The potential role of brain stimulation in the management of postoperative pain (pp. 295-300) $45.00
Authors:  (Jeffrey J. Borckardt, Scott Reeves and Mark S. George)
Abstract:
There is limited evidence to date of the effectiveness of
minimally-invasive brain stimulation in controlling postoperative
pain. Two studies have provided preliminary
evidence that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can
significantly reduce post-operative pain, and no studies
have been published on the effects of transcranial direct
current stimulation (tDCS) on postoperative pain. The
evidence supporting the role of brain stimulation in
producing general anesthetic effects is also limited but there
is a possibility that appropriately targeted electrical
stimulation might have a role in the future if the technology
permits such stimulation in a non-invasive manner. The
present article provides a brief overview of the available
evidence supporting the role of minimally invasive brain
stimulation technology in perioperative medicine. More
studies and well-controlled trials are needed to establish a
clear role for minimally-invasive brain stimulation
technologies in the perioperative arena.
