Phantom pain

  Phantom limb pain - one of the most severe pain syndrome. They were first described in 1552, Ambroise Paré, but sadly until now the underlying mechanisms and there quick treatment prospective are not well known. Despite the existence of more than 40 therapies for phantom pain (Sherman et al., 1980), only 15% of patients completely get rid from this suffering, which is probably the consequence of not fully understanding the mechanisms leading to the occurrence of phantom pain.

  Intraosseous blockade have shown the effectiveness on phantom pain syndrome, which allows us to confirm the impact of intraosseous blockades on one of the basic pathogenesis of phantom pain.
