Pain in patients who previously underwent flank exploration


Journal Article

Persistent or recurrent pain in the wound of a patient who has undergone flank exploration has many possible etiologies, one of which may be the development of a painful neuropathy. Careful diagnostic evacuation will identify these uncommon occurrences. Pain syndromes refractory to the treatment by a multidisciplinary pain clinic occasionally can be helped by an operative nerve ablation procedure. Strict adherence to diagnostic criteria for operation has effected rewarding results.
