Pulsed Radiofrequency Under Ultrasound Guidance for Persistent Stump-Neuroma Pain.

13:28 EDT 22nd July 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Pulsed Radiofrequency Under Ultrasound Guidance for Persistent Stump-Neuroma Pain."

Abstract Limb amputation is a leading cause of pain and disability. Limb amputation can be associated with a myriad of symptoms, including phantom limb sensation, phantom limb pain, and stump pain. Treatment of phantom limb pain and stump pain, remains difficult, therefore optimal management must include a multidisciplinary approach. This case report describes the use of ultrasound for diagnosis and successful management, of persistent stump-neuroma pain, using pulsed radiofrequency ablation.
