Abstract

AbstractAimsThe incidence of chronic pain after total knee replacement (TKR) is approx. 20%, why preoperative risk factors for the development of chronic postoperative pain are highly warranted. Studies have indicated that preoperative inflammatory markers hold prognostic information for the development of chronic postoperative pain. Long-non-coding-RNA (lncRNA) regulates the expression of genes related with e.g. inflammation. The current study aimed to investigate the preoperative influence of lncRNA on the development of chronic postoperative pain following TKR.Methods24 patients, who developed chronic postoperative pain and 12 patients with painfree recovery, were sampled from a larger clinical study. Preoperative serum samples were obtained from all patients and analyzed for potential lncRNA candidates. Briefly, total RNA was extracted from serum using miRNeasy Mini kit.cDNA samples were pre-amplified with RT2lncRNAPreAMP Primer Mix that contained specific set of primers to target genes of Human RT2lncRNA Inflammatory Response & Autoimmunity PCR Array.
