Identification of Neuromas by High Resolution Ultrasound in Patients With Peripheral Nerve Injury and Amputations
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Neuromas are frequent after trauma and surgery, including amputation and can be identified by high-resolution ultrasound. The role of neuromas as the cause of neuropathic pain is uncertain. In this observational cohort study, the investigators wish to explore if the prevalence of neuromas are higher in patients with pain after peripheral nerve injury and amputation, than in patients with the same conditions but without pain.
