Comparative analysis of the results of the treatment of pain after amputation of the arm



Comparative analysis of the results of the treatment of pain after amputation of the arm



Ortopediia Travmatologiia i Protezirovanie 1991(4): 1-5



Postamputation pain syndrome significantly embarrasses prosthetics. In the article is described the transposition of the nerve trunks of the brachial plexus with terminal neuromas into the formed tunnel under the musculus pectoralis major, applied by the authors at 47 invalids (52 operations) with pain in the arm stump. The results of an operation have been studied in comparison with the results obtained after resection of the terminal neuromas. The data allow to recommend the translocations of the nerve trunks with the terminal neuromas in case of the pain syndrome after an arm amputation as more effective ones.
