Pathway of Pain

  1. 1. 4/5/2014
  2. 2. 4/5/2014 ‘PATHWAY OF PAIN’ ORAL BIOLOGY PRESENTATION

  4. 4. 4/5/2014
  5. 5. 4/5/2014 ‘PAIN’ An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience which we primarily associate with tissue damage or describe in terms of such damage, or both.
  6. 6. 4/5/2014
  7. 7. 4/5/2014
  8. 8. 4/5/2014 ‘NOCICEPTION’ The detection of tissue damage by specialized transducers connected to A- delta and C-fibers.
  9. 9. 4/5/2014 CHARACTERISTICS OF PRIMARY AFFERENT FIBRES A-DELTA FIBER: • Myelinated • Diameter fine 2 - 5 μm • 12 - 30 m/sec. conduction velocity • Terminated at I and V layer • Fast pain, rapid, pricking and well localized • Neurotransmitter - Glutamate • 20% pain conduction
  10. 10. 4/5/2014 CHARACTERISTICS OF PRIMARY AFFERENT FIBRES C-FIBER: • Non-Myelinated • Diameter less than 2 films • -0.5 to 2 m/s conduction velocity • Terminate in I and n layers • Slow, diffuse, dull, aching
  11. 11. 4/5/2014 CLASSIFICATION OF PAIN NOCICEPTION • Proportionate to the stimulation of the nociceptor. • When acute •Physiologic pain •Serves a protective function •Normal pain • when chronic •Pathologic pain
  12. 12. 4/5/2014 ‘CLASSIFICATION OF PAIN’
  13. 13. 4/5/2014 NEUROPATHIC PAIN: • Sustained by aberrant processes in PNS or CNS • Disproportionate to the stimulation of nociceptor • Serves no protective function • Pathologic pain
  14. 14. 4/5/2014 MIXED PAIN: • Nociceptive components • Neuropathic components • Examples: • Failed low-back-surgery syndrome • Complex regional pain syndrome
  15. 15. 4/5/2014 IDIOPATHIC PAIN: • No underlying lesion found yet, despite investigation • Pain disproportionate to the degree of clinically discernible tissue injury

  22. 22. 4/5/2014 DORSAL HORN GATING MECHANISM
  23. 23. 4/5/2014 Neuronal circuitry within the dorsal horn. Primary afferent neuron axons synapse onto spinothalmic neurons and onto inhibitory and excitatory neurons.

  25. 25. 4/5/2014 ‘FACIAL PAIN’
  26. 26. 4/5/2014 CAUSES OF FACIAL PAIN
  27. 27. 4/5/2014 CAUSES OF FACIAL PAIN Facial pain can be caused by anything, from an infection to nerve damage in the face. Common causes for facial pain include: • oral infections • ulcers (open sores) • abscess (collection of pus under the surface tissue in the mouth, for example) • skin abscess (collection of pus under the skin) • headache • facial injury • toothache
  28. 28. 4/5/2014 More serious causes for facial pain include: • herpes zoster (shingles) • migraine • sinusitis (sinus infection) • nerve disorder
  29. 29. 4/5/2014 CHRONIC OROFACIAL PAIN
  30. 30. 4/5/2014 TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA
  31. 31. 4/5/2014
  32. 32. 4/5/2014 TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA • Tic douloureux / fothergill’s neuralgia • Paroxysms of fleeting ,excruciating u/l facial pain, usually lasting less than a minute. • Usually V2/V3 , rarely V1 • MC – adv age, women , rt side • Stimulation of trigger zone – pain • Pain – by activities like talking, chewing, brushing teeth, exposure to cold, by wind on face
  33. 33. 4/5/2014
  34. 34. 4/5/2014 • Trigeminal / gasserian / semilunar ganglion • Situated just beside pons in a shallow depression in petrous apex – meckel’s cave • Sensory root enters the pons course dorsomedially & terminate within brainstem: Nucleus of spinal tract of Vth N Main/Principal sensory nucleus Mesencephalic nucleus
  35. 35. 4/5/2014 • Fibres – pain & temp – enter spinal tract of trigeminal & descend to various levels depending on their somatotropic origin, then synapse in adjacent nucleus of spinal tract. • The axons of second order neurons cross midline, aggregate as trigeminothalamic tract & ascend to VPM • From VPM , fibres project through thalamic radiations to sensory cortex in post central gyrus
  36. 36. 4/5/2014
  37. 37. 4/5/2014 • B/L Weakness of muscles of mastication with inability to close the mouth ( dangling jaw ) – motor neuron ds, neuromuscular transmission disorder, myopathy Clinical examination motor functions
  38. 38. 4/5/2014 Clinical examination SENSORY FUNCTIONS • Pain, touch, heat, cold – tested on face & mucous membranes • Each of the 3 divisions of Vth.N is tested individually and compared with the opposite side.
  39. 39. 4/5/2014 Stimulate Direct corneal reflex Consensual corneal reflex Complete VthN lesion Involved eye Absent Absent Opposite eye Normal Normal Complete VIIthN lesion Involved eye Absent Normal Opposite eye Normal Absent
  40. 40. 4/5/2014
  41. 41. 4/5/2014 Second-Order Neuron; Some times is called a transmission neuron since it transfer the impulse on to higher center . The synapse of the primary afferent and second-order neuron occurs in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord .
