Anaesthesia and pain research at Subiaco
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) is now known to be one of the most common complications of major surgery. Rates are variable and surgery specific, ranging from as low as 10% to as high as 70% with a significant neuropathic component and reduction in quality of life. The University of Melbourne has calculated the likely cost of CPSP to the Australian community is approximately $3 billion.
