Abstract : The basic mechanisms underlying phantom pain as well as the diagnostic and treatment procedures are difficult to keep track of and coordinate during both teaching and clinical application. A figure summarizing the major mechanisms is provided along with the rational upon which each treatment is based. A flow sheet outlining when to do each diagnostic and treatment procedure and providing options based on results of each is provided to simplify teaching and keeping track of progress through a complex process. Only treatment with at least a fair success record on follow-up are included. (Author)
