Ce second volume de la collection « Références en douleur et analgésie » aborde les aspects les plus actuels des douleurs neuropathiques - douleurs associées à une lésion ou un dysfonctionnement du système nerveux - aussi bien dans leur épidémiologie, leur présentation clinique, leurs mécanismes et leurs traitements.

Compte tenu de la diversité des situations cliniques auxquelles ces douleurs peuvent être associées, qui vont des contextes neurologiques traditionnels, tels que les polyneuropathies ou l'accident vasculaire cérébral à des situations cliniques beaucoup plus « banales », comme la lombalgie ou l'intervention chirurgicale bénigne.

Cet ouvrage s'adresse à un large public de spécialistes, mais aussi aux médecins généralistes souvent confrontés dans leur pratique quotidienne à des patients présentant ce type de douleurs. La prise de conscience de l'importance de ces douleurs, confirmée par des études épidémiologiques récentes, leur individualisation en tant qu'entité clinique et diagnostique particulière et le développement de nouveaux traitements, constituent autant d'avancées cliniques largement développées dans cet ouvrage.

Ce livre documenté et actualisé devrait être utile à de nombreux professionnels soucieux d'améliorer leurs connaissances et leur savoir faire face à des patients douloureux chroniques, dont la prise en charge est souvent difficile et aléatoire.

This second volume of the collection “Pain and Analgesia References” deals with the most current aspects of neuropathic pain - pain associated with a lesion or a malfunctioning of the nervous system - in its epidemiology, clinical presentation, mechanisms and treatment.

It deals with the diversity of the clinical situations with which this pain may be associated, ranging from traditional neurological contexts, such as polyneuropathies or strokes, to much more “commonplace” clinical situations, such as lumbago or benign surgery.

This work addresses a broad public of specialists, but also GPs often confronted in their daily practice with patients presenting with this type of pain. Awareness of the importance of this pain, confirmed by recent epidemiological studies, its individualisation as a clinical entity and particular diagnosis and the development of new treatments, constitute clinical advances widely developed in this work.

This documented and updated book should be useful to many professionals anxious to improve their knowledge and know-how faced with patients in chronic pain, the treatment of which is often difficult and haphazard.
