Example text

Microglial activation occurs only following C fiber neuropathic injury and is not typically seen following peripheral inflammation. DYNAMIC TRAFFICKING A variety of pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves, sensory ganglia, spinal roots, and CNS structures can induce neuropathic pain. When an axon is severed, the proximal stump (attached to the cell body) seals off, forming a terminal swelling OF PAIN ‘endbulb’. Within a day or two, numerous fine processes (‘sprouts’) start to grow out from the endbulb.

E. 37 Successful pre-emptive analgesia must meet three criteria: (1) intense enough to block all nociception, (2) wide enough to cover the entire surgical area, and (3) prolonged enough to last throughout surgery and even into the postoperative period. It is important to note that adequate levels of general anesthesia with a volatile drug such as isoflurane do not prevent central sensitization. The potential for central sensitization exists even in unconscious patients who are unresponsive to surgical stimuli.

A suggested mechanism for referred pain is that visceral and somatic primary neurons converge on to common spinal neurons (34). 86 To better explain ‘referred pain with somatic hyperalgesia’, two theories have been proposed. The convergence–facilitation theory proposes that abnormal visceral input would produce an irritable focus in the relative spinal cord segment, thus facilitating messages from somatic structures. The second postulates that the visceral afferent barrage induces the activation of a reflex arc, the afferent branch of which is presented by visceral afferent fibers and the efferent branch by somatic efferents and sympathetic efferents toward the somatic structures (muscle, subcutis, and skin).
