Towards the neurobiology of chronic pain by Towards the Neurobiology of Chronic Pain (Conference)( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This excellent volume provides a well-balanced review of activity-dependent modifications of synaptic efficacy which follow noxious events, and is based on the symposium "Towards the Neurobiology of Chronic Pain", organized in Siena, at the Certosa di Pontignano, on March 4-5, 1994 was made possible with the financial support of Bayer AG and others. The book will contribute to the continuing interest in understanding pain reinforcement by the brain. This emerging new concept can in turn be expected to have a great impact on the development of clinical paradigms of pain prevention and rehabilitation
Pain in the cancer patient : pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy by M Zimmermann( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and German and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pain is unfortunately not an early symptom in neoplastic diseases. When it occurs, however, as it so often does in the advanced stages of the disease, then it can be particularly severe. Many physicians are not able to treat such pain efficiently with the standard methods familiar to them. Even in the oncological clinic, it is common for cancer patients not to receive adequate treatment of their pain; the therapeutic efforts are directed principally at the cancer, the pain often being neglected. This book fills a gap in the literature and should enhance the awareness of pain of all those who deal with cancer patients. For the patient, the symptoms of the disease are usually the direct cause of suffering, and pain is often the most severe symptom. The pain may be potentiated by knowledge of the threat posed by the cancer, or may itself considerably increase the patients existing anxiety. Thus there is a vicious circle of pain and psychological factors which will reduce the patient to a state of despair and distress. It is, therefore, obvious that efficient pain therapy is of utmost signi ficance to the patient, who will judge the doctor's ability to provide medical assistance according to the degree of pain relief achieved. The patient's quality of life will also depend critically on the relief obtained
Phantom and stump pain by J Siegfried( Book )

11 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of phantom limb was described in medical literature at least as early as 1545 by Ambroise Pare, according to the notes in the translation of Lemos' dissertation, "On the Continuing Pain of an Amputated Limb", by Price and Twombly [9]. This strange experience was brought to public attention by a popular essay anonymously published 1866 by Mitchell concerning the story of George Dedlow, a quadriamputee who described his invisible limbs [7]. In 1871 Mitchell wrote under his own name, and was the. first to use the term "phantom limb" [8]. In this work, he also corrected some erroneous beliefs that had arisen from his 1866 essay [13]. Most amputees report feeling a phantom limb almost immediately after amputation of an arm or a leg [11]. It is a positive sensation, usually described as tingling or numbness, which is not painful. The most distal parts of the limb, particulary the digits, thumb, and index, are the strongest and most persisting phantom sites, and may be the only parts to appear even after removal of a whole limb. The elbow or knee is sometimes involved, the forearm or lower leg rarely, and the upper arm and thigh almost never [5]. The phantom thus appears to consist predominantly of those parts which have the most extensive representa tion in the thalamus and in the cerebral cortex

Schmerz : Konzepte und ärztliches Handeln by M Zimmermann( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schmerz ist einer der Angelpunkte der ärztlichen Tätigkeit. Als aku ter Schmerz ist er das wichtigste Symptom, das den Patienten zum Arzt führt und bei der Krankheitsdiagnose entscheidende Hinweise liefert. Der chronische Schmerz dagegen, oft Hauptursache für das Leiden eines Patienten, ist eine der dringendsten und dabei auch schwierigsten Aufgaben der Therapie. Angesichts dieser Wichtigkeit des Schmerzes für den Arzt ist es verwunderlich, daß der Schmerz im Medizinstudium bisher wenig Gewicht hatte. Dieser Mangel wird vom Arzt oft erst während der praktischen Tätigkeit erkannt, wenn er feststellt, daß bei seinem Stu dium der Schmerz zwar in mehreren klinischen Fächern erörtert wurde, daß er jedoch kein für die Praxis brauchbares Konzept für Schmerzdiagnose und Schmerztherapie von der Universität mit brachte. Aus dieser Erkenntnis heraus versuchen wir, mit diesem Buch ei ne Anleitung für eine Lehreinheit über Schmerz im Medizinstudium zu geben. Entsprechend diesem Vorschlag soll der Medizinstudent während eines Semesters im klinischen Studienabschnitt eine inter disziplinär organisierte Vorlesungsreihe angeboten bekommen. Ziel der Veranstaltung soll es sein, dem Studenten aus der Sicht der ein schlägigen theoretischen und klinischen Fächer ein zusammenhän gendes Bild von Schmerz und Schmerzbehandlung zu vermitteln. Die Herausgeber haben im Rahmen einer Ferienakademie der Stu dienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes zusammen mit Prof. Gerbers hagen vom Schmerzzentrum Mainz beispielhaft eine solche syn optische und interdisziplinäre Darstellung über Schmerz gegeben
