Chapter 9 covers the rubric of chronic postsurgical pain. Complex regional pain syndrome occurring after a surgical procedure may be considered a form of chronic postsurgical pain. In addition, several surgical procedures or types of injury that are repeat offenders in terms of generating postsurgical chronic pain have led to specifically named chronic postsurgical pain syndromes, including postmastectomy pain syndrome, post-thoracotomy pain syndrome, posthernia repair pain syndrome, posthysterectomy pain syndrome, postlaminotomy syndrome, and phantom limb pain.
