Abstract / Bemerkung
Phantom limb pain occurs following limb amputations and is characterzed by pain emanating from the no longer existing limb. In many cases, this problem develops into pervasive chronic pain impairing the amputees' quality of life. In this article, we describe phenomena observable in amputees and distinguish phantom limb pain from non-painful phantom limb sensations, referred sensations and residual limb pain. We review and discuss research on both the role of the peripheral and the central nervous system and of how they interact with psychological factors. Clinical implications and treatment approaches based on these mechanisms are discussed.
