Rebound pain as a side effect of regional anaesthesia is an excessive sensation of pain after the effect of local anaesthesia has subsided. This sensation goes well beyond the normal wound pain following a surgical intervention. This phenomenon has entered focus of research in the past 10 years now, but the specific causes are so far unclear and there are still no targeted treatment recommendations.
