This randomized clinical trial investigates the possible beneficial effect of autologous fat grafting on postherpetic neuralgia.
Clinically the condition is characterized by a painful, unilateral, vesicular rash. Pain is the most prominent symptom in around 90% of patients. In 10% of patients, this pain remains and becomes chronic.
Post-herpetic neuralgia is a chronic pain syndrome that occurs after the dermal manifestation disappears. Treatment is complex and mainly topical or systemic. For many patients, this is not sufficient and they live with constant pain.
Autologous fat grafting has shown promise in treating several different painful conditions such as post-mastectomy pain syndrome, painful scars, etc. Our previous pilot study (NCT03584061) investigating the effect of autologous fat grafting on PHN, showed a marked reduction in pain with half of the patients being pain-free after the procedure.
The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that autologous fat grafting is more effective than a sham operation in treating PHN.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ultrasound-guided methylene blue (MB) thoracic paravertebral nerve block (TPVB) on the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).
An antiviral that is used in the prophylactic or symptomatic treatment of influenza A. It is also used as an antiparkinsonian agent, to treat extrapyramidal reactions, and for postherpetic neuralgia. The mechanisms of its effects in movement disorders are not well understood but probably reflect an increase in synthesis and release of dopamine, with perhaps some inhibition of dopamine uptake.
Pain in nerves, frequently involving facial SKIN, resulting from the activation the latent varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). The two forms of the condition preceding the pain are HERPES ZOSTER OTICUS; and HERPES ZOSTER OPHTHALMICUS. Following the healing of the rashes and blisters, the pain sometimes persists.
Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.
