Abstract
Acupuncture has been used as therapeutic treatment for the health of the Chinese people for more than 3000 years; it is a system for diagnosing and treating disease using fine needles inserted into specific points of the body. Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of conditions. This article discusses the use of acupuncture in the management of pain of musculoskeletal and neurologic origin, with a focus on pain in spinal cord injuries.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To investigate acupuncture treatment during labour with regard to pain intensity, degree of relaxation and outcome of the delivery. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Delivery ward at a tertiary care centre hospital in Sweden. POPULATION: Ninety parturients who delivered during the period April 12, 1999 and June 4, 2000. METHODS: Forty-six parturients were randomised to receive acupuncture treatment during labour as a compliment, or an alternative, to conventional analgesia. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Assessments of pain intensity and degree of relaxation during labour, together with evaluation of delivery outcome. RESULTS: Acupuncture treatment during labour significantly reduced the need of epidural analgesia (12% vs 22%, relative risk [RR] 0.52, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.30 to 0.92). Parturients who received acupuncture assessed a significantly better degree of relaxation compared with the control group (mean difference -0.93, 95% CI -1.66 to -0.20). No negative effects of acupuncture given during labour were found in relation to delivery outcome. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that acupuncture could be a good alternative or complement to those parturients who seek an alternative to pharmacological analgesia in childbirth. Further trials with a larger number of patients are required to clarify if the main effect of acupuncture during labour is analgesic or relaxing.

Abstract
Addiction to alcohol and illicit drugs occurs in approximately 10% of the Canadian population and thus likely affects numerous perioperative patients. Provision of perioperative analgesia to these patients is challenging for physiological and behavioural reasons. Seven electronic databases were searched to identify papers addressing the perioperative management of analgesia in addicted patients.
There are few controlled trials on addiction care in obstetrical management, and controlled trials are lacking in obstetrical analgesia and addiction and in perioperative analgesia and addiction. The focus of the limited number of publications in the obstetrical population is on addiction management during pregnancy and does not address analgesic requirements. There are principle-based discussions on factors affecting analgesic management in patients receiving chronic opioid therapy and multimodal analgesic therapy. This discourse includes consideration of the physiological and affective factors that impact perioperative management. A number of empirically derived protocols available for managing alcohol withdrawal are based on response to the physical manifestations of withdrawal. Protocols for management of patients receiving opioid replacement therapy for opioid addiction are also well described. Nevertheless, evaluations of these protocols are lacking in clinical trials, and the impact of addiction on perioperative outcomes is unknown.
Perioperative analgesic management of addicted patients remains poorly understood. Most clinical trials specifically exclude addicted patients. Suggestions for management are provided.

Abstract
The goal of this study was to describe the logistic and clinical set-up at four Danish arthroplasty departments offering fast-track surgery.
Based on the National Patient Registry's information on patients who have undergone total hip and knee arthroplasty, four departments were chosen for evaluation in accordance with the following inclusion criteria: documented fast-track surgery with written care plans, a surgical volume of > 450 arthroplasties and short length of stay (LOS) (

Abstract
The causes of pain were analysed in 200 patients referred to a multidisciplinary pain clinic for cancer patients. In 158 patients, pain caused directly by tumour growth was found, 116 patients had pain secondary to the cancer disease or treatment while 33 patients had pain caused by factors unrelated to the cancer disease. The patients had many different combinations of causes of pain and the majority had more than one cause of pain. At the first contact and after treatment for 1-2 weeks, the patients were asked whether they had pain on movement, at rest or pain which interrupted sleep. After treatment for 1-2 weeks and after treatment for more than two weeks, the patients assessed the relief of pain obtained (none, slight, moderate, considerable, complete). The majority of patients achieved relief of pain at rest and during sleep while movement was still accompanied by pain in a number of patients. The majority of patients considered that the relief of pain obtained was moderate or considerable. Treatment consisted of adjustment of medication, blockades and epidural opioids supplemented by psychological intervention and help from social workers in selected patients.
