Abstract

The reasons for development of chronic pain are poorly understood. Chronic postoperative pain is linked to severe acute postoperative pain. Head and neck pain is often a complex phenomenon that requires meticulous diagnosis and treatment. Institution of early multimodal analgesic regimens by multidisciplinary teams may attenuate chronic pain formation and propagation in the otolaryngologic patient.
