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.

Chronic lumbosacral radicular pain is a challenging medical problem with respect to therapeutic management. Many patients with lumbosacral radicular pain complain of persistent leg pain after transfor...
Pulsed radiofrequency is a non-neurodestructive invasive pain treatment which, in contrast to conventional continuous radiofrequency treatment, does not entail nerve tissue destruction. The aim of thi...
The increasing number of publications on pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) treatment of chronic pain reflects the interest for this technique. We summarize the literature for PRF in five indications: radicu...
This study aimed to explore the feasibility and safety of intratumoral radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in meningioma resection.
Food technologists are always looking to improve the functional properties of proteins. In this sense, in last years ultrasound has been used to improve some functional properties. For this reason, an...
The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with chronic painful knee osteoarthritis experience meaningful and long-term improvement in pain, function, and analgesic use after ul...
Shoulder pain is the second most common musculoskeletal disease in adults, and it often becomes chronic due to treatment difficulties. Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) therapy has become incre...
The aim of this work trial is to compare the effectiveness of blind and ultrasound guided injection for Morton neuroma in order to determine which is more appropriate as the initial proced...
The objective of the study is to assess the short-term and long-term effects of transcutaneous pulsed radio frequency treatment on the physiological status, subjective well-being, and on t...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a device that delivers freezing temperature compared to injecting lidocaine (an anesthetic medication) in providing pain relie...
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.
Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.
