1 Chronic pain following breast surgery - Do patients have to live with it ? Dr A. Lukas

2 20% 26% KI-AVL outpatient clinic Patientpopulation NKI-AVL outpatient clinic

3 KI-AVL outpatient clinic Patients with postmastectomy pain NKI-AVL outpatient clinic

4 PMPS - Pathofysiologie- 84% 74% 58% Stevens, Pain 1995, 61

5 Postmastectomy pain -Definition- deafferentation type pain syndrome immediately or as late as many months following surgery shock-like pain sensations overlying a more continuous aching and burning accompanied by dysesthesias, phantom sensations worsened by (arm) movement, lying on side natural history variable with subacute and chronic courses possible

6 Prevalence of postmastectomy pain

7 Postmastectomy pain -classification according to Jung et al., Pain 2003 Neuralgia intercostobrachial nerve (20-58%) Phantom breast pain (13-44%) Neuroma pain (23-49%) Other nerve injury pains

8 Postmastectomy pain -Risc factors- preoperative pain and unusual breast sensations postoperative complications surgical technique ( axillary dissection) subsequent chemotherapy / radiotherapy high intensity of acute postoperative pain young age psychological factors ( high levels of anxiety, depression, catastrophizing, somatization )

9 There are more reasons for pain following breast surgery !

10 sleep functioning sexuality fatigue pension / part-time work relationship problems reminds cancer anxiety Postmastectomy pain -factor-x-

11 Postmastectomy pain -Treatment - AuthorYearNTInterventionresult Vilholm levitiracetam 500->3000 mg/4wno pain relief Kalso venlafaxine 18,75- >75mg/4wrelief maximum pain Kalso amitriptylline 25->100 mg/d 50% pain relief at 50 mg NO PATIENT WANTED TO CONTINUE Watson capsaicine 0,075% topical /6w improvement of pain 3 PATIENTS CONTINUED

12 Lymphedema treatment

13 Physiotherapie ( feel & dare ! )

14 Psychological support bodyperception – perceive and accept changes Coping (limitation, mutilation) sexuality anxiety (recurrence) afraid of pain / harm fatigue

15 Analgesia and nerve function following pulsed radiofrequency for postmastectomy pain A. Lukas, H. van Tinteren, S. Linn, E. Rutgers, N. Aaronson, R. Perez

16 Pulsed radiofrequency treatment of neuropathic pain (PRF) Non-neurodestructive minimal invasive treatment option for neuropathic pain (if conservative treatment fails) Single intervention Possibly long-lasting effects if it does not help it does not harm

19 Analgesia and nerve function following pulsed radiofrequency for postmastectomy pain A. Lukas, H. van Tinteren,S. Linn, E. Rutgers, N. Aaronson, R. Perez Does PRF reduce the intensity of PMPS Possible mechanism of action PRF Has the type of nerve-lesion impact on the effect of PRF
