Chronic postsurgical or post traumatic pain
International Classification of Diseases for Mortality and Morbidity Statistics, 11th Revision, v2020-09
Chronic postsurgical and post traumatic pain is pain developing or increasing in intensity after a surgical procedure or a tissue injury (involving any trauma including burns) and persisting beyond the healing process, i.e. at least 3 months after surgery or tissue trauma. The pain is either localized to the surgical field or area of injury, projected to the innervation territory of a nerve situated in this area, or referred to a dermatome (after surgery/injury to deep somatic or visceral tissues). Other causes of pain including infection, malignancy etc. need to be excluded as well as pain continuing from a pre-existing pain problem.
