Abstract [en]

Background and aims: Despite improvements in surgical technique, 5%–8% of patients undergoing herniorrhaphy still suffer from clinically relevant persistent postherniotomy pain. This is a problem at both individual and society levels. The aim of this study was to determine whether or not a single nucleotide polymorphism in a specific gene contributes to the development of persistent pain after surgery.

Methods: One hundred individuals with persistent postherniotomy pain, along with 100 without pain matched for age, gender and type of surgery were identified in a previous cohort study on patients operated for groin hernia. All patients underwent a thorough sensory examination and blood samples were collected. DNA was extracted and analysed for single nucleotide polymorphism in the Mu opioid receptor, TNF-α, GRIK3, GCH1, BDNF and CACNA2D2 genes.

Results: Patients with neuropathic pain were found to have a homozygous single nucleotide polymorph in the TNF-α gene significantly more often than pain-free patients (P = 0.036, one-tailed test).

Conclusions: SNP in the TNF-α gene has a significant impact on the risk for developing PPSP.

Implications: The result suggests the involvement of genetic variance in the development of pain and this requires further investigation.
