- Perioperative interventions to reduce chronic postsurgical painIan Carroll
Department of Anesthesiology, Division of Pain Management, Stanford School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, USA
J Reconstr Microsurg 29:213-22. 2013..The surgeon, working with the anesthesiologist, has the ability to modify both early and chronic postoperative pain by implementing an evidence-based preventative analgesia plan...
- A pilot cohort study of the determinants of longitudinal opioid use after surgeryIan Carroll
Department of Anesthesia, Division of Pain Management, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA 94035, USA
Anesth Analg 115:694-702. 2012..Determinants of the duration of opioid use after surgery have not been reported. We hypothesized that both preoperative psychological distress and substance abuse would predict more prolonged opioid use after surgery...
- Human response to unintended intrathecal injection of botulinum toxinIan Carroll
Division of Pain Management, Department of Anesthesiology, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA 94040, USA
Pain Med 12:1094-7. 2011..Describe the first reported human intrathecal (IT) botulinum toxin injection...
- Mexiletine therapy for chronic pain: survival analysis identifies factors predicting clinical successIan R Carroll
Stanford Pain Management Center, Stanford University Medical Center, Palo Alto, CA 94304 1573, USA
J Pain Symptom Manage 35:321-6. 2008..Test infusions with lidocaine identify patients most likely to continue mexiletine therapy. Further work is needed to confirm these results and evaluate the relative acceptance of mexiletine vs. other treatments of neuropathic pain...

Department of Anesthesiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94304 1573, USA
Ann Neurol 65:348-51. 2009..02). BTA profoundly prolonged the analgesia from sympathetic block in this preliminary study...
- Pain quality predicts lidocaine analgesia among patients with suspected neuropathic painIan R Carroll
Stanford University School of Medicine, 780 Welch Rd Suite 208E, Palo Alto, CA 94040, USA
Pain Med 11:617-21. 2010..We hypothesized that differing baseline pain qualities (e.g. "stabbing" vs "dull") might define specific subgroups responsive to intravenous (IV) lidocaine-a potent sodium channel blocker...
- Self-loathing aspects of depression reduce postoperative opioid cessation rateJennifer M Hah
Division of Pain Medicine, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA
Pain Med 15:954-64. 2014..We aimed to identify the underlying factors of the BDI-II (affective/cognitive vs somatic) associated with a decreased rate of opioid cessation after surgery...
- Daily cytokine fluctuations, driven by leptin, are associated with fatigue severity in chronic fatigue syndrome: evidence of inflammatory pathologyElizabeth Ann Stringer
Department of Anesthesiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94304, USA
J Transl Med 11:93. 2013..Single time-point approaches potentially overlook important features of CFS, such as fluctuations in fatigue severity. We have observed that individuals with CFS demonstrate significant day-to-day variability in their fatigue severity...
- Management of perioperative pain in patients chronically consuming opioidsIan R Carroll
Veterans Affairs, Palo Alto Health Care System, and Stanford University Department of Anesthesiology, 3801 Miranda Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
Reg Anesth Pain Med 29:576-91. 2004..These patients can be expected to experience increased postoperative pain, greater postoperative opioid consumption, and prolonged use of healthcare resources for managing their pain...
