For example, less intense post-mastectomy pain in the acute phase after surgery may be associated with reduced chronic neuropathic pain. Prevention should therefore focus on the immediate post-operative phase, though this requires detailed confirmation. Counselling or other psychological interventions aimed at the reduction of distress might also be effective in reducing chronic pain after surgery or amputation. Again, confirmation is required through clinical trials, and these are active or planned in several locations.

However, both electrical stimulation methods bypass the receptors adjacent to the nerve fibre terminals in the skin and test mainly for the performance of thickly myelinated Aβ fibres. Laserevoked potentials (LEP) close this gap by stimulating Aδ as well as C fibres of the skin resulting in brain activity that can be recorded similar to a SEP. Microneurography is only available in a few specialized centres and this technique allows the function of all relevant sensory nerve fibres, including the peripheral performance of C and Aδ fibres, to be characterised.

Good epidemiological research can also provide the basis for the design of clinical trials, including adequate power calculations. 1 Historical estimates In 1991, a British paper suggested that the prevalence of neuropathic pain in the UK general population was probably about 1%, though this was based on estimates rather than direct evidence. A similar, though more detailed approach in the USA derived a broadly similar estimate in 1997. However, these global calculations are likely to be inaccurate, based as they are on a series of estimates of variable validity.
