The preventive effect of trans cutaneous nerve stimulation on acute post operative pain

, : The preventive effect of trans cutaneous nerve stimulation on acute post operative pain. Acupuncture & Electro-Therapeutics Research 5(3-4): 313-321

One lower jaw wisdom tooth was surgically extracted from each of 80 patients under standard conditions, and an attempt was made to prevent postoperative pain by transcutaneous nerve stimulation. The patients were divided into 4 groups of 20 persons. One group (no. 2) acted as controls, while the others received stimulation for 30 min at 100 Hz. Group 1 was given stimulation immediately postoperatively on the operated side in the region of f. [foramen] mentale and angulus, group 3 was given the same treatment postoperatively but bilaterally in the region of f. infraorbitale, and group 4 the same bilaterally and preoperatively in the region of f. infraorbitale. Pain intensity was lower only in group 1, early in the 8 h observation period, than in the control group, the difference at 2 h being significant (P < 0.05). No significant differences between the various groups were seen in the amounts of analgesic (Veralgin) consumed. The method used is not efficient enough for preventing postoperative pain.
