There are no studies as yet specifically investigating the application of DRG stimulation in the treatment of chronic pain affecting the upper limbs. The investigators propose to investiga...
ACTIVE study- a prospective observational clinical study examining the changes in quality of life and pain following dorsal root ganglion stimulation for the treatment of chronic intractab...
The purpose of this prospective, multicenter, single arm, observational post-approval study is to demonstrate continued safety of the Axium Neurostimulator System for dorsal root ganglion ...
The primary objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that direct dorsal column stimulation is safe in the treatment of medically refractory, chronic neuropathic pain. The study w...
The purpose of this study is to examine the potential changes in levels of pain, quality of life (QoL) and activities of daily living (ADL) observed when transforaminal epidural steroid in...
Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is an elusive and complex neuropathic condition that is notoriously recalcitrant to treatment. The term "CPP" encompasses a number of treatment-resistant conditions like pude...
1,8-cineole is a natural monoterpene cyclic ether present in eucalyptus and has been reported to exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. The therapeutic effects of 1,8-cineole on neuropathi...
To evaluate the role of CX3CL1 and NF-κB in the lumbar disc herniation induced neuropathic pain.
Neuropathic pain is a severe debilitating state caused by injury or dysfunction of somatosensory nervous system, and the clinical treatment is still challenging. Translocation associated membrane prot...
A group of inherited disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. There are five subtypes. Type I features autosomal dominant inheritance and distal sensory involvement. Type II is characterized by autosomal inheritance and distal and proximal sensory loss. Type III is DYSAUTONOMIA, FAMILIAL. Type IV features insensitivity to pain, heat intolerance, and mental deficiency. Type V is characterized by a selective loss of pain with intact light touch and vibratory sensation. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, pp142-4)
Method of treating pain associated with the sphenopalatine ganglion located in the PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA, posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The transnasal approach involves application of suitable local anesthetic to the mucous membrane overlying the ganglion.
The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion. It then is periodically reactivated throughout life causing mostly benign conditions.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype found in the neurons of the NERVOUS SYSTEM and DORSAL ROOT GANGLIA. It may play a role in the generation of heat and mechanical pain hypersensitivity.
A widely distributed purinergic P2X receptor subtype that plays a role in pain sensation. P2X4 receptors found on MICROGLIA cells may also play a role in the mediation of allodynia-related NEUROPATHIC PAIN.
