NCT ID: NCT03419949 Available - Clinical trials for Acute and Chronic Pain Following Modified Radical Mastectomy

Comparison of Oral Lamotrigine Versus Pregabalin for Control of Acute and Chronic Pain

Start date: n/a
Phase:
Study type: Expanded Access

Breast cancer is the most frequent neoplastic tumor in women, and surgical treatment is indicated in most patients. Complications related to this treatment, such as post-mastectomy pain syndrome (PMPS), a persistent pain that develops after surgery, have been reported. Although the genesis of the pain is multifactorial, sectioning of the intercostobrachial nerve is the nerve lesion diagnosed more often (1) .. Pain relief using drugs with high efficacy provides significant improvement in the patients' lives. Drugs like lamotrigine (LTG) and gabapentin (GBP) have the ability to overcome the symptoms of neuropathic pain (4). Both LTG and PGB have been extensively reviewed in the past for management of painful neuropathic conditions (5)
