Analysis of SCN9A Gene Variants for Acute and Chronic Postoperative Pain and Morphine Consumption After Total Hysterectomy.


Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the voltage-gated sodium channel alpha subunit gene (SCN9A) have been associated with pain in various settings. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of the SNPs to evaluate the influence of common gene variants on chronic postoperative pain (CPSP) and other related pain variables in a cohort of patients who underwent a scheduled hysterectomy.
