The Stability of a Ketamine-Morphine Solution
(Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins, 2002)
Recent advances in acute pain mechanisms and management have implicated the N-methyl D-aspartate receptor-ion channel complex in the development of postoperative hyperalgesia and acute opioid tolerance. N-methyl D-aspartate ...
Factors associated with refusal to enter a clinical trial: epidural anesthesia is a deterrent to participation
(Springer Verlag, 2002-06)

Prospective diary study of nonpainful and painful phantom sensations in a preselected sample of child and adolescent amputees reporting phantom limbs.
(Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins, 2004)
Objective: To prospectively study factors associated with the occurrence of phantom sensations and pains in a pre-selected sample of child and adolescent amputees reporting phantom limbs. Design: Prospective diary study ...
Dissociation of phantom limb phenomena from stump tactile spatial acuity and sensory thresholds
