Nerve lesions and secondary hyperalgesia may both be present after surgery, and their relative contributions to chronic postsurgical neuropathic pain (CPSNP) remain unclear. This prospective study explored the roles of these factors in the development of CPSNP after iliac crest bone harvest. CPSNP was defined as pain in the area of hypoesthesia, with a positive Douleur neuropathique 4 questionnaire (DN4) score 3 months after iliac crest bone harvest. The location, intensity, and neuropathic… CONTINUE READING
