Summary

This is an observational study analyzing retrospective and prospective collection of information on 100 of the investigators' patients who underwent surgical nerve decompression between 1/1/2007 and 12/31/2012 for the relief of postoperative neurogenic pain after trunk surgery. We will record and analyze pre- and post-operative data from a chart review, to include demographic information, medical and surgical history, physical exam findings, intraoperative details, pathology and imaging results.
