patients with nerve injuries and surgeries. Expand
Acute to chronic pain transition in extremity trauma: A narrative review for future preventive interventions (part 2).
TLDR
This narrative review highlights factors placing ET patients at higher risk of chronic pain or protecting them against this problem, and determines how these factors could be addressed in preventive interventions. Expand
Bio-psychosocial determinants of persistent pain 6 months after non-life-threatening acute orthopaedic trauma.
TLDR
Psychosocial factors strongly predicted persistent pain, pain-related work disability, and pain severity after non-life-threatening acute orthopaedic trauma, and these findings may assist clinicians to determine the need for, and likely effectiveness of, individual pain-management approaches in this population. Expand
Predictors of pain severity 3 months after serious injury.
TLDR
Injured patients with a number of factors implicated in the transition from acute to persistent pain may warrant increased monitoring and early triage to specialist pain services. Expand
Determinants of chronic pain 3 years after moderate or serious injury.
TLDR
The predicative power of measures taken in the acute setting is not enough to support discharge screening alone as a method of triaging high-risk patients to early intervention and the predictive power of these combined factors was modest. Expand

Graded chronic pain status: an epidemiologic evaluation
TLDR
Graded chronic pain status was associated with psychological impairment, unfavorable appraisal of health status, and frequency of use of pain medications and health care, and there was considerable heterogeneity in pain dysfunction among persons with comparable pain experience. Expand

Grading the severity of chronic pain
TLDR
A Guttman scale analysis showed that pain intensity and disability measures formed a reliable hierarchical scale and may be useful when a brief ordinal measure of global pain severity is required. Expand
Pain epidemiology and health related quality of life in chronic non-malignant pain patients referred to a Danish multidisciplinary pain center
TLDR
The study confirms the severe multidimensional impact of chronic pain and demonstrates that HRQL of chronic non‐malignant pain patients is among the lowest observed for any medical condition. Expand
Cut and thrust: antecedent surgery and trauma among patients attending a chronic pain clinic
TLDR
It can be unhelpful for pain classification systems to combine surgery and trauma in a single category, and studies are needed to identify the operative procedures associated with the development of pain so that preventive measures can be implemented. Expand
Development in pain and neurologic complaints after whiplash
TLDR
Persistent symptoms in whiplash-injured patients may be caused by both specific neck injury–related factors and nonspecific post-traumatic reactions. Expand
Chronic pain and use of ambulatory health care.
TLDR
Chronic pain status showed a modest correlation with the volume of health care use, and psychologically distressed persons were more likely to report pain at multiple anatomical sites and to report recent health care contact for one or more of the five pain symptoms. Expand
Persistent pain following trauma.
TLDR
With prompt diagnosis and referral to a multidisciplinary pain treatment center, most patients will experience significant decreases in their pain, allowing them to return to the workforce and resume a normal life. Expand
Changes in chronic pain severity over time: the Chronic Pain Grade as a valid measure
TLDR
It is concluded that the CPG is a useful and valid objective instrument for measuring change in severity of Chronic Pain Grade over time and could be used in longitudinal studies of chronic pain severity. Expand
