    Concept of acute neuropathic pain. The role of nervi nervorum in the
    distinction between acute nociceptive and neuropathic pain

    Manoel Jacobsen Teixeira, Daniel Benzecry Almeida, Lin Tchia Yeng - Revista Dor 2016

    ABSTRACT
    Several pathophysiological mechanisms are involved in the genesis of neuropathic pain.
    However, available justifications for its onset are unsatisfying and do not explain the
    participation of nervi nervorum and nervi vasorum abnormalities on functional aberrations
    which characterize pain generated by injuries to the peripheral nervous system. There
    are evidences that nervi nervorum contribute to the development and justify
    many clinical findings and prophylactic, therapeutic and rehabilitation alternatives
    related to neuropathic pain. This study aimed at presenting a review of
    anatomic and functional studies and theories about their objectives and at giving
    examples of conditions in which nervi nervorum have markedly participated in
    neuropathic pain generation and maintenance.

    CONTENTS: Nervi nervorum are a set of unmyelinated or poorly myelinated
    fibers located in peripheral nerves sheaths which, among other functions, seem
    to participate in the transmission of evoked sensory information and in the environmental
    regulation of peripheral nervous system structures.

    CONCLUSION: Nervi nervorum structural and functional abnormalities may
    contribute to the onset, maintenance and worsening of neuropathic pain and
    “demodulatory” painful syndromes. Further studies, especially with the application
    of more specific and sensitive histological, biochemical and electrophysiological
    methods are necessary to clarify the realities of their biologies.
