pain related with tissue injury is termed as neuropathic pain. Neurosurgery plays a huge
impact on such neuropathic
pain. The impact of nerve fibre injury includes a change in nerve function
both at the site of injury and areas around the injury. Nerve pressure or nerve
damage after surgery or trauma along with viral infections, cancer, and even
vascular malformations, alcoholism, neurological conditions
such as multiple sclerosis
and metabolic conditions such as diabetes are the common cause of neuropathic pain.
Peripheral neuropathic pain, central neuropathic pain, or mixed
(peripheral and central) neuropathic
pain are the three-basic mechanism of neuropathic pain.
Statistics says that 7- 8% of the European population is affected, out of which
5% of patients are severely traumatized. Anti-epileptics, Antidepressants,
Opioids, Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and percutaneous
electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) are the few treatment processes for neuropathic pain.
