Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

12 Scopus citations


Six cases of xiphodynia are reported. Xiphodynia is probably much more common than is generally appreciated and should be included in the differential diagnosis of obscure, unusual, or atypical abdominal or thoracic pain. Once considered, the diagnosis is simple and the treatment dramatically effective in relieving the patient of pain and in obviating the need for a myriad of diagnostic tests and procedures.
