Pijn bij dermatologische ingrepen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


The number of surgical procedures performed by the
average dermatologist is increasing. During every procedure,
some form of pain is experienced by the patient.
Research investigating pain during dermatologic surgery
is scarce. Some available prospective studies about postoperative
pain after Mohs-surgery, identified possible risk
factors for pain: age, type of closure, number of Mohsstages
and number of excision sites. This list is probably
not yet complete. There are several methods to minimize
pain during injection of local anaesthetics, such as the
buffering of the anaesthetic with sodium bicarbonate and
the use of a small needle size. Research dealing with
peri-operative pain during dermatologic surgery needs
to be expanded to identify risk factors associated with
hyperalgesia and to improve patient care and patient
