NCT ID: NCT00373984 Completed - Clinical trials for Post-thoracotomy Shoulder Pain

A Study of the Incidence of Post-Thoracotomy Shoulder Pain

Start date: January 2005
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Patients undergoing chest surgery (thoracotomy) often develop shoulder pain after their operation despite epidural pain control of the incision. We plan to study the incidence of this phenomenon in our institution to determine whether there are patterns that may predict those persons at highest risk of developing this type of pain. Further, we hope to determine whether newer surgical techniques have an impact on the development of this type of pain.
