Postoperative Pain Disease Understanding

Postoperative Pain is an anticipated and temporary increase in background pain that occurs following surgical procedures. It is a type of pain that typically lasts less than a few days to months or pain directly related to soft tissue damage such as a sprained ankle or a paper cut. The pain is of short duration, but it gradually resolves as the injured tissues heal. It is further classified as acute and chronic pain based on the duration.

 

The Interagency Pain Research Coordinating Committee (IPRCC) of the US Department of Health and Human Services describes acute pain as “an expected physiologic experience to noxious stimuli that can become pathologic, is normally sudden in onset, time-limited, and motivates behaviors to avoid actual or potential tissue injuries.”

The intensity, quality, and duration of postoperative pain are affected mainly by the location, type, and duration of the surgical procedure; type and extent of the incision and surgical trauma; the physical and mental state of the patient including the patient’s approach to pain; preoperative psychological and pharmacological preparation; type of anesthesia; pain management before and after the surgical procedure; incidence of surgical complications; and quality of postoperative care.

Postoperative Pain Epidemiology Perspective by DelveInsight

The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by the total number of surgical procedures, total number of incident cases of postoperative pain, and severity-specific incident cases of postoperative pain scenario in the 7MM covering the United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan from 2018 to 2030.

Postoperative Pain Detailed Epidemiology Segmentation
