Özet

Background: Insufficient relief of postthoracotomy pain is a major cause of increased rates of postoperative complications including inadequate coughing, mucous plugging, hypoxia, compromised ventilation or even bacterial lung infection. We aimed to assess the efficacy of transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) in patients with postthoracotomy pain.
